In an ever-changing landscape, Barangaroo’s hoardings come down as new ones rise to begin the construction of another tower in the precinct. Often seen as a bland, utility structure, Lendlease use their hoardings as an opportunity to bring urban areas to life with nature.
Demonstrating their commitment to reducing construction waste to landfill, Lendlease relocated the Junglefy Green Hoardings from one construction site to another in Barangaroo’s Northern end. The Green Hoardings not only connect people to nature but they trap construction dust and help to cool the surrounding area by absorbing reflected heat from the road.
Making this project circular with the reuse of the Green Hoardings, Junglefy took the plant modules from the first site, back to our Nursery to be looked after until the new site was ready for the installation of the plants onto the hoardings. The thriving plants were transitioned to their new home and they are now regularly managed by our maintenance team to keep the plants in top health.
The use of hoardings as living walls is a new opportunity to bring nature to our cities and hadn’t been done before Lendlease’s first hoarding project. Transforming hoardings with plants delivers benefits to people, biodiversity and creates more engaging spaces throughout our cities. As our cities evolve, we’ll continue to look for more opportunities to create connections to nature.
