The Planting Plan Conceived by Trevor Edwards working with Consarc Conservation Architects in 2010 and Planted in April 2011 by Dalzell Landscapes Ltd - the Planting around the offices is maturing nicely!

The concept of only using one plant (Griselinia) was for the planing NOT to detract from the hansom architecture of the building but rather to that the building "should appear to float on a SEA of Green".

History of the Belfast Harbour Commissioners Office

The first section of the building, designed by the Commissioners’ engineer George Smith was opened in 1854 and erected at a cost of £8,000. A subsequent extension, by the celebrated Belfast architect William Henry Lynn, was completed in 1895 at a cost of £14,349. The style of architecture reflects that of an Italian palazzo.
