BOWLES AND WYER - PRINCIPAL AWard WINNER 2017
High-end office block Verde is the refurbished 11-floor Eland House building in Victoria. Bowles & Wyer, contracted by ISG Fit Out, installed bespoke zinc/wooden planters along with a water feature and replacement porcelain tiles over a total area of approximately 800sq m across floors nine and ten on behalf of a new tenant. The contract included a fully automated irrigation system with lighting and external plug sockets.
Planters were filled with a bespoke lightweight soil specifically formulated to accommodate load-bearing constraints and were planted with a selection of mature olives, pines, multi-stemmed Buxus and herbaceous planting. All materials and trees had to be lifted via a tower crane over the course of two weekends, with 100 lifts over two days. Day-to-day access was restricted to one goods lift for all other materials and the total contract length was six weeks.
