Bundamba, Ipswich, Queensland, Australia
Black & Veatch and Thiess on behalf of the Queensland Government, project managed the construction of this Western Corridor recycled water infrastructure project.
This large water treatment plant is located alongside a waterway corridor and adjoining residential community. Consideration of these two neighbouring land uses were an important component of the landscape architectural design.
A key objective of the landscape design was to soften the visual and noise impacts of the plant for neighbouring residents. This was achieved through construction of a large heavily vegetated acoustic mound that was covered with native species.
Specific landscape objectives for this project included:
- strategic planting to reduce lighting and visual impacts from Southern and Western aspects;
- re-vegetation and rehabilitation of a neighbouring existing waterway;
- street tree planting to the surrounding roadway network;
- native planting to a large acoustic mound to the South of the site.
