Watermatic have irrigated many podiums across the UK ranging from small planted podium terraces on different floor levels to large podiums over car parks including the Olympic Athletes Village.
Initially, we work closely with the architects early on the design stages. Then, with the building company during the construction and finally with the landscape contractors, installing plant rooms, working through slab penetration to the irrigation system.
One of the main purposes of a landscape podium is to introduce natural elements into densely populated urban areas where open green spaces may be limited. It provides a way to incorporate nature and greenery into the built environment, improving the overall quality of life for residents and visitors. Landscape podiums can also serve as recreational spaces, providing areas for walking, relaxation, and social interaction.
Overall, landscape podiums are innovative design solutions that blend urban development with natural elements, creating functional and visually appealing spaces within the built environment.
