Overview Ground Control was engaged to deliver a high-quality, tranquil outdoor living place for this site, the final piece of the nine-year redevelopment of an estate in Islington. Four podium gardens were built in a challenging environment to a tight programme. This required close collaboration with other trades in a similar situation. All materials had to be craned into place, which was a shared resource, so logistical planning was integral to successful delivery. The works included void formers, drainage, water features, cladding, paving, bespoke granite furniture, play and exercise equipment, soils planting and all soft landscaping.
