idverde wins 4 prestigious BALI awards

idverde UK are delighted to announce that we have won 4 BALI awards at the prestigious BALI 2021 National Landscape Awards.

This year’s awards saw 79 winners announced across the 29 award categories, with idverde going up against strong competition from several companies and projects within the industry.

Every project entered, is subject to site visits and scrutinised by a judge who then decides with a panel of judges if the winners really do represent the best of landscape design and construction in the industry. The awards are designed to reward professional excellence and acknowledge the work that has been carried out on each individual project.

idverde’s BALI award winning projects for 2021 are:


idverde for Whitfield Gardens
idverde for South Thamesmead Public Realm


idverde for Gloucester Gate Playground


idverde for Wildlife Ways


Whitfield Gardens

The project at Whitfield Gardens saw the teams undertake the regeneration of an existing area as part of the ‘West End Project’ for the London Borough of Camden. Situated in the Heart of London, just off Tottenham Court Road the busy public space looked dated and unused. Acting as the principal contractor, idverde was appointed to re-model the space with an ambitious and technical scheme that has greatly enhanced the local surroundings. The remodelling works consisted of the design and installation of bespoke planters and street furniture, lighting, Portuguese granite and works to the Fitzrova mural.

South Thamesmead

The South Thamesmead Public Realm project was a series high profile works, to deliver the first phase of regeneration and improvements to the green the environments of Southmere and Parkview which was designed to bring green spaces to residents’ doorsteps. The estate was divided into several areas of activity, with idverde’s teams delivering the works over 16 separate sites. Opportunities for play were introduced across the scheme with much of the landscape designed to be play friendly for residents.

Gloucester Gate Playground

There has been a play area at Gloucester Gate in The Regent’s Park since the 1930’s and over the years there have been many modifications and upgrades. However, in 2016 The Royal Parks made the decision to decommission and demolish the tired and relatively uninspiring play area, replacing it with a larger, multilevel scheme which would be attractive to all ages.  The design for the new play area features several zoned play areas constructed on a large accessible mound, each zone reflects old English names for woodland areas. The scheme aims to provide opportunities for creative and imaginative play in a social environment through the basic physical activities of climbing, swinging and sliding.

Wildlife Ways

Wildlife Ways is a programme of works in partnership with Solihull Council, designed to make Solihull greener by opening up and improving existing paths and cycle routes whilst allowing wildlife to flourish. The project has already improved 69km of existing footpath and cycle networks. There are 23km of new footways and improved access for cyclists. The routes have all been landscaped and link, where possible to existing green spaces and offer sustainable transport options.  The project has improved the habitat value of 56 hectares of parks and open spaces for the benefit of people and wildlife – more than 90 football pitches!

The next stage of the 2021 Awards will be held at JW Marriott Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London in December where the overall winners from each category will be announced.
