Exemplary Project : The Place To Race
Fleming's leads the pack with their winning design for Pakenham Race Club in Victoria.
The opportunity to create an iconic new racing facility is rare, so Fleming’s knew the design and installation of the new course for Pakenham Race Club in Tyabb (Victoria) had to be special.
The new racecourse is not only expected to be a hive of activity on race day, but will also host a wide range of public and private events as it settles into its first year of trading. Therefore the landscape had to be durable to cope with large crowds, soften hard facilities and services, and provide places for photography without impeding the safety of crowds.
Working to tight deadlines and budgets was a must and yet the effect at Victoria’s newest thoroughbred racing facility is striking. With impressive corten steel and wooden bollard fencing at the entrance, to the architectural building softened by soft plants, mature majestic trees and vast expanses of turf, the overall design of this facility is a winner.
From the entrance, consisting of large stone entry features flanking the dual carriage and long drive, Fleming’s have installed mature trees that will grow into a grand avenue fit for the racing elite.
Fleming's Landscape Services were also commissioned to complete all soft and hard landscape works outside of the track itself and the wetlands. This work will continue over a period of years until the entire facility is completed.
The ongoing project will not only enhance the environment as it grows and matures, but create a legacy for race-goers for many years to come.
