Urban Greening Projects
2nd April 2014
As part of the AIPH International Green City Conference being held on 1st April 2014 in London, a pre- conference London tour was arranged for 31st March for 37 delegates. The purpose of the tour was to demonstrate examples of urban greening projects in central London that will inspire urban greening initiatives in other cities around the UK and the world.
The tour started by visiting two green wall, on at The Rubens Hotel, Victoria and the other on the side of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern at the entrance to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. In the afternoon the tour visited the gardens for the high profile NEO Bankside residential development near the Tate Modern, and culminated in the transformed Olympic Park.
Unusually in the heart of London, the new outdoor spaces offer NEO Bankside’s residential community as well as members of the public opportunities to engage with nature. Frosts Landscape Construction were involved in the design, construction and maintenance of this scheme and Aidan Lane, Commercial Director from Frosts provided the introduction to the visiting delegates.
Having completed the lion share of the landscaping for the Olympic Games, and the vast majority of soft landscaping for the transformation works in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Frosts were pleased to see first-hand the pleasure and interest shown by the delegates in the development of the Park and the plans for the future.
Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd won a number of BALI Landscaping awards for both NEO Bankside and the Olympics, which can be found on our Awards page.
