“Creating an inspired local landmark”
The Ponds is one of Australia’s fastest growing residential communities and Fleetwood has been involved from the earliest stages of its development. We’ve executed a wide range of large and important landscape structure elements for our client, UrbanGrowth NSW, including shelters, bridges, viewing decks, boardwalks and public artworks. Among our most prominent projects has been The ‘Float’, an award-winning public art installation featuring twelve large sculptured umbrellas, designed to blend into the suburban landscape and become an enduring part of its social footprint. It was also our first project at The Ponds.

Scope of Work
Like each of our projects at The Ponds, we worked as a collaborative partner throughout the design and construction process. This saw us work closely with the artists, Milne & Stonehouse to bring their sketch designs to life through a series of elegant engineering solutions. The bulk of construction took place on the site itself, with Fleetwood installing the footings, fabricating the umbrella structures, and then cutting and installing the stainless steel transit meshes. We also collaborated with the lighting provider to ensure the project was completed in time for the grand opening of that particular sector of The Ponds development.
Fleetwood is highly respected and UrbanGrowth NSW has developed an extraordinarily strong trustworthy relationship with them over the years.
