Landform Ltd has teamed up with Johnsons of Whixley Ltd. This is to complete the soft landscape contract for the new hospital and cancer treatment centre in Aberdeen, Scotland.
The new ‘Baird Family Hospital’ will replace the existing ageing Aberdeen Maternity Hospital.
Landform Ltd is working through main contractor Graham Construction. It secured the soft landscape works and a new pedestrian steel and timber bridge.
Landform Ltd works with Johnsons of Whixley on a regular basis and were chosen to supply 1000’s of plants for the project.
Plants supplied by Johnsons of Whixley Ltd have beautified the grounds at the new hospital and centre. Tree varieties supplied include Betula Jacquemontii, Magnolia ‘Galaxy’, Magnolia ‘Sundew’ and Prunus ‘Cheal’s Weeping’.
Shrubs include 100’s of Euonymus fort. ‘Emerald Gaiety’, Lavandula angustifolia, Sarcococca humilis, Hebe ‘Sapphire’, 800 Calluna vulgaris varieties and over 400 Vinca minor ‘Atropurpurea’.
Landform Ltd’s Director, Jake Dickie said: “It’s vital our suppliers match our quality standards, ethos and attention to detail.
“We have sourced plants through Johnsons of Whixley for many years now. Our relationship is built on their similar ethos to ours.
“This allowed us to complete our soft landscape project to the specification and quality standards set by our client.“
Johnsons of Whixley’s Marketing Manager, Eleanor Richardson said: “It’s great to see the progress of this new development. Landform’s landscaping works and our plants play 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.”
