AN UPDATE FROM MARK STANBROOK – DIRECTOR
Super Gardens won the award for the best Commercial Management and Maintenance site in Victoria – Essendon Fields. Congratulations to the entire team that has worked extremely hard to develop and maintain this prestigious site to the highest possible industry standards.
This award is a reflection of the high standard of work that Super Gardens consistently delivers across the Landscaping and Grounds Maintenance Divisions. We should all be very proud of these achievements.
Essendon Fields Commits to plant 10,000 Trees
To be achieved as soon as possible, owners – Melbourne’s Fox and Beck families – committed to this multi-million dollar investment after positive feedback from tenants and visitors about existing landscaping.
“Essendon Fields has quickly developed a reputation for its landscaping excellence and a dedication to greening its environment. The commitment to plant 10,000 new trees will make Essendon Fields an even more attractive destination for new office tenants and people to visit,” said Essendon Fields CEO, Chris Cowan.
Essendon Fields has a dedicated tree-farm with 2,000 trees ready for replanting. Rainwater is harvested from hanger roofs into holding tanks and pumped to the tree farm. The trees are then irrigated via a drip reticulation system.
This is the largest tree-planting project we’ve been involved in and are fully committed to this sustainable project. The focus on creating green areas that enhance new developments really resonates with Essendon Fields based businesses and their customers.
Current Project November 2018 – South Freeway Extension Landscape Project
A 5000 M2 Garden with 20,000 x 14cm plants has been landscaped in front of the west runway from Burns Street to DFO exit ramp, parallel with the Tullamarine Freeway. These works are an extension by Essendon Fields of the major freeway landscape project, which now extends 2 kilometres from north to south of Essendon Fields Freeway frontage.
Please join me in congratulating Adam Strathairn, who has been promoted to General Manager – Essendon Fields. Adam has added tremendous value to the management of our North West Operations and Essendon Fields teams for nearly two years, and his sound horticulture knowledge and strong people and client management experience will hold him in good stead as we continue to grow and expand.
