Pioneering Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) for 40 Years


Regent Street, London

Project Overview

Platipus were approached by Michael Gargan, from Street Tree Limited, to provide a bespoke anchoring solution for a variety of semi-mature trees. These trees were to be installed into special planters as part of a greening program by the Crown Estate. Designed by Chris Stanton from BDP, the trees would need to be anchored to the service below the planters.

Due to the positioning of the trees in a busy pedestrian environment, an additional leg to the tree anchoring system was added to ensure the safety of the tree.

The 4-Leg system was chosen as the most effective solution for the project. The results were excellent and Platipus are thrilled to have been involved in this amazing project.
