Overview 

We teamed up with Aberdeen based landscapers, Landform Ltd to supply plants to a new £163,7 million pound hospital and cancer treatment centre in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The Challenge 

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 was enlisted by the main contractor, Graham Construction to provide the soft landscaping and manufacturing of the new hospital.

The solution

Landform Ltd manufactured and installed all stainless steel railings, resin bound paths, timber crib support walks, 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 Result 

The new hospital and centre is now complete and will provide quality care to those in need in the Aberdeen and surrounding areas with high quality, modern facilities.

Our plant supply played an essential part of the visual aesthetics of the hospital centre and we hope the plants are enjoyed by staff and visitors for many years to come.

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.
