Construction completion:



The Harrison Secondary School is nestled in the northern suburbs of Canberra. The package of works included all external elements and is an excellent demonstration of Design Landscapes diversity of skills and range of capabilities. Interconnecting exposed aggregate pathways bisect rain-gardens throughout large areas of the school ensuring that all surface runoff is utilised. Given the site is relatively flat the accuracy of installed levels was paramount. The series of covered walkways connecting buildings and play areas was undertaken as a design and construct component. A piazza provides outdoor learning opportunity for the more senior classrooms and features segmented off-form coloured concrete seating steps which demonstrate the quality of product that Design Landscapes is proud to put their name to.
