St Michael's Hospice in Hereford is a charitable organisation that offers palliative care in an in-patients and outpatients capacity to the local community, county and beyond.

Using their expertise, architects Architype, Churchman Landscape Architects and construction company Speller Metcalfe worked with St Michaels Hospice to produce a sustainable ‘landmark design’ for future healthcare environments.

Benchmark was chosen by Churchman Landscape Architects to provide outdoor benches for the project, and worked with Speller Metcalfe to manufacture and supply Wales & Wales Norfolk and Chico benches for the hospice gardens.

The benches have backrests and armrests, and are manufactured in a combination of FSC European oak, powder coated cast aluminium and stainless steel. Special concealed stainless steel security rods anchor the benches to the ground.

Good design and the use of high quality materials along with Benchmark's 5-year guarantee ensures that the benches will give many years service in the outdoor environment.
