Hutchinson Builders have commissioned a total of 30 Florence Trough planters to help add foliage to hardscaped areas in Karalee Shopping Village in Ipswich, Queensland.
Along with the steel beams, the planters helped to differentiate the pedestrian area and the parking area. The combination of red, green and yellow foliage makes the hardscaping easier on the eyes. The planters also line the vicinity of the restaurants for a more pleasant al fresco dining experience.
Karalee Shopping Village is home to large establishments like Coles and Woolworths as well as various restaurants, beauty and wellness centers, liquor stores, banks, and designer stores. Ipswich is a booming location and the expansion of the shopping village will help cater to the increasing population including the redevelopment of the CBD.
The expansion project which costs $80 million has Hutchinson Builders adding 5,600 square meters of shopping space to the already bustling city. The expansion project was built on the adjacent road that was acquired back in 2015. The expansion saw the addition of tens of specialty stores and over 300 new parking slots with disabled parking and parents with prams car parks. The location is also easily accessible with public transportation.
The Florence Concrete Trough Planters range is a premium range of planters from IOTA Australia. The Florence range of planters is made from lightweight and durable concrete. It is weatherproof which makes it suitable for both commercial and residential areas.
