Our living green wall systems continue to grow all over the U.S., including SoCa 2014!
EPT Design has specified 220 VGM modules to be installed June of 2014 at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Offices Antelope Valley. Thanks to Valley Crest, which we know will do another great installation of this product and to Instant Jungle for growing in the plant product.
Antelope Valley (named for the herds of Pronghorn that were found here in the 1830′s), is the gateway to the western Mojave Desert. The average temperature here is 61 deg, but that disguises lows down to 2 deg and highs up to 110 deg. It’s a dry heat, though, with low humidity year round. Due to the weather variance, this will be a challenging project and a testament to our 8″ deep VGM3-10 module . With the generous soil profile, root growth isn’t restricted to baffles or pockets, which will mean lower maintenance, less water usage and healthier plants.
Azalea South Gate is an exciting, one-of-a-kind project for the South Gate community of Los Angeles. When completed the project will include national anchor tenants, local retail, restaurants and several living walls! Specified by Conceptual Design & Planning Company , the project is to be installed in phases in conjunction with the overall construction by KPRS Builders. The VGM3-06 modules are being grown in (again!) at Instant Jungle with a spectacular plant palette chosen by the team at CDPC headed up by Jennifer Frederick. The grow-in will take 1-3 months in the modules before they are shipped individually to the job site where they will be assembled and hung.
We are particularly proud of this installation as the 32-acre project replaces a current vacant site with a modern shopping center. The final plans include water features, an open plaza for community gatherings, wi-fi, and incorporates green initiatives and environmentally-friendly products.
