Client: Olympics Aquatic Centre
Type of works: 500m2 of ANS Living Wall System
500m2 of ANS Living Wall System were supplied and installed mid-2011 on the Aquatic Centre. After extensive research by the architects involved in the project, the ANS System was the only system that could handle the complex curves and angles of the structure. A full size cross-section was created on the nursery to demonstrate exactly how the ANS System would achieve full coverage with no gaps.
Planted with blue moor grasses (Sesleria Caerulea), the design was to resemble the rippling of water. As the plants move, swathes of blue and green are created, achieving an awe-inspiring visual impact to the already stunning Aquatic centre.
