The winners have been revealed for the inaugural Pro Landscaper Podium Awards, which were sponsored by Bourne Amenity. The event took place at FutureScape Spring on Tuesday 12 March at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey.
The Podium Awards are the only ones of their kind in the industry to recognise the phenomenal podium landscapes being created across the UK.
Landscape architects fabrik Limited were announced as the Supreme Winner for the firm’s fantastic Fulham Riverside project, which also won the Commercial Design category.
Fabrik’s recent project, Fulham Riverside, has scooped not only the Best Commercial Design award but also the Supreme Award at the inaugural Pro Landscaper Podium Awards. Judges said it was “a technically complex project to design showing good attention to detail”. The scheme also received high praise as judges found it “difficult to see how a design for a project such as this can be improved upon”.
Jonathan Bourne, director of Bourne Amenity said:
“Congratulations to the team at fabrik Limited on its Fulham Riverside design. At a full two acres, the scale of the project is impressive and demonstrates how large-scale planting can be transitioned onto podium levels to create stunning landscapes. The ‘gardens within garden’ concept has created a haven for residents in a densely populated part of London as well as satisfying certain SuDS criteria.”
Pro Landscaper’s Jim Wilkinson said: “We are delighted with the quality of entries for our inaugural Podium Awards. The projects are excellent and really show the quality of the UK landscaping sector. Podiums will continue to grow and play a more important role in the industry going forward.
“We look forward to the Podium Awards developing further and reflecting the outstanding technical ability in this sector.
“Well done to all entrants and many congratulations to the 2019 winners.”
