What people say
Our Vertical Meadow hoarding attracts lots of interest and positive comments from local residents and operatives on site, and it’s a small but rewarding part of the day for our project team in looking after it.
Senior Site Manager, Blenheim House Construction
Not only is Vertical Meadow in keeping with our ambitious environmental targets, but it also creates a much better outlook for our neighbours during the course of construction. Over the summer it has started to thrive, and we look forward to using it on future schemes.
Design Director, Grosvenor
We have assessed Vertical Meadow and consider it to be an innovative, flower rich and structurally diverse habitat which would make a valuable contribution to national biodiversity programmes.
Director, The Wildlife Trusts
Our office is directly opposite a Vertical Meadow and it’s a welcome change to see plants and flowers sprouting from the scaffolding rather than the usual ugly plastic cover. It’s a calming influence.
Why our living walls? Helping nature, communities and your reputation to thrive
Turn construction sites from a neighbourhood nuisance into a community asset. Vertical Meadow provides attractive visual screening, helps contain dust, and can reduce noise by up to 15dB. It creates something for the community to enjoy year-round, rather than something they seek to avoid or complain about. Permanent facade installations prolong the benefit.
The Construction Industry Council recognises the built environment as a major contributor to the breakdown of biodiversity. Vertical Meadow uses species-rich native grass and wildflower seed mixes to provide a haven for pollinators, insects, birds and butterflies. Temporary installations ensure the continuity of biodiversity during construction, creating a bridge between pre-development and post-completion. Both permanent and temporary installations provide ‘stepping stones’ for nature across the city between larger existing green spaces.
Construction site installations contribute to the Considerate Constructors Scheme which in turn contributes to additional BREEAM sustainability assessment points and also responds to green hoarding requirements that local authority Codes of Construction Practice increasingly mandate. Permanent installations contribute to Biodiversity Net Gain, Urban Greening Factors as now stipulated for planning permission.
Authentic nature-based interventions like Vertical Meadow help demonstrate Corporate Social Responsibility in a visible and meaningful way, sending a clear message to the public, the media and customers. Property values, rental rates and footfall have all been shown to increase when nature is included in the construction. And funders are increasingly focused on investments with strong green credentials.
