Hall Contracting successfully translocated 12.2 ha of native vegetation (including rare and threatened plant species) to the University of the Sunshine Coast. Carefully selected seeds and cuttings from the site were also propagated for establishment in alternative locations.
The team used its in-house steel fabrication capabilities to build unique tiling bins, which allowed for the easy excavation & transfer of the vegetation. A compensatory habitat was also provided for displaced fauna, including several rare and endangered species such as the acid frog and ground parrot.
Our efforts on this project saw Hall Contracting named as a finalist in the prestigious Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) Earth Awards. It is thought to be one of the largest translocation projects of its type undertaken in Australia.
