Christchurch City Council
Inscape’s Christchurch plant hire branch enjoyed working in the Christchurch City Council Building, which has a Six Green Star rating, making it New Zealand’s greenest building. The Council had a strong focus on improving indoor air quality, which is reflected in the large number of indoor plants they requested. Inscape had the privilege of installing thousands of indoor plants into the retro-fitted building, which they service and maintain on a weekly basis.
The open plan offices are divided by tambours that are planted with indoor plants, which provide staff with privacy, while creating a relaxed atmosphere. Break out areas are converted into lush paradises with tall palms and climbing vines which encompass seating spaces.
A green wall has even been included, which is accessible for the general public to see. This artistic take on indoor plants conveys how the modern world has embraced the need for interior plant design. Green walls are a fantastic solution for adding greenery when space is limited or to add a statement piece to create “wow” factor.
Inscape supplies the indoor plants for all the Westpac banks nationwide, including their head office in Auckland, which Inscape’s Auckland plant hire branch takes sole care of. Like the Christchurch City Council building, the Westpac Head Office is a Green Star building, with a strong focus on improving indoor environment quality. Inscape have installed nearly 2,000 indoor plants into Westpac’s Green Star building, turning this workplace into an enjoyable sanctuary which is a pleasure to work in.
The Westpac Head Office has a unique design, with each floor being themed in accordance with a natural New Zealand environment, including foreshore, forest and high country. Inscape’s hire plants have been carefully selected to match the theme on each floor.
Statistics New Zealand
Statistics New Zealand is a government department which supplies New Zealand with statistical information to aid in the country’s growth and prosperity. Inscape’s Wellington plant hire branch has recently installed over 180 indoor plants into Statistics New Zealand’s head office in Wellington. These hire plants are in a combination of free-standing planters, provided by inscape, and existing in-built containers.
The majority of the indoor plants installed have low water requirements, keeping the cost of servicing at a minimum. Inscape have also used a large number of Sansevieria, which are renown for being highly efficient at cleansing impurities from indoor air and therefore improving indoor environmental quality.
Exterior Landscape Portfolio
Inscape also contributes to Green Star buildings through exterior landscape maintenance, including green roofs.
The Parc is arguably one of Auckland’s top apartment developments and has been built to a five star luxury standard. The apartments surround an exclusive 3,500m² private park, a central oval shaped lawn like a village green ringed by exotic cherry trees and roses, as well as citrus trees with dense flower beds. What’s more is that this private park is in fact a roof top garden.
This beautiful exterior landscape sits above a car park building, changing what could be an eyesore into a beautiful green space that is also environmentally friendly.
Inscape pride themselves on ensuring that this exterior landscape is maintained to an exceptional standard.
Inscape has maintained both Quay West’s interior plants and their roof top garden since 2003. When inscape took over this site plants were dying and diseased, the irrigation was not working and the definitions of the stone borders were less than desired. Inscape has made a dramatic improvement to this unique Auckland CBD roof top garden with additional plants and increased stone volume, raising this garden to inscape’s high standards. The roof top garden, which can be found on level five, is accessible via a number of private rooms as well as a conference room. The different raised planter beds represent the islands in the Hauraki Gulf, while the blue paving line symbolises the meridian line. The “islands” include plants such as Poor Knight’s Lilies, Pohutakawa trees and mondo grass. Each planter bed is marked by a wavy border of dark pebble, surrounded by white crushed stone. Found amongst these “islands” is a secluded gazebo for people to sit in and relax. This garden is a little piece of Eden for people in the central city to escape and be transported.
