A fresh modern landscape for the CSIRO Black Mountain Campus
Glascott Landscape & Civil has been awarded the hardworks landscape package at the new CSIRO Black Mountain Campus. The Campus is part of CSIRO’s 20-year master plan to consolidate all of their Canberra sites onto one high quality, modern facility.
The project will be delivered by Laing O’Rourke and involves design and construction of an ultra-modern purpose-built laboratory and research building, a new car park, infrastructure upgrades and diversions, and the conversion of an existing laboratory building into office accommodation.
Glascott will carry out the hard landscape that surrounds the new building. Works will comprise of high quality courtyard, entry and link spaces.
Glascott has previously worked with Laing O’Rourke to deliver the award-winning Moorebank Relocation Unit, the largest defence infrastructure project since World War II.
“We’re extremely pleased to be working with Laing O’Rourke to deliver the new CSIRO campus,” said Mr Geoff Bunnett, Glascott’s ACT Manager. “With proven expertise in infrastructure landscaping, we look forward to delivering the highest quality surrounds for CSIRO staff and visitors to enjoy.”
CSIRO is Australia’s national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world, deserving of a world-class campus.
The hardworks landscaping works will commence mid August with an estimated completion in early November 2016.
