New roof, climate system and air vents

Garden centre chain Van Hage is one of the most famous and oldest in England, they have three locations. A major renovation is planned for the 30-year-old "Great Amwell" location. More than 3,000 mof the flagship store for Van Hage will get a new roof and air vents. In addition to renovating the roof and air vents, the entire roof screening installation will also be replaced. A computer system will also be installed to optimize the internal climate, controlling the roof vents, shading and heating systems.

Garden centre remains open during renovation

CEO John Carver of Van Hage Garden Centres is tackling the renovation energetically. The garden centre will continue to trade from Ware (UK) during the renovation, with minimal disruption to their customers. The first phase of this renovation took place in August 2019. The second part of the roof will be replaced at the beginning of 2021.

Need more than a renovation?

We do more than renovating - take a look at their other garden centre. We built for Van Hage Petersborough. With its huge glass atrium, cedar panelling and green steel it will definitely leave a lasting memory with anybody who visits.

The first renovation was ahead of schedule. The cooperation and communication with Smiemans Projecten was excellent. We are looking forward to the next phase of the renovation.
