Green Park is celebrating having received two prestigious Royal Horticultural Society awards.
The RHS has awarded Green Park a ‘Gold Award’ in the ‘Commercial Landscape’ category and the ‘Jessica Cecil Award for Outstanding Contribution to Reading’s Environment’ in the 2015 annual Britain in Bloom awards.
The awards are given to Green Park, independent commercial landscape company Quality & Service Ltd, trading as Q&S, and Broadgate Estates which delivers the landscaping for Green Park.
The awards are the fifth given to Green Park over the summer, having won the 'Corporate Achievement Award' by the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) in July, the ‘Best Deal Outside Central London’ award at the Office Agents Society's Development Awards, and named ‘Business Park of the Year’ at the annual Thames Valley Property Awards.
Rory Carson, Director at Oxford Properties and Asset Manager of Green Park, Reading said: “We are thrilled with these two RHS awards, and proud of what the team at Green Park has achieved. Green Park is living testimony that commercial and biodiversity interests can live harmoniously together within the same development, and to mutual benefit.”
Sue Payne, Managing Director, Q&S, said: “We are extremely proud of our landscaping team based at Green Park, who have worked tirelessly alongside Broadgate Estates enhancing the quality of the landscaping on site. By successfully retaining the Gold Award in the Commercial Landscape category, which we first won in 2014, along with winning the prestigious Jessica Cecil Award for an Outstanding Contribution to Reading’s Environment, makes all the hard work worthwhile.
“The landscaping is a key component in the overall experience for everyone who works or visits Green Park, and we are delighted to be part of the evolution of the Park at this exciting time."
Green Park in Reading, owned and managed by Oxford Properties, is 195 acres of stunning parkland and home to more than 50 businesses.
