The Forum, Blenheim
In the heart of Blenheim, we have given this popular common area’s landscape a whole new look. Updating the elevated grass seating areas using Corten steel, granite slabs and concrete to hold it all into place and gives a modern, unique feature to the landscape. We have allowed the area to slope down, giving it more grass area by doubling the size of them for the public to sit and enjoy the sunny weather that Marlborough is famous for.
To allow this we have removed the old brick retaining structure walls from around each tree, leaving the existing trees in their place.
Marlborough lines installed the street lights with new energy-efficient LEDs. While they were installing them, we had our Traffic Management Team on-site, to effectively and safely manage the traffic allowing staff to work with minimal disruption or hazard to the public. The site was fully fenced as required.
