This includes transforming Goyder Square into a new green heart for the city centre. BMD Urban General Manager, David Moody said, “BMD Urban is thrilled to continue our work with the City of Palmerston, especially on iconic projects that are sure to become community assets for years to come.” “BMD Urban has been operating in Darwin for more than 18 years and projects such as Goyder Square allow us to demonstrate our capabilities in both soft and hard landscaping features,” Mr. Moody said.
