64 SAFETY & SECURITY


It is thought that planting would integrate better with our monuments and historic architecture as seen temporarily on London Bridge following the vehicle attack in June 2017. The ‘mitigation planters’ separated the footpath from the six lanes of traffic that crosses the bridge, protecting city users.


Green spaces are vital for everyone, and we all feel the benefit. A beautifully designed green landscape combined with clever street furniture design offers not only a great use of space but creates the opportunity to add security measures with an additional aesthetic quality often missing in hard concrete design. Successful green areas and abundant planting can improve morale and productivity of city workers through psychological benefits, and far beyond.


For urban planning to be successful it is important that design, technology and security work hand in hand


For urban planning to be successful it is important that design, technology and security work hand in hand. Public safety is continual, the impact of terrorist threats constant. So the need to design public spaces in order to reduce this risk and to minimise the impact of vehicular attacks is at the forefront. Street furniture has to be designed to serve all purposes. Both


protection and aesthetics are key. Responding to this demand, we designed a flexible, modular retaining wall system for creating raised planting schemes in our urban and city environment. Designed for easy installation, the modules are intended for all areas of our cityscape, from courtyards to roads and shopping areas to recreational spaces.


A reinforced structure designed for ‘Hostile Vehicle Mitigation can offer both security and protection to pedestrians and infrastructure without compromising the aesthetic value of a residential or commercial area. It is possible to secure our cityscapes without sacrificing both the beauty and identity of our urban environment.


The standard system has recently been utilised in expanding outdoor spaces for hospitality establishments along Elizabeth Street in Victoria, Central London. The planters were specified to provide a contained sense of calm amidst the bustling surroundings, maintaining the street’s ‘village’ ambience.
