Awarded Contract for New Palomar Hospital
San Diego, Calif. May 20, 2011 – Benchmark Landscape, an industry- leading commercial landscape installation and maintenance company based in San Diego, is pleased to announce the award of a $3 million contract with Palomar Pomerado Health. Benchmark will install new landscaping at the Palomar Medical Center West in Escondido, Calif.. Various elements such as rock walls, monuments, open space gathering areas, healing gardens and more will be built on the medical center grounds. Use of rocks found on site and the installation of bioswales, which are designed to filter surface runoff, are just two of the ways this site will be environmentally-friendly. Slated to be completed in Spring 2012, the hospital’s sustainable landscape will include California native plant material, compatible with the California-friendly theme at the property. Spurlock Poirier is the landscape architect, and the general contractor is DPR Construction.
“We are very proud to be selected to install the landscaping at Palomar Hospital,” said Craig Mohns, Vice President for Benchmark Landscape. “Our talented staff will not only produce a beautiful end product that all patrons will enjoy, but will be using sustainable building practices throughout the installation process.”
