NW Cambridge Development
Eddington, Cambridge, England
What we did
As part of Willerby’s established, valued and trusted supply chain, Green-tech Specifier advised on all key materials required to enable a successful development for a project of this scale.
As well as all the tree planting materials, Green-tech Specifier advised the use of more than 500 tonnes of Green-tee amenity soil; a load-bearing, fertile soil which is designed especially for use in urban environments. In order to improve stability and reduce compaction of heavy trafficked areas such as, sports pitches and grassed areas, 100 tonnes of Loksand Rootzone was also supplied.
To deliver water directly to tree and shrub roots at a consistent level, Green-tech Specifier recommended the use of more than 500 Mona irrigation systems with accompanying Aria inlets, Mona Relief Vente and Piazz inlets.
Approximately 800kg of bespoke John Chambers grass seed and John Chambers wildflower seed was supplied to encourage birds, bats and amphibians to flourish, as well as wildflower meadows and wetlands. By providing this for the green spaces, it not only creates stunning displays but also provides habitats for wildlife and boosts biodiversity. Biodiversity was of high importance during the design, and it was important that unique measures were integrated in all aspects of Eddington to encourage visitors and residents to lead more sustainable lives.
