Entire external works comprising deep drainage, services, car parks, lake construction and extensive hard and soft landscaping.

Highly intricate and demanding from an engineering point of view was the main retaining wall to the lakes’ waterfall – shown opposite. The lake water was re-circulated and used to cool the building requiring a  constant and close interface with the mechanical engineers.

The soft landscaping comprised a mixture of ornamental and native planting to the car park areas with a formal terraced garden to the rear of the building where we planted a mature 3 metre high instant beech hedge. Despite being planted at the end of March, this was achieved with less than 1% failures. Finally we constructed a sports pitch for the end occupiers’ own staff.
