City-Park 1, Aberdeen
A major office facility developed for the Wood Group on the edge of an existing industrial estate.
Due to the significant size of the footprint required for this development, space for planting was severely restricted. HLA worked closely with Michael Laird Architects to maximise the impact of planting in key locations and resolve the hard landscape detailing problems associated with extending the basement space beyond the edges of the building. HLA played a lead role in addressing the problem of excess spoil, designing significant landform clothed with native planting to integrate the development with an adjacent country park.
