P Casey Ltd and Olympic Park landscapers recognised at the 2012 BALI National Landscape Awards

Today saw the prestigious BALI National Landscape Awards take place at the Grosvenor House in London.

Held annually to recognise excellence in landscape design, construction and maintenance by members of the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI), the awards were hosted by BBC presenter and newsreader Huw Edwards and attended by over 700 guests.

The Grand Award went to Lancashire based BALI contractor P Casey (Land Reclamation) Ltd for the extensive refurbishment of two historic
parks in the centre of Lichfield as part of Lichfield District Council’s Strategic Plan.

The adjudication panel commented, “The care and attention to the historic detail undertaken on this project was truly outstanding.  The result is an outstanding example of a revitalised green city space with social improvement and involvement for all age groups and backgrounds at its core.”

The BALI 40th Anniversary Commemorative Award for Outstanding British Landscaping Excellence went jointly to BALI contractors Frosts Landscape Construction, Gavin Jones, White Horse Contractors and Willerby Landscapes for their collaboration on the Queen
Elizabeth Olympic Park. It was the unanimous opinion of the BALI judges that, because of the uniqueness and scale of this scheme and its impact on a global audience in BALI’s 40th anniversary year, the contractors be recognised with this special, one-off, award.

BALI’s chosen charities – Perennial and the BALI Chalk Fund, two industry charities that exist solely to support those working across the horticulture and landscape sectors – benefitted from a collection at the Awards Ceremony. The BALI Chalk Fund supports education and training in the landscape industry and Perennial provides support and advice to those working in the industry, and their families, at times of crisis.
