Biggest garden centre in Denmark almost complete

by | Dec 16, 2020 | Chains, News | 0 comments

Completion of the 12,000 m2 garden centre for Plantorama is in sight. Smiemans Projecten started this spring with this project in the city of Tilst.

A new 9,000 m2 garden centre is also being built in Hørsholm for the garden centre chain. Despite the pandemic, Smiemans has succeeded in realising both locations in around eight months.

Being responsible for the environment plays a major role at both garden centres. In addition to the standard LED lighting, green roofs and PV panels, Smiemans has developed special wide rain gutters to collect as much rainwater as possible and prevent damage during heavy rainfall/ a rain storm. Plantorama uses this rainwater for the irrigation of its plants.

In addition to the extensive range of products, there is also a special animal department for visitors. And while children are playing in Playland, customers can drink or eat something in the restaurant. “We think it is important that customers can enjoy themselves and relax with a cup of coffee while they are with us. It should be part of the experience. We are specialists in creating atmosphere and experience,” says Peter Vang Christensen, owner of the Plantorama garden centre chain.

At this moment, three different types of screening are being installed in Tilst; a Christmas cloth, bird netting and a roller  shading cloth. Plantorama’s 13th garden centre in Hørsholm is also nearing completion. Smiemans started construction there in July. Both locations will open their doors in the spring of 2021.
