The Wardian

The inspiration behind The Wardian design was inspired by the explorer, inventor and botanist, Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward.

A doctor by profession, Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward designed an hermetically sealed glass container, created for the transport of exotic plants (The Wardian Case).

This pioneering invention laid grounds for Ballymore’s ingenuity when designing The Wardian Towers.

As a project for Skyler Contracting, it proved a challenge due to the heights and coinciding with one of the wettest winters on record in the UK.

A fully cold applied system with tapered insulation was specified which leant itself to the vast number of complex details including an array of varying sized BMU plinths. With over 1,600sqm of roofing completed, Skyler Contracting were then tasked with the install for the Wardian Glass Case which house an array of rare and exotic plants.

This culminated in being a truly exceptional project, which Skyler Contracting were very proud to be associated with.
