Project Name:   Outdoor Classroom Walk - QLD

Architect(s):   Sharon Bell - Design Instincts

Builder(s):   Ace Landscapes

Product(s) Used:   Colori® Concrete, Exposé® Concrete
Boral would like to congratulate Ace Landscapes of 40 Bernborough Pl, Bridgeman Downs who have won the 2012 Landscape Construction of the Year Award hosted by Landscape Queensland. Not only did Ace Landscapes take out the big award, but also received two other awards for the same site; Environmental Value Commendation & Commercial #4 category.

The Project:
The 'Outdoor Classroom Walk' at the Stone Ridge Estate (Cnr Marshman & Nocturnal Promenade, Narangba) is an innovative project incorporating education, timber recovery, children's artwork and environmental design considerations.

Judges Comments: "It wins primarily because the quality of the workmanship is almost flawless. In an industry that works with organic materials, site, weather, time and cost constraints this is hard to achieve."

Winning Features:
  • The inclusions of hundreds of primary school students art works;
  • The reuse of timber rescued from the site to construct an arbour, a boardwalk, fence post & railings, logs, bollards, seats and sculpture;
  • And the successful transformation of an eroded waterway that promotes and protects bio-diversity of plants and wildlife habitat as well as providing further education for the community.

The overall quality design, construction and rejuvenation of the environmental park corridor, has put this project on the podium as a highly valued asset that is the crowning glory of this display village.
