Client Problem:

The Bendigo Botanic Gardens required an upgrade as part of the Bendigo Botanic Garden Masterplan. First open to the public in 1857, it was determined that the garden would create what is now known as the ‘Garden for the future’.

The City of Greater Bendigo required space for recreation, community and enjoyment for locals and visitors alike. As part of the development, it was deemed that a shelter would be required to provide shade.

 

Specifications:

The shelter design was completed, with final drawings supplied to ASCO to fabricate and install the shelter. Materials, colours and finishes were specified by the client during the tender process.

 

Contractors:

ASCO was trusted to fabricate and install shade elements as part of stage 2 of the Bendigo Botanic Gardens Master Plan development.

 

 

Challenges:

ASCO’s OMEGA process was executed to ensure construction methodology was sympathetic with the completed gardens. Care had to be taken not to damage edging, minimise impact on vegetation, irrigation, lawns and gravel paths.

 

Timeline:

City of Greater Bendigo invited ASCO to submit a proposal in April 2019 and by May we had commenced work on the project. The shelter was open to the public by November 2019.

 

Result:

The result was an award-winning space for the Bendigo community and visitors alike. The space won the 2019 AILA Victoria Award for Gardens.

Importantly, the White Hills community now have a shady place to enjoy the gardens.
