“Transforming the site of an old golf course into a stunning new community asset”
McGregor Coxall & Perfection Landscapes
Scope of Work
Deliver, Detail, Develop, Discover
The Fairwater Park site was originally an old golf course in the Western Sydney suburb of Blacktown. Australand (now Frasers Property) saw the opportunity to convert the underutilised site into a new, sustainable housing development where residents could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle within close proximity to water. As part of the wider development, landscape architects McGregor Coxall engaged Fleetwood to deliver important community connections through a series of boardwalks, viewing platforms and a pedestrian bridge.
Having previously partnered with Fleetwood, McGregor Coxall was confident our DesignExecute2™ approach would make their vision a reality. The process began by exploring how we could best deliver the design vision. Together we sketched out an abstract plan for how the theme could be best achieved. Next a series of simple drawings were created to help better visualise the concept for the wider project team and client, who we remained in regular contact with at every stage. With in-principle approval we then developed the ideal construction methods, final budgets and specific recommendations on materials based on the fully-certified design. Moving into the construction phase, our expert in-house team manufactured all of the structures in our ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility. These structural elements were partially pre-assembled to ensure the on-site works were as efficient as possible, and that the structures fit together seamlessly. Our site crews then worked closely with the landscape contractor, Perfection Landscapes, to complete the project, ensuring it was delivered on time, on budget and exceeded all expectations.
It has been a great pleasure to work with Fleetwood. Each time we contact them it provides a benefit to the project, to the detailing and to the whole outcome.
