Glascott Landscape & Civil has built several major promenades that have quickly become visible icons, moulding the way inhabitants, visitors and tourists experience Australian cities far into the future. We’ve also transformed many Australian streetscapes to a level of environmental quality befitting world class cities. We aim to create high quality urban environments, promote pedestrian amenities, express each city or town’s ‘sense of place’ and create bench marks for future urban design projects.
In each project, design principles were developed on the basis of human needs – e.g. creating areas for movement, activity, play, rest and places to meet. We build promenades and streetscapes that enhance integration and create memorable experiences.
Examples include the Brighton Le Sands Beach Promenade constructed for Rockdale Council and the Jones Street Mall in Ultimo, Sydney. The former stretches in excess of half a kilometre and has become a highly valued public space and asset to the people of Brighton Le Sands.
In Ultimo, the Department of Public Works called for a complete overhaul of a drab inner city street within the sprawling TAFE complex. We transformed Jones Street into a pedestrian boulevard for students and created a campus-style environment by connecting the disjointed TAFE buildings.
The work carried out in Brighton Le Sands included:
- Landscaping the promenade and surrounds
- Paving for over half a kilometre
- Constructing boardwalks, sandstone walls and retaining walls
- Installing electrical cabling and lighting throughout
- Building steps, balustrades, showers and street furniture
- Creating sculpted works
The work carried out in Ultimo included:
- Earthworks and demolition work – the whole street had to be excavated with 1,000 cubic metres of soil and concrete removed
- Electrical cabling for overhead lighting
- Planting of mature trees
