Albany Health Campus, New hospital construction

Particularities

6,000 sqm of landscape design and implement.

The gardens within and around a hospital demand special requirements. Pollination and attraction of bees is unpreferred, while calming scents and diversity of colours, shape and movement within the foliage is desirable.

Hardiness and low maintenance has been part of the scope.

The landscaping includes 6 Court Yards, recreational areas, paving and retaining walls, furniture, artwork and shade sails.

Phases

The whole landscaping implement is running over a 6 months period, working collateral with many other sub contractors.

Site preparing earthworks as well as storm water sewerage, main reticulation ring and brick works for retaining walls were the focus of phase 1. Simultanualsy, planting in some specific areas has been installed early, due to imparative limits regarding the accessability of several court yards and areas later on.
