Holland Street Plaza and Streetscape Project

Our brief for this project involved the upgrade of the existing northern section of Holland Street at Thebarton into a modern urban streetscape and plaza area.

Scope

  • Demolition of existing roadway, kerb and footpath
  • bulk earthworks, including removal of contaminated fill materials
  • construction of new road pavement incorporating a variety of finishes
  • construction of new footpath comprising asphalt and block paving
  • design and construction of a new bio-retention basin that harvests stormwater
  • urban design feature elements including precast concrete seating, pedestrian bridge, fountain and corten feature works
  • public lighting to the plaza area
  • landscaping works

Challenges

  • Construction to take place within a business precinct – staging of works required to mitigate impacts
  • management of pedestrian and cyclists during construction
  • proximity of adjacent buildings and infrastructure – vibration, noise and dust
