The Kawana Health Precinct is a hub of health and wellbeing services for Sunshine Coast residents. Completed in 2013, the construction of its main street incorporated approximately sixty Golden Penda (Xanthostemon chrysanthus) trees, aiming to soften the surrounding streetscape and provide shade for visitors to the precinct.

John Donoghue, Associate Director at Urbis, said, “This project consisted of a full hardscape verge, requiring adequate uncompacted soil and irrigation to promote large tree growth. Citygreen’s Stratacell system, in combination with some additional strip drains along the kerb, enabled us to meet both objectives. The modular cell system provides enough space underground for soil volume and root growth, with drains funnelling rainwater underground to irrigate the cells.

“The contractors found the system straightforward to install, excavating the area required and installing it against the subgrade to act as an edge. Across multiple projects, the Citygreen team have always been great to work with. They’re very responsive and provide useful input to our designs. These days, we get them involved early, whereby they ensure our designs are viable or provide alternate suggestions if required.

“Four years down the track, the trees are performing and growing really well. We know Citygreen’s systems work and would definitely recommend them to others.”

“Great customer service, quick response times and a very in depth QA system with constant support.”

“Citygreen offered training and invaluable technical assistance during the works.”

“Our experience, in working with a Citygreen Design Studio was second to none. We found responses from the design studio to be very timely, and technically thorough. We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”

“We are big on compliance on all projects, and the fact that their SmartCertify cloud platform covers all bases, and supports their 20 year warranties, is critical – especially that these pits are being installed under roadways and footpaths.”

- Johny Purkaystha, Civil Program Engineer, Central Coast Council -

"I reviewed all the previous projects that we have installed in the past couple years using your product and I can happily report back that we have 0% mortality in the soil cells, which is incredible!"
