Ground Control continues to work with Pellicano Group and JCA Land Consultants on various stages of the Innovation Park masterplanned business community in Dandenong South.
Works include multiple streetscape stages and a Melbourne Water waterway open space reserve, involving careful levels and floodwater planning, the incorporation of maintenance access tracks and shared pedestrian/cycle paths, picnic areas, supplementary planting and protection of many remnant River Red Gums along the margins of the Eastern Contour Drain.
Ground Control was engaged in 2018 by Neoen and Downer Utilities Australia to prepare a landscape plan for approx. 10.7 kilometres of buffer planting to the perimeter of a new solar farm in Drumanure, just south of Numurkah Victoria.
Downer and Ground Control worked closely together to determine maximum heights for buffer plantings in all areas to ensure sun exposure to solar arrays was maximised throughout the year. All 22,000+ plants to be used in planting buffers have been carefully selected indigenous species, and are currently being propagated from local seed for planting in Autumn 2019.
Planning commenced in 2018, with construction planned to be completed in 2019.
