Dec '15 - 2015 BALI Awards
The annual BALI awards event at the Grovesnor Hotel on Park Lane continues to go from strength to strength, and 2015 was no exeption.
"We need a bigger venue" was the comment from BALI Chief Executive Wayne Grills when the 870 delegates took their seats as this years awards. In all the years we have been sponsering the awards, there was no doubt that this year the venue was bursting at the seams with the leading lights of the landscaping industry.
The industy is currently in rude health, and the 2015 awards served to celebrate the innovation, man hours and dedication that go into creating the sumptious green spaces that enrich our surroundings.
This year was a particular triumph, as Bourne Amenity were involved in a record number of the award winning projects (8 in total), including the Grand Award winner at 3 Merchant Square, Tower Hamlets (brainchild of the multi-award winning Frosts Landscapes).
Projects like the Sky Garden, that sits on the 37th floor of the Walkie Talkie building in central London are not only visually stunning but a pure feat of engineering. It was another feather in the cap for serial award winners Willerby Landscapes, and involved craning over 100 tonne bags of Bourne Amenity soil 525ft. above the London streets.
The schemes we are seening are becoming more daring and brilliant every year, and we are excited and priviledged to be working with these innovators who continue to push the envelope and challenge their suppliers to match the ambitions of the designers.
Congratulations to everyone involved in the event and especially to Wayne and BALI, who represent the industry with style and dedication and yes Wayne, we will need a bigger venue next year!
