Attached are some of the finished photos from FINSBURY PARK which we designed and built last year.
Construction National Magazine described the project very well:
"Finsbury Park required a wide range of systems for this outdoor space to be used by university students in London. Sky Garden had to use all their experience and expertise to successfully bring the components together to create this beautiful finished project.
Surrounding the roof area is a number of hand-crafted British timber planters and fencing. High quality wood and our skilled carpenters create the boundaries of this remarkable space. The planters are fitted with lighting to bring the roof to life with a stunning atmosphere in the evenings.
Raised wooded seating areas and benches give places for the students to sit back and relax in their new amenity space.
Large areas of artificial turf bring colour to the roof, and establish a clean, low-maintenance finish that the students can enjoy all year round.
Two types of paving, along with our resin-bound gravel system, are permeable and allow rainwater to drain efficiently into the sophisticated sub layers across the entire roof. The striking grey colours give an elegant, contemporary feel to the amenity space.
The plants, shrubs and trees chosen for the project were chosen specifically for successful roof application. They will bring a fresh, vibrant sense of life to the area all year round."

Many thanks for the impressive photos. A spectacular railway sleeper project that has been beautifully designed and built, and will be appreciated by students for years to come. Simply brilliant. A real credit to your company.
