Living wall installation at Manchester and Cheshire Construction HQ
- LivePanel PACK
- Location: Salford (Engeland)
- Dealer: Inleaf
Inleaf has recently installed two Mobilane Live Panel Pack living walls as part of Manchester and Cheshire Construction’s £500,000 office extension at their Salford headquarters.
Speaking after this installation — just one in a growing number of successful collaborations between the supplier and installer — Inleaf Director Daniel Atherton said: “It was great working with the team at MCC to help them bring biophilic design into their new office space.”
The Managing Director of MCC, David Lowe, also had nothing but praise for the completed project: “Due to the growth of our business, we had to create additional space for our employees. After consulting with our employees and with the help of our sustainability advisor, Martin Brown of Fairsnape, we decided to adopt a biophilic design approach. One of the first elements we decided on was the introduction of two living walls. It has now been several months since the project was completed, and our walls are blooming. Employees and visitors alike seem to really enjoy them, and it’s genuinely wonderful being able to bring the natural world into an office environment. Not only do they look great, but they’re helping improve the health and wellbeing of our employees.
What is biophilic design?
At Mobilane, we are great advocates of the philosophy that a greener workplace is a healthier, cleaner, and more natural workplace. Biophilic design supports this and encourages a mix of nature and the environment when considering urban and suburban developments, their construction, and their design. Nature should be at the core of our homes, workplaces, and learning spheres.
