Mariners Green for Newport City Council

Mariners Green – Pillgwenlly Regeneration Project for Newport City Council

As part of the first phase of Newport City Council’s Pillgwenlly Regeneration Project, Speedwall Limited were commissioned to provide flower planters in the re-development of Mariners Green (formerly called Gilligan’s island) at the bottom end of Commercial Road, Newport.

This underutilised are of Newport needed to be revived and transformed into an attractive feature and become a special public space. 

Speedbuild provided a cost efficient solution by applying their proven unique patented ‘stone faced’ ICF prefabricated panels to create an attractive collection of real stone flower planters – with fantastic results within a few days.

The speed of application of the product certainly stood out for me

This particular installation was interesting as the weather during the period of building work was extremely bad, with heavy rain, winds, etc. Due to the design and installation techniques of the Speedbuild product, the planters were still installed, even in those adverse conditions – where normally conventional building work could not be carried out.

Ian Carter, Pillgwenlly Regeneration Manager for Newport City Council, stated, “The planters you produced looked fantastic and with the area complete they act as a frame to what will hopefully become an extremely important public space in Newport’s future.”

He continued, “The speed of application of the product is something that certainly stood out for me with the area being transformed in a matter of days. I look forward to exploring further opportunities to utilise your product in the future”
