As part of the ongoing redevelopment of The Wildside Centre and the surrounding area, Stratherrick & Foyers Community Trust are looking for contractors who are able to assist with the landscaping of the outdoor space.

This will be done in two phases, with Phase 1 focussing on the path surrounding the building.  The focus of this Phase is:

  • To upgrade the path around the Wildside building and extend it to the marquee entrance, making it accessible to all abilities and users (including wheelchairs).
  • To incorporate ramps to fire exits into the lounge and lecture theatre and openings onto potential decked area at the rear of the land.
  • Following consultation with the project team, our preferred option for path material is timber, as it is in keeping with the landscape and likely to be the most cost-effective.
