Work details

The project is to re-energise the campus heart and cultivate a safe and inviting, lifelong learning environment.  It involves the removal of the existing landscape in order to provide a variety of different informal learning and gathering spaces.

The works will remove the existing paving with a formed pedestrian access with shaded trees and arbour structures. This will not only improve the amenity of the area but also engage staff and students with built study environments. The landscape focus will be on the regional vegetation and contribute to course outcomes by promoting and demonstrating a living example of sustainable vegetation.  It will re-establish the visual spine of the campus with a clear view to the heritage precinct of the canary palms.

The landscape will provide a wide and clear equitable pedestrian thoroughfare through the site connecting the foundation precinct to the campus heart and entry from the Inner Ring Road.  It will be framed by layered canopies in the form of trees, terraces and arbour study structures.
