Quadron Services Ltd, the green space management company based at Weston-super-Mare in Somerset were the principal winners of two accolades at the BALI Awards held in the Great Room at the Grosvenor Hotel in London in December.
One of these accolades that the Quadron team received was the award for the best Domestic or Commercial Grounds Maintenance contract under £50,000 for their work maintaining the Kyoto and Fukushima Garden in Holland Park.
This award category was sponsored by Ransomes Jacobsen. Quadron's second principal award was for their maintenance of Burgess Park in Southwark.
The Kyoto Garden was opened in 1992 and was a co-operative project between the Royal borough of Kensington and the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce in Japan.
The new Fukushima extension was created in the summer of 2012 to commemorate the aid Britain provided to Japan following the nuclear disaster suffered by the prefecture.
Quadron has been responsible for the maintenance of the garden since 2003, which demands an extremely high level of attention to detail and the adoption of traditional Japanese maintenance practices, wherever possible.
Ian Fleming, Holland Park's Head Gardener commented, "The Kyoto and Fukushima gardeners and I are incredibly pleased and proud of our Principal Award sponsored by Ransomes jacobsen; it feels like our hard work has really paid off.
Working in the Kyoto and Fukushima Garden has presented us with many opportunities, but this has been one of the greatest."
Quadron Services scooped two Principal Awards at the BALI event and Clive Ivil, Quadron Services' Managing Director, added,
"We are delighted to have received two Principal Awards, which are a real accolade for Quadron and its staff. Full credit must go to the teams who maintain the winning schemes on a daily basis with such passion and enthusiasm.
The teams have cultivated excellent relationships with their clients and have an intrinsic understanding of their specific requirements. I am extremely proud of our achievements this year and it is fantastic to be able to end 2013 on such a high note."
