Four BALI Landscaping Awards

19th September 2012

Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd is delighted to have won four BALI Awards for 2012. These included two for hard landscaping, one in the green roof category and one (joint award) for soft landscaping at The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.  To see photos and the scope of these projects click on the attached links.

Hard landscaping:  Jubilee Garden, London
Judges' comments: “A high profile scheme with high specifications and a high level of build and craftsmanship.  Good detail in the granite setts.  All levels 1st class and working well in heavy rainfall.  Good height construction all around the scheme to allow for sitting and the joints between the granite setts are perfect.”

Hard landscaping:  Parkway, Newbury
Judges' Comments: “Very sharp workmanship, good execution.  An eye to detail has delivered good straight paving lines with excellent cuts to match in with existing and detail to manhole covers. The degree of difficulty was high as many trades were working all at once in same area.”

Green Roof:  Peacehaven, Nr Brighton
Judges' comments: “This is a fine example of a successful contract and research programme. The treatment plant is not visible from the neighbouring housing except for the green roof which blends naturally within the surrounding Sussex Downs.”

Soft Landscaping:  The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (Joint submission with Gavin Jones, White Horse Contractors and Willerby Landscapes)
Judges' comments: “As a nation, we have celebrated the achievements of Team GB Olympic and Paralympic athletes and recognised the superb organisation of professionals and volunteers to stage the London 2012 Olympic Games.  The landscaping of the main Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park played a vital role, creating a natural parkland setting with stunning wild flower meadows, wetland habitats, gardens and spectator lawn areas.  BALI contractors worked in close collaboration with Landscape Architects and the Olympic Development Authority to transform this once derelict and polluted site into a ‘Green Legacy’ park for future generations.  The vast scale and challenging environment of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was approached with confidence and professionalism by BALI contractors whilst working closely with leading industry specialists in meadow plantation from Sheffield University to trial and perfect this relatively new and exciting naturalistic landscape technique.”
