Aberdeen based landscapers, Landform Ltd, recently teamed up with us to supply plants and complete the soft landscape contract element of the new £163.7 million pound hospital and cancer treatment centre in Aberdeen, Scotland.
The new ‘Baird Family Hospital’ will replace the existing ageing Aberdeen Maternity Hospital with additional services, including breast and gynaecology services.
The new ‘ANCHOR centre’ is the first of it’s kind in Scotland providing modern and high-quality accommodation for the delivery of co-ordinated Oncology and Haematology day patient and outpatient services.
Landform Ltd working through main contractor Graham Construction secured the soft landscape works, manufactured and installed all stainless steel railings, resin bound paths, timber crib support walls, wildflower areas and a new pedestrian steel and timber bridge.
Plants supplied by Johnsons have beautified the grounds at the new hospital and centre with tree varieties supplied including Betula Jacquemontii, Magnolia ‘Galaxy’, Magnolia ‘Sundew’ and Prunus 'Cheal's Weeping'. Shrubs included 100’s of Euonymus fort. 'Emerald Gaiety', Lavandula angustifolia, Sarcococca humilis, Hebe ‘Sapphire’, 800 Calluna vulgaris varieties and over 400 Vinca minor ‘Atropurpurea’.
The new hospital and centre will help provide quality care to those in need in the Aberdeen and surrounding areas with high quality, modern facilities.
Landform Ltd’s Director, Jake Dickie said: “As a premium contractor in all sectors we work in it is vital our suppliers match our quality standards, ethos and attention to detail. We have sourced our plant material through Johnsons of Whixley for many years now and our relationship has been built on their similar ethos to ours. From their customer service, plant sourcing, supply and premium delivery service direct to site, this enabled us to complete our soft landscape project to the specification and quality standards set out by our client. “
It’s great to see the progress of this new development, Landforms landscaping works and our plant supply plays an essential part in the visual aesthetics of the hospital and centre… We hope the plants are enjoyed by the staff and visitors for many years to come. We look forward to seeing the project completed later next year.
This isn't the first hospital we have supplied in recent years, in 2017 we supplied Maggie's Centre in Oldham with herbaceous, trees and screening plants and most recently we helped turn 'Donaldson's a former hospital into luxury apartments.
