An exciting transformation has been completed at the Marlow site of Hillier Garden Centres. Acquired in June 2019 following the Wyevale closures, the family group has completed extensive internal and external improvements that provide a comfortable and rewarding shopping experience for visitors.
Customers are now greeted by an impressive and welcoming glulam timber canopy provided by industry construction specialists Fordingbridge. The canopy provides a 12m clear span, enabling a more open layout that makes it it even easier for shoppers to find the right plants for their garden – all protected from inclement weather as autumn sets in.
“We are delighted to be working again with the Hillier family following their purchase of the site,” said Stephen Toone, Fordingbridge’s Managing Director. “We have enjoyed a fabulous working relationship for a number of years and are very pleased to have been involved in this project from the outset. Our ethos is to help from a concept stage and assist at every step of the project.
“With a refurbishment scheme such as this, it is incredibly satisfying to see the completed transformation. What was previously a tired site is now completely refreshed and we are delighted to be a part of that.”
The significant retail area with an overall length of almost 65m under the canopy is covered by Fordingbridge’s exclusive Opal 60 fabric, a durable roofing fabric specifically designed to allow optimal light transmission, ensuring a bright welcome for visitors as they journey through the new plant area and beyond into the freshly refurbished store.
With no live Glee this year, Fordingbridge is inviting interested parties to view its nationwide portfolio of canopies and covered walkways in person. If you would like to know more, click here to contact the company or here to email. You can also phone them on 01243 55 44 55.
