May 2015 - June 2016


$5.6 million




The scope of work included:

  • demolition works
  • construction of new car parks
  • construction of new road pavements to replace an existing roundabout
  • construction of drainage infrastructure
  • electrical works
  • hard and soft landscaping works
  • installation of water features
  • installation of shade structures.


BMD Urban completed the project on budget and on schedule. Delays were experienced early in the project due to unknown existing services being found. The project team introduced night shifts and weekend works to accelerate the program and make up the time lost. Despite these delays, the project was handed over in time for the City of Palmerston’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

In order to reduce impacts to adjacent businesses and buildings, a road profiler was used to demolish the majority of the original concrete surfaces to minimise noise and vibrations. Water carts were also used for dust suppression.
