Bristol Harbourside Building 4 is part of the larger Bristol Harbourside development by Crest Nicholson within Bristol’s former industrial waterfront areas, which has been redeveloped over the last 10 years. Building 4 and Millenium Promenade is one of the last parts of the area to be redeveloped; it consists of one large apartment block and a promenade in front of it which leads down to the historic harbour.

It includes one of the only wildflower meadows in Bristol City Centre, it also contains wildflora planting, Yew and Box hedging plants.

Commenting on the company’s success, Paul Lynch said: “As with a lot of successful businesses, our strengths lie in our people – their skills, professionalism and the pride they take in their work. This award is a reflection of the effort they all put into their jobs on an everyday basis. Although we won awards for two projects within this category, to win the principal award for Bristol Harbourside reiterates our commitment to carrying out successful landscaping schemes in the Bristol area
