Location 70 Middleborough Road, Burwood East
Project completion September 2019

The world’s most sustainable retail outlet

With an unprecedented focus on environmental sustainability, Frasers Property Australia are transforming Burwood Brickworks into the most sustainable retail outlet in the world, with a rooftop that will house a 2000m2 urban farm and dining precinct.

Once complete in late 2019, the striking space will house acre, a farm-to-table café and bar set in the heart of the farm itself, with dishes created from the on-site produce.

Community engagement, including education on farming best practice, is the beating heart of the space, with cooking classes, farm tours, harvests, preserving days and markets all planned for the farm.

Soil blowing with unprecedented speed

Ecodynamics Services were contracted by Hacer to install 145m3 of specialty soil into the space across a two day period. The client had specified Fulton’s Rooflite Extensive Blend, which our Services division sourced and blew directly into the garden beds on site.

Heavy volume of soil? We’ve got you covered.

Moving such a huge volume of soil necessitated the use of our slinger, allowing the blower truck to remain in situ whilst the slinger returned to the yard to reload with additional soil. This was then trucked back to Brickworks and slung into the blower, allowing for continuous operation of the blower truck.

The client praised the work ethic of our on site team, who worked two very long days to get the job done on time – they even cleaned up after themselves, with no soil left outside the beds, ready for planting.
