We advised Mirvac on the bamboo installation 1 Bond Street, Sydney.


  • ‘Temple Bamboo’ installed in the foyer/lobby of 20 Bond Street, Sydney (by others) showing poor appearance.
  • Innovative Plant Technology asked to provide specialist advice:
  1. whether the light levels are appropriate for this species of bamboo, or if the bamboo is being over-irrigated.
  2. If the bamboo was replaced if it would survive or what other species would we recommend

Outcome Required

  • immediate assessment and recommendations to stop further decline
  • recover the design intent for a healthy green screen
