Work Starts at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, Dublin

We are pleased to see the arrival on site today of the Biotecture team, to start the first phase of living wall works on the new development at 1-6 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay

11th February 2019 | By Stephen Blamire

The Biotecture team will start the first phase of installation works on site at 1-6 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in the south Dublin docklands. The living wall is due to be completed by the end of February 2019.

The living green wall merges the old and the new, the 10,219sq m (110,000sq ft) building, will now be called 1SJRQ.  The architect Henry J Lyons combines the historic waterfront warehouses with the modern strikingly confident office units.  Bringing nature into our cities is a vital component for a sustainable future. Our connection to the natural world is often overlooked in this increasingly urban world. This green wall has been targeted to bring plants to the very places where we need them in the heart of our modern urban landscapes.

The wall of 126.47 m­­­2  will contain a green matrix of planting including Darts Blanket, Hedera Helix, Pachysandra Variagata, Amera Splendens, Carex, Euphorbia and Erysimum Bowles Mauve and Sarcococca Humillis.  The planted panels that have been grown at our nursery are anticipated to arrive on site in early March 2019.
