Green-tech has announced they supplied the ArborRaft Tree Planting System and soil, Platipus tree anchoring system, gtRootbarrier 325 and the Mona Relief Vente tree irrigation system for a £13.5 million redevelopment project at the Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre in Nottingham.
The project has been recently completed ahead of its official opening in September 2015. The state of the art facilities include a 50 metre swimming pool, a changing village, a 1.5km closed road cycling circuit, an upgraded eight lane 400m indoor athletics track, refurbished sports hall, three squash courts, badminton and tennis courts, five improved grass football pitches, two multi-use studios for aerobics, dance and gymnastics, a health suite, gym, pool viewing and spectator seating, vending area and cafeteria facilities.
As a result of the development a large existing tree had be replaced. The contract to do this was awarded to family business Carrier Landscapes Ltd.
The ArborRaft Tree Planting System is a revolutionary system which is installed at the sub-base and offers load-bearing support whilst reducing soil compaction and directing root growth away from the surface in urban environments.
To complete the look and offer protection from vehicles and pedestrians Green-tech also supplied a gt Dales Collection tree grille and guard. Manufactured in cast iron these items are expected to last up to 100 years.
Ray Choudbury, Carrier Landscapes Limited said,
“We have worked with Green-tech for many years and they are our supplier of choice as they offer an efficient service, fast delivery and competitive prices. This was the case here. The product of choice was recommended by Green-tech as a cost effective solution which the Client approved. Green-tech had the items in stock, delivered within time frame given and were the cheapest supplier. The ArborRaft Tree Planting System and ancillary tree planting products are all very good quality and are easy to install. Green tech kindly came out and demonstrated the installation to the company at no cost.”
