White Horse Contractors Win Joint BALI Award for Soft Landscaping Construction Over 1.5M on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London

White Horse Contractors are pleased to have been awarded a BALI 2012 National Landscape Award for a soft landscaping construction over £1.5m, a joint entry with Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd, Gavin Jones Ltd and Willerby Landscapes Ltd.

BALI Awards

The BALI Awards were first introduced in 1976 and are held annually to recognise BALI members who have demonstrated exceptionally high standards of professionalism and skill in the execution of a wide variety of landscaped schemes.

Winning a BALI National Landscape Award is the pinnacle of professional achievement for BALI members. These awards are respected in the UK and abroad as the standard to which others aspire and rightly reflect the prestige of the BALI name and logo.

Olympic park

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, one of the largest to be built of its kind in the UK this century, is over 100 hectares of much needed new parklands in East London.  Approximately 50% of the park provides diverse new areas of wildlife habitat including reedbeds, grasslands, ponds and woodlands along with artificial kingfisher and sand martin nesting banks, two otter holts and many bird and bat boxes that have been incorporated within bridges, retaining walls and venues.

The Judges commented "As a nation, we have celebrated the achievements of Team GB Olympic and Paralympic athletes and recognised the superb organisation of professionals and volunteers to stage the London 2012 Olympic Games.  The landscaping of the main Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park played a vital role, creating a natural parkland setting with stunning wild flower meadows, wetland habitats, gardens and spectator lawn areas...The vast scale and challenging environment of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was approached with confidence and professionalism by BALI contractors whilst working closely with leading industry specialists in meadow plantation from Sheffield University to trial and perfect this relatively new and exciting naturalistic landscape technique."
