The Department of Environment and Conservation awarded Allday Construction the tender for the Pinjar Off-Road Vehicle Area,Western Car Park. This project consisted of construction and landscaping 14,500m2 of limestone tracks including a looped road, carparks and feeder roads through untouched bush.
Utmost attention was paid to preserving trees and trans-locating grass trees to ensure minimal damage to existing vegitation and an overall natural look to the finished product.
The project was completed a month within schedule with no recorded LTIs. Due to the high standard this project is being submitted for the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects Award. View DEC recommendation letter
