A stunning 2.5 acre landscape situated on a 4th floor podium deck with spectacular panoramic views of the City; the iconic Wembley Arch as a backdrop; a uniquely challenging concept to extend the interior design and spatial concepts into outdoor “rooms”; a natural flow from space to space, with trees as way finders, their canopies of lighter foliage allowing light and views; planting that leads you effortlessly on a natural path, blending and merging each transition from garden to garden, seamlessly for home-growing, homeworking, pets and play.
“Peter and Goddards have excelled. A contractor we can trust – the primary factor on a project of this stature and complexity This reflects across the team; masterful, responsive and all equally vested in achieving a superior end result.” – Scott Young, Quintain [CLIENT]
“A very strong relationship with the Goddards team and all involved, an absolute necessity in a project of this nature and importance. Detailing was met on all elements of the soft landscaping, from the initial plant and tree selection to programme management and execution. Considerately planted and professionally finished – a first-class delivery of exemplary landscaping.” Angeli Ganoo-Fletcher, Director of Landscape, PRP [DESIGNER]
Once a large derelict turbine site on the edge of Farnborough airport, now transformed into a prestigious housing development with the help of high specification soft landscaping.
Designed, built, and installed planters for this prestigious development and important client in the heart of London. Access, height and covid all posed challenges, but the end result was highly successful.
Contracted to Laing O’Rourke, designed by Landscape Architect BBUK, and in association with lead architect AHMM, the 7,500 square foot rooftop garden is the largest roof terrace in London’s West End.
Accessed by residents, tenants, commercial, and retail units, with public areas offering panoramic views to most parts of the city.
Roof Garden Installations including Bespoke Planters & Furniture, Ecology items, Tree, Herbaceous & Shrub planting, Green Walls & Play Equipment. All requiring close co-ordination with other trades, in a very restricted central London site with strict access protocols.
In recognising high levels of professionalism, workmanship and client satisfaction the scheme received a coveted BALI award.
37 years on from the Victorian Garden receiving a GOLD AWARD at the Chelsea Flower Show the summerhouse has finally succumbed to old age and collapsed. Unlike the Company that has grown from strength to strength.
The Company is determined not to get held up with potential import problems next year so is stocking up with very large trees in its holding nursery in Surrey. Having this facility allows the firm to be ahead of the game and insure availability and programme dates.
Despite all the challenges this has presented, the Company has continued to complete many prestigious contracts, including this one in NW London, all safely and within the guidelines. Many new contracts now in the wings so fingers crossed.
We are building some great teams here at Goddards and another successful sign of this is the in-house promotion of Ashley Clarke from Team Leader to Contract Supervisor – initially Ashley will be overseeing our works at Wembley Park which, as can be seen, are progressing well.
We are currently installing playing surfaces and landscaping around 3 schools, 2 in Hove and the other in Rickmansworth, with Kier Construction with completion of the former in August and the latter in December 2019.
In June we carried out the preparation of sub-bases and installation of Breedon Gravel Surfaces to enable wheelchair access at the Sufra Community Garden, NW10, on behalf of Sisk Construction.
