Nurture Landscapes Triple BALI Brings Steve Sixth Success


Nurture Landscapes is delighted to have won three 2016 BALI National Landscape awards:

Grounds Maintenance – Limited Public Access for Farnborough Business Park, Interior Landscape – Maintenance for the Swiss Re offices in London (The Gherkin) and the third for Employer Excellence.

This takes Nurture Contracts Manager, Steve Packman’s personal tally to an amazing six BALI awards in total.

A static team of five full time gardeners maintain the 125 acre Farnborough Business Park which comprises an attractive mix of hard and soft landscaping, extensive hedgerows and a mix of shrubs and seasonal planting. With its wide range of occupiers and a renowned heritage quarter with listed buildings, the park encourages public access to many events, keeping Nurture’s team busy all year round. In 2016 the park also achieved the Green Flag Award®, the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces.

Commenting on the award, Steve said: “It has been a great year for me personally, Nurture and our clients. None of this would have been achieved without the exceptional teamwork of all our staff who give great customer service, day after day.”

The park is managed by Ashdown Phillips and Paul Robins, Facilities Services Director, commented: “The award is testament to the “One team” approach we have at Farnborough Business Park. Nurture, like all of our suppliers on site, work interdependently with us to ensure that we continually deliver a high quality environment for all of our tenants and occupiers to enjoy”.

Four of Steve’s six BALI awards have been won over the last six years and demonstrate the range of expertise across the company. They include private residences, educational and research facilities, conference centres and business parks.

Peter Fane, Managing Director of Nurture Landscapes, added: “Steve started working with me aged 20 as a Head Gardener at our previous business. Through his continuous hard work and commitment, he has developed into a top rate Contracts Manager. I’m sure that there are many more awards to follow.”
