Soft landscape works begin at Royal Bournemouth Hospital

Fulfilling a 15-week soft landscape delivery and a 24-month maintenance programme, the Goddards Landscape teams will be active on site at Royal Bournemouth Hospital from May 2024.  The soft landscape works package forms part of the IHP joint venture between Sir Robert McAlpine and Vinci Construction.

Soft landscape delivery

Placing topsoil and subsoil, supplying and planting multi-stem trees and specimen shrubs, and mulching, the landscape will create a welcoming swathe of natural planting around the new Main Entrance (MEA) and Emergency Centre (WCEC).

The Beach Building

Part of the £250 million shake-up of healthcare provisions in East Dorset, the main entrance to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital has been demolished to make way for the new building. Part of the new building, called The Beach, the main entrance and emergency centre will see the switch of the Accident and Emergency Unit from Poole to Bournemouth.

The development represents the largest health service investment in Dorset for more than 30 years.  Both sites will be open in 2024.
