RHS Harlow Carr retail section to be renovated

In 2004, Smiemans Projecten built a greenhouse for plant sale at the beautiful RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate (UK). Recently, Smiemans has been commissioned by the RHS to renovate the garden centre. It will be executed this spring.

At the time, it was built using laminated safety glass. In view of the new safety requirements for public areas, the glass on the roof will be replaced with 16 mm transparent polycarbonate. This will provide a new and modern look, better insulation and therefore better climate resistance and safety for the future.

This approach will also change the internal layout. The creation of a covered area between the warm department and the outdoor sales area will create a better transition. As a result, this canopy will provide more comfort for the shopping public.

RHS stands for the Royal Horticultural Society, a non-profit organisation established to promote gardening in the UK and beyond. Across five RHS gardens, the society welcomes more than three million visitors each year to enjoy over 34,000 different cultivated plants. Events such as the world famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show, other national shows, schools and community work, and partnerships such as Britain in Bloom, all spread the shared joy of gardening to wide-reaching audiences. All of this work is centred on a charitable core – to encourage and improve the science, art and practice of horticulture and to share the love of gardening and the positive benefits it brings.

Smiemans Projecten, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, was also commissioned by the RHS in 2007 to build ‘The Glasshouse’ and the Clore Learning zone at RHS Garden Wisley, which was opened by the late Queen Elizabeth II.
