Our Projects

The Tide | Greenwich, London

LOCATION: Greenwich
SIZE OF PROJECT: 1 km
BUILD TIME: 12 months (plus two year aftercare period)
 
The brief for Cultura, was to implement the soft landscaping to what is London’s first elevated linear park. The natural themed planting opens up the river and creates a space for communities to come together to absorb the art, relax, contemplate and people watch.
 
Project Details:
 
The works included seven ground level planting areas and six elevated bridge islands. With a natural theme, species included native trees such as pines and silver birches and natural vegetation.
 
The project called for Cultura's expertise in craning weighty (up to 450 kilos) and easily damaged (soft barks of the pines) trees safely to the bridge islands, which ranged from 5-16 metres in height.  This was achieved using a telehandler and with a five-man team steadying and guiding the trees into their set positions. Weight bearing implications to the ground level podium slabs were also of concern. And here, the solution was to use specialised mats to spread the weight of the crane. Close collaboration was also called into play with the landscape architect to ensure that the tress were well secured into the tree pits, due to the elevated nature of the planting.

Cultura performed well in all aspects of the work carried out at Austen Academy. The team worked well with us throughout the process, our programme requirements were met and the work produced was to a very high standard and received well by all parties. We would have no second thoughts in using Cultura again on future projects.

We were pleased with the services delivered and the endeavours of Cultura on the Tide Project, Greenwich. There were many challenges presented including: a complex design with an extensive number of trees and plants; the logistics of planting over 20 trees at heights exceeding five metres with restricted access; and the interface with both TFL (the majority of the works were carried out above North Greenwich Station) and other trades and contractors working simultaneously on the site. Due to the collaborative and team working between Cultura and JP Dunn, these were just a few of the many hurdles that were jointly overcome to achieve a successful project conclusion.

Working collaboratively with us, the landscape architects and the client, we, as a team, successfully delivered the client’s vision on this demanding scheme. We were particularly impressed with the specialist landscaping expertise demonstrated by Cultura, with technical support and timely resolution of project challenges. We would definitely recommend Cultura and would be more than happy to work with them on any future projects.

The Cultura team that visited Lawson House were efficient, hard working, polite and very good at liaising with both the residents and staff on site to ensure the gardens were looking great. Cultura also attended this week and completed all of the work required to an excellent standard.

I have found Cultura provides a great service. The guys on site turn up on time and keep their areas clean and tidy. The supervisor is very knowledgeable and is always happy to help or assist. Overall my experience with Cultura has been a good one and I would be happy to work with the team on future projects.
