24 Sep 2019 | BALI Member News

Green space management company and BALI Registered Contractor idverde, is delighted to have been awarded two prestigious National Awards from the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) for demonstrating professional excellence in grounds maintenance and soft landscaping.

Considered by many to be the ‘Oscars’ of the landscaping industry, the annual BALI National Landscape Awards are now in their 43rd year. The Awards recognise the high levels of professionalism delivered by BALI members, and entries are judged by a panel of acclaimed industry experts, who assess each scheme against criteria including quality, sustainability, and client satisfaction.

This year, idverde picked up awards in two categories, representing excellence in two different disciplines:

  • Soft landscaping construction (non-domestic) – over £500k for Sauchiehall Street Avenue, Glasgow

Sauchiehall Street Avenue, Glasgow - Idverde

  • Grounds Maintenance – free public access for The Regent’s Park, London

BALI Chief Executive, Wayne Grills, said:

“Looking at the results this year, it’s clear our members are some of the world’s most talented, highly skilled landscape professionals, with projects that continue to set the benchmark in quality standards. Using cutting-edge technology and incorporating state-of-the-art materials helps to define these schemes and set them on pedestals that are in a league of their own.”

idverde colleagues and clients involved in the award-winning projects will join BALI members and representatives from across the landscaping industry at an awards ceremony at the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, London on 6th December where the Principal Award will be presented to the scheme judged to be the best in its category. The scheme judged preeminent across all of the winning schemes will receive BALI’s Grand Award, the landscaping industry’s ultimate accolade.

Commenting on this year’s BALI Awards success, idverde CEO, Doug Graham, said:

“idverde has a long history of success in the BALI Awards and we are delighted to have been selected for awards in two categories this year. This achievement demonstrates the skill and commitment of our colleagues across the business who consistently deliver top quality services to our clients. Congratulations to all those involved in these award-winning projects.”
