The New Birmingham Library, The Co-operative head office in Manchester, and St Antony’s College, Oxford, were all selected by judges at the BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries) National Landscape Awards 2013 for their excellence and quality.
Boningale worked with contractor MITIE Landscapes to supply a large selection of feature plants for the new Co-operative head office in Angel Square, Manchester, which is said to be the most environmentally friendly building in the world.
Awarding the scheme the prize for Interior Landscape (installation only) award, judges said the plants were healthy and well maintained. “This is an impressive installation,” they added.
Judges were also impressed with the quality of the planting and design at the new £188.8 million New Library of Birmingham, which was awarded the prize for Green Roof Installations and Roof Gardens. Boningale supplied Frosts Landscape Construction with 10,000 grown-to-order plants for the library’s breathtaking roof terraces and gardens.
The nursery was also cited in the prize awarded to St Antony’s College Oxford for the Hard Landscape Construction (under £300,000) award, led by Blakedown Landscapes.
Frank Sandford, Sales Director at Boningale Nurseries, said: “The BALIs recognise excellence and professionalism in the industry so we are naturally thrilled to have played a part in these three projects that have been selected by the judges.”
