This particular category of service that we provide is probably closest to our hearts. Before commencing any project, we’re keen to identify environmental aspects and impacts within a defined scope of works. Of course this is all the more true when it comes to the creation or restoration and recovery of Wetlands.
Glascott Landscape & Civil specialise in the restoration and creation of wetlands. Our aim always is to help maintain the benefits of wetlands and their surrounding ecosystems, while at the same time accommodating the human need for development.
Expanding populations often result in wetlands being drained or altered – transformations that directly and indirectly, bring about changes in the migratory patterns of birds, local climate and the makeup of plant and animal populations. Creating or restoring wetlands results in many benefits including improved water quality, flood attenuation, aesthetics, and recreational opportunities.
A good example of our work in this area is the Tempe Wetlands – part of a $17.5 million clean-up program of the former Tempe Tip site. This project required major earthworks to cap and contour the landfill itself to prevent access by contaminates and make it suitable for community use.
We landscaped the wetlands and parks, creating more fauna areas so ducks and other birds would return and all landscaped areas were irrigated by recycled water from a leachate treatment plant. The project won the 2005 NSW Case Earth award for Environmental Excellence.
Another example is the Central Creek urban recreational reserve development for Liverpool City Council. Works on this project included broad acre revegetation along the existing creek, implementing erosion control methods. There were concrete works including paths, wall and headwalls, stormwater drainage and wetland construction as well as fencing and vehicle barrier works.
