Online PR News – 24-September-2012 –Chichester, UK (13th September, 2012) – ANS Group Europe, leading designers of indoor and outdoor living walls, has installed a living wall at Kent University with great success and acclaim.
ANS Group Europe’s new living wall is the first to be installed at a university, and measures 40m2 in size. The wall is attached to the external side of Kent University’s refurbished lecture theatre and seminar rooms, uniting three styles of building – all of which are architecturally different – with natural greening. Planting was carefully selected to attract wildlife to the area (such as bees, butterflies, birds and more) whilst providing a calming and tranquil atmosphere.
This living wall has completely revitalised the oldest building of the three, designed and built in the 1980s, and transformed it into an eye-catching landmark. Both university staff and students have responded to the wall with great enthusiasm, enjoying the unique aesthetic it brings as well as the added natural touch it brings to the campus.
A representative of Kent University said: “We are delighted with the work ANS Group Europe has done, as are our visitors. The living wall has brought a unique touch to the campus, and we are all looking forward to seeing it mature over the coming year, with a view to installing more across the site.”
Joel Nash, Marketing Manager of ANS Group Europe, said: “Undertaking this project was incredibly exciting, as it allowed us to install the first living wall on a UK university campus. As with all of our projects, we took great care to ensure the living wall not only suited its location, but also enhanced it, which this certainly does. We’re thrilled everyone at Kent University is so happy with it, and hope to add more to their campus in the near future.”
