Roof Gardens installation, Terraces & Podium Landscapes – the leading contractor for London’s Construction sector

Roof Garden installation contractor proud to lead the way in the technical expertise and practical delivery of rooftop projects in London.

Why do commercial buildings have Roof Gardens?

Roof Terraces are one of the most sought-after features of new or refurbished developments. They are one of the few architectural features to combine glamour, serenity and practicality with city living or working, as well as transforming an otherwise unused area into an attractive and usable outdoor space that adds value for tenants. For residential buildings, they offer an attractive communal space which appeals to potential buyers and justifies increased prices or rates. For commercial buildings, they help attract companies keen to be linked with iconic buildings, and are a benefit for staff. They also bring habitats and biodiversity to urban cities, giving city dwellers and workers a revitalising connection to nature.

The Roof Garden installation contractor for London’s Construction Sector

Valley Landscape Construction are highly experienced Roof Garden installation contractors with knowledge and an eye for detail rivaled by none other. We have successfully installed Roof Gardens for some of London’s major construction companies and housing associations. We do not undertake domestic work, and have geared the company to focus on commercial construction projects.

Working with us

Whether creating in-house designs or working from existing drawings, we fulfil our clients’ vision with the project delivery and workmanship quality for which we have become recognised for – often going the extra mile if needed to meet tight deadlines.

Through close liaison with all stakeholders involved, including architects and other contractors, we build trusting and mutually beneficial relationships with our clients which often results in us working together on another project in the future – it works both ways!

Popular features of a Roof Garden:

  • Artificial grass, decking or paving – often mixed.
  • Bespoke planters – often with integral seating.
  • Raised plant beds and benches.
  • Use of composite materials due to longevity.
  • Mixture of open and enclosed spaces.
  • Outdoor seating, sunbathing and dining furniture.
  • In-built storage.

Roof Garden Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs) & Running Tracks

Some new developments, especially schools and commercial office buildings, have included Running Tracks and Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs). For schools, this enables them to enjoy sports facilities without having to use valuable and limited ground space. For commercial developments, it attracts companies to the building by offering class, superb working environments and valuable staff benefits.

Among the many benefits of Valley Landscape Construction is our specialist focus on recreational installations, and you can find out more on our expertise in MUGAs and sports facilities below.

Design & Build for Roof Gardens and Terraces

Valley Landscape Construction can provide a full specification, design and build service, either working from existing drawings or creating our own designs. We fully understand the balance of creating a desirable and pleasant roof garden, while considering the practical feasibilities of having a landscaped area at height in a busy area. Practical points we consider include:

  • Limitations on weight loads.
  • Limitations on fixing methods where insulation and waterproofing layers cannot be penetrated.
  • Lifting methods available or required for plant, specified materials and equipment.
  • Location of electricity and water points if required within the Roof Terrace.
  • Ability to withstand high winds and adverse weather.
  • Utilising composite materials where possible.
  • Growth depths required for specified planting.
  • Minimal maintenance.
  • The client’s budget.
