Forres and Bridport garden centres to be extended with Smiemans and Malcolm Scott

Today at the Glee trade show, Peter Wilson, owner of Mackenzie & Cruickshank signed a contract with Jeroen Smiemans, chief executive of Smiemans Projecten for the engineering of the extension of the existing garden centre in Forres, Scotland.


The extension comprises two structures, one being a 620m2 large open sided canopy as an extension to the outdoor sales, and the other is a 400m2 curved glasshouse (the HighLight type) where most of the outdoor plants will be sold. The design is made by Architect Malcolm Scott Consultants and the main contractor of the project is AJ Engineering. The planned opening is spring 2016.

Smiemans is also building Groves Bridport's restaurant and extended retail area, designed by Malcolm Scott.
