The revitalization of the Roy Marten Reserve in Taperoo has tails wagging, with locals embracing the new recreational space and dedicated dog areas.
Roy Marten Reserve has increased amenities to the local community, including two dog parks, play equipment and waterplay items, a halfcourt basketball court and BBQ facilities which promote usability of the site and community activation.
Existing stormwater & infrastructure limitations put our client’s budget at risk, but with early engagement with the client by the FMG civil team, optimisation of the designs reduced the amount of physical infrastructure and associated works required. This saved our client from excessive construction costs and reducing build time.
Staging of the project allowed our client to select different contractors for each stage which reduced their costs. With that saving, our client was able to reinvest in the amount of local amenities in the reserve, to keep the community satisfied.
The surrounding community has greatly benefitted from the reconstruction of Roy Marten Park with high public attendance.
