Booths Hall Park - Overview

BACKGROUND
Booths Hall Park is set in 220 acres of countryside and comprises a Georgian Manor House (Booths Hall) together with existing 1970s office buildings which have been tastefully restored to provide flexible boutique office suites, together with a dedicated meeting and conference venue.

OUR ROLE
idverde was appointed by Globe Management Services to undertake the renovation of the hard and soft landscaping at Booths Hall Park. We successfully restored the formal plaza areas and walkways working to a sympathetic design and utilising high quality natural materials.
The communal courtyard which links the offices and Booths Hall was constructed using limestone flags and green slate feature banding, with interest being added by the installation of natural stone feature walls and the planting of liquid amber semi-mature courtyard trees and metal seat cubes.

A walkway was constructed linking the Water Lily Pool to the Finale Pool. This includes ‘Outdoor Rooms’ with water cascades, and a water channel running alongside carrying water between the two pools. The project also saw the creation of a formal tree lined avenue, set with informal seating.

Other hardworks undertaken by idverde included the resurfacing of existing footpaths using golden self-binding gravel, cladding to steps and wall features using natural sandstone, and granite sett paving to the car park areas.
Soft landscaping included ornamental planting to the courtyard and its surrounds to differentiate between the historic formal setting and new contemporary areas. This provided an attractive transition between the car park and the refurbished building entrances.

Herbaceous and shrub planting was carried out site-wide together with the planting of 60 semi-mature ornamental trees and 5,500m2 of ornamental turfing. Ancillary works included land drainage, channel drainage and ducting.

Practical completion of the project was followed by a one-year aftercare period.
