Alitex tradestand RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Alitex contacted us as they wished to use our bee bricks on the bases of their modern victorian glasshouses.
Specifically Alitex were building a stand at RHS Chelsea Flower Show and wished to incorporate the bee brick within the build. We were delighted to work with a company with such a great reputation and who have partnered with prestigious names like the National Trust and The Royal Botanic Gardens. Find out more about the show here.
The build demonstrated another great way that the bee brick can be implemented within the garden.
Point 23. Newquay. Cornwall. UK.
Point 23 is a stunning residential development on the North Cornish Coast.
Set in an idyllic location, a stones throw from the waters edge, architect Jeb Beresford is creating a unique property designed to complement its environment, using copper cladding and natural curved shapes. Alongside solar panels and a sedum roof, Point 23 is also utilising the bee brick. 10 bricks will be built into a wall which curves through the property at roof height, their placement next to the sedum roof meaning there will be an instant source of vegetation to encourage solitary bees.
Newquay Orchard. Newquay. Cornwall. UK.
Newquay Orchard is an ambitious community interest project in Newquay, Cornwall. Built around creating a rural escape in an urban setting, the project is committed to working towards a more environmentally conscious and sustainable community.
The project involves the creation of a traditional, organic orchard, community growing space, a polytunnel and sensory garden, two amphitheatres and a community building. Newquay Orchard will be using a number of bee bricks in the construction of the amphitheatre and also plan to implement further bricks within a limestone wall, which will run alongside the orchard. The use of bee bricks will work alongside the other measures Newquay Orchard are taking to increase biodiversity.
