OUTLINES Landscape Architecture Pty Ltd
"Outlines have been involved in the New Horizons project at Monash University Clayton since 2010. This state of the art facility is a centerpiece in the regeneration of the University and integrates with the broader Campus through a range of key civic connections and spaces. We were involved in the design through to construction phase of the project and became involved with PTA when they were awarded the landscape construction works. Through the course of 2012 and 2013 the works were completed on site and we had regular first-hand dealings with PTA. Overall the quality of the construction is excellent, in particular the detailed finishing of elements such as pavements, custom furniture, decks, walls and planters. The design included a range of subtle yet complex systems of drainage, including Water Sensitive Urban Design and services, all of which have been skilfully executed. PTA were always pro-active about providing solutions to issues or modifications arising from latent conditions discovered on site. Now into the maintenance period, the site continues to be maintained by PTA to a high standard and soft landscape particularly has thrived and established well. The project team both at an administrative and on-site level were always cooperative and helpful to deal with. It would be my pleasure to recommend PTA Landscapes for further similar work."

"PTA Landscapes were engaged by Monash University for Stage 2 of the New Horizons Project, Campus Walk. PTA Landscapes attention to the required detailing was exemplary, their work in an operating environment with staff and students was beyond reproach, and their attention to the administration required to deliver such a signature project was excellent. Working with relevant Monash University managers, the plant selection has proven in the long term to have been the correct approach. The works gained practical completion in December 2013 and since then the growth of the soft landscaping, combined with PTA Landscapes after care has seen this new highly."
