We advised AECOM, Lend Lease Construction and GPT on the successful installation of a 5.0m replacement tree In the Central Node area at Charlestown Square Shopping Centre.


GPT required a feature tree to be located in the Central Node as part of the new extension of the shopping mall.

The tree originally planted and specified by others was failing, and we were contracted to advise a solution.
