Project Name – Crossrail Roof Terrace
Contractor – Blakedown Landscapes
Architect – Gillespies
Project Information – The new Crossrail station in the North Dock of West India Quay, immediately north of Canary Wharf, has been transformed by the new station designed by Foster + Partners. Atop the new station is the roof park/garden covering over 5300m2 and designed by Gillespies. The primary function of the roof garden is as a publicly accessible garden space. The innovative space offers a unique climate with a partly covered roof; specialist planting plays a key role in the journey across the garden
Bourne Amenity Involvement – A fantastic project to be involved with that now plays a key role in creating an urban space of tranquillity and calm in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the financial district. We supplied close to 1,000 tonne of certified topsoil and subsoil into this scheme, along with specialist tree planting substrate to support the ferns and mature trees that were craned in via the roof.
“Bourne Amenity became part of the team at Crossrail and helped to make sure material was delivered exactly when required and to the high standard we expect. The evidence of the quality of the product is evidence now several years on as the garden has matured and the planting is flourishing” - Chris Wellbelove, Director, Blakedown Landscapes
