The newly opened £22m luxury Radisson Blu Hotel at East Midlands Airport is the first building in the United Kingdom to feature an Indoor Living Wall.

The living wall looks great. Visitors love it and we’ve had nothing but positive comments

The stunning living wall, which measures 10sqm and features a range of indoor plants, greets visitors at the check-in desk at main reception.

The LivePanel Indoor system supplied by Mobilane is suitable for a wide range of building types, including offices and call centres, hotels, leisure centres, health centres and gyms, retail and business centres. The system is easy to install and requires no building alteration work prior to installation. All that’s needed is a plain wall, suitable lighting and an electric power socket. A basic LivePanel Indoor system can be installed in a single morning. The system features a built-in computerised irrigation system and specially developed nutritionally balanced minerals substrate to support vegetation.

Installation of the living wall at the Radisson Blu hotel was completed in a single day by Hedera Screens of Derbyshire. The only preparatory work needed was the fitting of growing lights prior to installation. The plants were grown offsite by Mobilane and delivered ready for installation.

The wall has been greeted with delight by management and visitors alike, as Daniel Kean, General Manager explains: “The living wall looks great. Visitors love it and we’ve had nothing but positive comments.”
