On this project, we were the main landscaping contractors delivering a complete landscaping package for Telford Homes, including hard, soft and a play area.
The works included the installation of in-situ concrete formwork to create the retaining walls. Alongside this we installed raised planters for all the beds and some of the boundary walls. We also installed Robinia play equipment and safety surfacing to suit the free fall height requirements. Installation of natural York stone, precast slabs, artificial grass and resin bound stone gave varied and interesting surface finishes to the whole project.
High standard soft landscaping enhanced the whole site, including the installation of a complete irrigation system and ongoing maintenance. Surface drainage and lighting column pads were all included within the scope. Valley Provincial Group supplies all materials as part of our contract.
Battling time constraints
A prior hold up compressed our workload to very tight time limits. However, we were still able to carry out our works through detailed planning and site coordination to complete the project on time.
Some of the originally specified products were special order items with minimum order quantities. We were able to assist the client to find alternatives which in turn saved considerable costs.
Carrying out the complete landscaping as the main contractors relieved the pressure on our client. It would have been very difficult in the time constraints at the end of the job to run different contractors along side each other.
“Valley Provincial supplied and installed all hard and soft landscaping works to our project Carmen Street in Poplar, London.
Having no experience of using them before I was quickly impressed with their turnaround in knowledge and understanding of our landscape scheme. Valley were added to our tender list far later than others but it was clear that they had gained a thorough understanding of our requirements within a short space of time.
Valley Provincial were particularly helpful in assisting in the development of our design details, as well as suggesting options and alternatives to the drawn scheme. All materials were ordered promptly and they mobilised on site very quickly in order to achieve our programme requirements.
The feedback on their health and safety performance on site was very good and there were no issues with their workmanship.
The landscape scheme looks great and I would recommend them as a company.”
