One of our favorite projects ever stemmed from installing the living wall on the fifth floor of the new Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL) downtown. We installed the original living wall in January 2011 and it got rave reviews. Here’s what it looked like then:
Because the client was so pleased with our diligent, detail-oriented performance (and our tidiness too), we also got the contract to install all of the built in planters on the fifth and eighth floors (not quite a green roof), ground level and the interior atrium. We performed maintenance for the first year, and then due to budget constraints, the school decided to take the service and care of their plants in-house.
After several years of maintaining the living wall, planters and interiors themselves, they weren’t looking as good as they once did. These are complex systems and it’s not fair to expect people who aren’t trained to take care of them to keep them healthy.
Recently, the new owner of the law school building contacted us and asked us to bring their living wall and all of their plants back to life. A very satisfying and complimentary request! We were happy to do it, and we recently finished the refurbishing work. Take a look, we think you’ll like the results as much as we do.
