Deerness Fencing & Landscaping were contracted to supply, install and construct planting beds, turfing and seeding, planting of 37,000 shrubs and 550 trees and hedge plants. Weirs, waterfalls, footpaths, granite cube planters, golden gravel footpaths, stone benches, gabion baskets, and a crazy golf course were also constructed.
The BREEAM ratings on all of the buildings are ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very Good.’ Environmentally-friendly features of the development include a Sustainable Urban Drainage System, recycling of rainwater from roofs, a comprehensive green transport plan, 240m long “Brise Soleil” to south elevations and dedicated recycling areas. All building materials were locally sourced where possible.
Deerness delivered a fantastic looking project to a tight time frame. We used Deerness out of region because of past performance and the comfort that they would deliver. They were not the cheapest contractor.
The resident Contracts Manager was proactive and dynamic in his approach to the scheme.
The Project won the RICS regeneration award and was highly commended at the National BALI awards. A scheme for all parties to be proud of.- Paul Dodsworth, Projects Director: Bowmer & Kirkland
