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


One Tower Bridge, London – UK

Platipus Anchors - Flag of UK

Project Overview

One Tower Bridge is a prestigious flagship project by Berkeley Homes, offering a stunning mixed-use development directly adjacent to Tower Bridge, one of London’s most iconic landmarks. The project was multi-phased and logistically challenging as cranes were required to lift and plant mature trees at both ground and podium level.

All landscaping and external works were delivered by Maylim who were awarded the coveted ‘Grand Award’ at the 2017 BALI National Landscape Awards. The company’s attention to detail was highlighted throughout this high pressure project and their ability to overcome huge challenges was key to their award success. Scotscape carried out the soft landscaping over a 27 month period. The projects urban environment together with the presence of buried services meant that a combination of Platipus D-MAN® and Deadman Fixing Systems with Plati-Mat were chosen for their high quality and reliability, providing unrivalled stability to all of the trees. The completed gardens now offer beautiful and relaxing surroundings and Platipus are proud to have been the preferred supplier for all tree anchoring systems on the project.
