Living Walls As A Site Barrier at The NEC

Acoustic value

We were contracted to provide a striped living wall as a sound barrier and beautiful visual addition to the site in 2012.  The living wall is supported by a steel frame and the reverse side of the wall has a wire climber system also installed by Viritopia.

Back on board

It's July 2019 and the living walls are now back in pristine condition.  Unfortunately these stunning vertical gardens were neglected for a few years by a maintenance company un-qualified for tending to the living wall system.  However, we are pleased to say that we are now back on board and able to take full care of the maintenance so the living walls can flourish!
