Thermoflor helps to extend three UK garden centre sites

Dutch greenhouse specialist constructor Thermoflor is making progress on two UK garden centre projects.

At Haskins Roundstone in Dorset, a new 4,000sq m centre will be fitted with Open Sky technology. The old garden centre will be dismantled to create space for a car park. Construction began in June and the opening is scheduled for March 2012. The architect is Roberts Limbrick Architects of Gloucester.

Thermoflor is also building a retail facility of 3,000sq m at Longacres Nursery in Surrey in collaboration with Vear Construction. Other partners are PLUM architects, Bourne and LCE.

Meanwhile, work finished this autumn at Haskins West End garden centre, where three existing spans were extended. The restaurant was modernised and increased to seat 500. The architect was HPW Partnership.
