King’s was proud to be picked to work on our home-city’s CBD transformation. As part of the council’s Revitalising Central Geelong project, the laneways received a complete streetscape upgrade with brand-new footpaths, trees and planting, street furniture, public art and lighting. Read More
We laid thousands of square metres of high quality Australian bluestone, old cracked and uneven pavement and kerbing. The footpaths were widened, creating a plaza effect for pedestrians and to enable traders to offer alfresco dining areas for customers. The introduction of in-ground trees and planter boxes also added shade, shelter and greenery to the space.
The result is a completely revamped shopping precinct, as well as adding a long overdue safe space to Geelong’s lively nightlife.
King’s Landscaping Group provided the commercial landscaping services, including:
One of our largest commercial paving projects in terms of duration and complexity was a $1 million upgrade to Warrnambool’s CBD. We relocated a team to the city to carry out the once-in-a-generation landscape project, completely transforming the city’s main street. Read More
A two-stage project spread over two years, King’s meticulously laid more than 8000 square metres of Australian bluestone, equivalent to around 30 tennis courts.
Stage 1 saw the top end of Liebig St completely demolished. The old uneven, concrete footpaths were replaced with high-end Australian grade bluestone supplied by local firm, Bamstone. Over nine months, our team laid more than 6000 m2 of bluestone paving, cobbles, kerbing, trees and street furniture.
Stage 2 completed in August 2018 saw the bottom half of the main street overhauled and refreshed with new wide bluestone footpaths creating a plaza-type space.
As with all of our commercial paving projects, the installation took careful planning with precision set out and levels, factoring in service pit lids, shop fronts, kerbing and parking bays.
Our no-fuss team collaborated with hundreds of on-site personnel and trades, completing night works where necessary and thriving under community scrutiny from the council, local traders, pedestrians and the media.
We were proud to employ several local tradesmen, and together with head contractor 2Construct, our team transformed the tired and fledgling main street into a vibrant, modern shopping precinct to adequately service a growing regional city.
King’s Landscaping Group worked with a local architect and traders to revamp the commercial streetscapes of busy shopping precincts, Pakington St in Geelong West and Ormond Rd in East Geelong.
The commercial landscape project began by excavating and removing existing cracked concrete, old brick garden beds and outdated benches, bike-racks and signage.
