Typically, the outback is a harsh environment and the location of this camp is no different. Careful consideration of species was required to ensure livability and availability for such a remote location. 

Consideration of the layout of the camp was specifically required to deliver a landscape that met a strict budget while sufficient enough for such a large expanse of area. Recreation and pedestrian areas were prioritized for landscape treatment. 

Other cost effective and low maintenance initiatives included using a locally selected inorganic mulch for the majority of the planted areas and these worked in combination with larger aggregate to drainage swales to direct overland flow. 

Meeting a landscape strict budget, Citicene in conjunction with Scape Shapes delivered a landscape that met the builders budget and time frame requirements. 

Mining camps can be temporary or permanent. Typically they house a lot of personnel that are away from home so it makes perfect sense to create environments that contribute to the well-being of residents but also meet cost effective construction budgets.
