Project Scope and Challenges

Creating beautiful parklands and functional sporting grounds for the local community is a rewarding job. When asked to develop Tofa Mamao Park on Kruger Parade at Collingwood Park, JCB leapt at the chance to develop two full sized football fields with associated equipment, grassing and irrigation system.

The brief was also to construct a 60 space car park of gravel with a 2 coat seal and other associated earthworks, such as swale drains. We also supplied and installed timber bollards and landscaped the park with trees and gardens, together with an irrigation system to keep them looking great.

A challenge with the site was managing run off into the environment during construction so mulch was used to stabilise the bare earthworks prior to final landscaping.
