King William Road is known for its heritage architecture, thriving community and extensive paved road. In recent years King William Road has experienced it’s fair share of wear and tear. However, instead of simply repairing the street, our client, The City of Unley Council, embraced the opportunity to revitalise the iconic high-street and create a space people love to visit.
The City of Unley engaged FMG Engineering and Outerspace Landscape Architects to realise their vision for King William Road. An extensive design development process was undertaken before leading an award-winning community consultation process that was key to achieving not only the design aspirations but also their vision for the greater community.
Pioneering design philosophies were paired with the existing heritage elements to deliver the street you see today, which is alive with outdoor activities, increased greenery and patrons. An outcome made possible through the use of bespoke engineering solutions, early contractor involvement and a collaborative process between all parties.
As with all engineering projects, the real measure of its success will come over the next 40 years as the innovative pavement designs, stormwater networks and other engineered elements are tested.
