The Chubu Electric Power Wild Garden Project, situated alongside Nagoya Port, comprised the creation of a peaceful garden containing feature designs from eminent garden designers mixing structure alongside wilder forms and the construction of a larger summer house.   The approximate value of the stone contract was 10 million Yen.

Albion Stone entered into discussions with the Unison Corporation for the supply of English Limestone for the structural parts of the Chubu Electric Wild Flower Garden project.

The brief for the garden was for a crazy paving effect utilising Limestone that would be durable and safe in use as well as offering excellent light reflecting qualities.

Albion Stone supplied approximately 500 square metres of Bowers Whitbed for paving. The Official opening of the Chubu Electric Wild Flower Garden was April 2002.

Mr Harada of the Unison Corporation commented,

'€œI have been very pleased with the Wild Garden project and have worked closely with Albion Stone to ensure the materials received were the best quality.   We have worked well together from the start of the project with the assistance of the British High Commission in Japan. I look forward to working together again soon'€.

Mrs Tsukatani of the British Consulate General in Japan said,

'€œWe have been pursuing Chubu Electric Power'€™s Wildflower Garden Project for the last two years to secure British materials; we were very pleased Albion'€™s Portland Stone was selected and were impressed by their marketing efforts in Japan and their assistance throughout the project'€.
