Pearl is a major insurance company which wanted to move from its London offices to a new headquarters building in Peterborough Busness Park,close to open countryside. Pearl wanted to ensure that employees would benefit from the green setting and asked Weddle Landscape Design to join the Design Team.
Roof gardens are technically demanding, requiring irrigation, drainage, and have special problems of shallow lightweight soils needing special tree anchorage.Inside the building are huge aria, with collections of tropical plants which can be seen from office workspaces.
The Pearl Centre landscape scheme was a complete success and welcomed Pearls employees to their new workplace. At lunchtimes staff can enjoy strolling and sitting in a wide choice of different landscape gardens, and fishing in the lake.
