RHS Garden Wisley: Growing Inspiring Places
Located in the heart of the spectacular RHS Garden Wisley, the new National Centre for Horticultural Science and Learning is taking shape. Fantastic drone imagery by RHS/Adam Alexander (copyright RHS) provides an unrivalled bird’s eye view of the works so far.
Starting on site a little over 6 months ago the project reached an important milestone in September 2019 with the completion of the steel frame. This was celebrated with a final bolt topping out event joined by the project team as well as around 100 people including key donors and supporters.
The new building, opening in 2021, will provide a ground-breaking centre for horticultural science, research and learning. For the first time it will allow the RHS to showcase an exceptional collection of books and artefacts, inspiring and educating the next generation of horticulturists. The new centre will also feature two accessible learning studios and a teaching garden, as well as a main public atrium at its core, to engage visitors of all ages.
The next key milestone is in Spring 2020, which will see the building watertight to allow for the internal fit-out to commence. Synergy will keep you updated with this project as it progresses.
