Lightweight soils and aggregates for Wembley Park E03 Podium Soft Landscape

Wembley Park Roof Garden Collaboration

The prestigious retail, outdoor living and community development at Quintain’s Wembley Park continues to expand and impress.  The E03 Podium project is due for completion late in 2020 and MCM have been supporting Goddard (Landscape Contractors) Ltd since this phase commenced back in August 2019.  With the new 12,000 square metre roof garden taking shape, MCM have recently supplied British Standard certified topsoilsubsoil, washed sharp sand and their intensive lightweight substrate, delivered efficiently, regularly and swiftly in volume in bulk bags and loose in tippers and grabs.

As this headlining landscape and groundwork project marches on, MCM have continued to operate, always adhering to the latest site, social and safety distancing guidelines.

Lightweight roof substrate

Continuing the well-established relationship with their long-standing landscape client Goddards, MCM sourced and supplied materials with lighter saturated weight, an absolute prerequisite for podium landscapes constructed at height.  MCM intensive lightweight substrate is up to 25% lighter than regular British Standard topsoil and is rich in the appropriate nutrients and percolation.

Dependability, flexibility and reliability

As with any construction project, the contractor relies on the right product to arrive at the right time, to the right specification and to ease on-site manageability.  And here’s where MCM excel, with meticulous attention to the product specification, regular communication and adaptability to changing site conditions.  MCM also provided local holding areas to ensure swift reaction to site call-offs and side protection lorries for the bagged deliveries.

Ongoing support and management

The project continues and will do so until completion in 2021.  Feedback from both contractor and end client has been very positive, commending MCM on their service provision and professionalism throughout an often complex and intricate construction process.
