LOCATION  – 101 Wells Street, Frankston, VIC

CLIENT  – South East Water

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT  – Aspect Studios

PROJECT BUILDER  – ProBuild

DESIGN & INSTALL  – Fytogreen Australia

COMPLETION  – September 2014

Completing works on the new South East Water headquarter building, Fytogreen installed the green roof on Level W1, the full shade eastern garden on the ground floor, and the tiered entrance garden which follows the building’s escalator up 4 levels which contains trees up to 5m high at planting time.

Due to all areas being in a complete rain shadow, Fytogreen refined a suitable species list for the roof gardens. This rain shadow aspect meant that the irrigation design had to be very robust and supported by a flow rate monitored alarm system.

With the gardens all under the roof line, standard cranes could not be used for moving material easily to the respective areas. This required material to be placed where possible by Franna crane horizontally and the bulk of the material was blown in by We-Blow.
