External space is at a premium in densely
developed sites such as Great Ormond Street Hospital. When,
therefore, Morgan Stanley donated their Chelsea Flower Show garden
to Great Ormond Street, a roof was made accessible and was turned
into a roof garden.
WGI was tasked with the preparation of the
roof, in order to accept the garden once the show was over.
The installation of the garden was orchestrated
by BBC's DIY SOS programme.
Through careful planning and communication with
the garden's designer, Chris Beardshaw, we managed to prepare the
site so all elements could be installed with the necessary
variations from the show to turn the garden into a roof garden.
One added complication was to prepare installation by a
relatively unskilled workforce, the volunteers who support the BBC
programme. Health and safety was therefore of paramount
