Nestle Water Bottling Plant

As lead landscape architects AXIS helped Nestlé secure planning permission for a new bottling plant for its Buxton Natural Mineral Water. The 17 acre greenfield site to the North East of Buxton was officially opened in march 2013 by Nestlé S.A. CEO, Paul Bulcke and Nestlé Waters CEO, John J Harris with Environment Minister Lord de Mauley. The £35m development uses Derbyshire dry stone walls to reinstate historic field patterns on one side of the building and on the  other contemporary dry stone walls and gabions. Surrounded by the Peak District National Park the undulating and sinuous landscape is reflected in Derbyshire stone filled gabions and wildflower terracing and echoed in the building design. Landform is creatively used to help screen the visitor and staff car parking from the adjacent A6.
