The Grow Estate
Located in Cranbourne East, 50km south-east of the Melbourne CBD, The Grow Estate is an estate and reserve consisting of 251 residential lots and a 1.04ha public open space reserve.
Comprised of 5 streetscape stages, the reserve and estate were the last parcel of land in a local area surrounded by completed developments. The vision for the development was to provide an attractive streetscape that integrated with the developments on all sides, and a reserve that provided a high level of amenity with a range of community activities within a budget. The reserve provides BBQ and picnic facilities; shelter, playground, urban skate elements, large open spaces and groves of trees.
Taylors have been engaged in the provision of Landscape Architecture services including master-planning, detail design, project tender and contract administration. All stages are now constructed, with one streetscape stage handed over to council and all others currently on maintenance.
The project was not without challenges including re-negotiations of design being submitted to council for approval, but value was added by demonstrating to the client and council Taylors professionalism and ability to negotiate a successful design and project solution.
Taylors demonstration of strong client, council and contractor relationships, timely management of contractor termination requirements and design guidance have resulted in the delivery of a project exceeding client, council and community expectations.
