Project Details

RICH Landscapes had the unique opportunity of being engaged to undertake a significant miniramp redesign of the Fairfield Miniramps commissioned by Dunedin City Council. This was one of two distinct contracts that brought together the expertise of both RICH Landscapes and a local contractor to deliver an exceptional outcome.

The first contract entrusted RICH Landscapes with the task of developing the overall design, from concept to the developed design. Working closely with the community, RICH Landscapes ensured that every aspect of the project aligned with their aspirations. Through an inclusive co-design process, community input was incorporated to create a miniramp setup that truly reflected their desires.

With the developed design in place, the local contractor was engaged to deliver the ramp detailing and construction of the ramps working closely with Fulton Hogan.

The collaboration between RICH Landscapes and the local contractor resulted in the creation of cutting-edge skate surfaced miniramps, replacing the outdated metal sheeted ramps. RICH Landscapes' overarching design provided the framework for the project, which the contractor was able to take further through the construction process.

The new miniramps showcased the combined efforts of both parties. It featured an extended 4.8-metre wide, 3-foot miniramp, providing ample space for skaters to showcase their skills. Additionally, a spined double miniramp, ranging from 5 to 6 feet in height, added an element of excitement and challenge. The ramps, spanning 7.2 metres in width on both sides, provided a thrilling experience for skaters of all levels.

Throughout the project, RICH Landscapes took great pride in their role of developing the overall design, ensuring that it precisely met the community's vision. Together with the contractor, they delivered the miniramp setups that not only revitalised the space but also fostered a sense of community ownership and pride.

In summary, RICH Landscapes who was commissioned by Dunedin City Council lead to the successful creation of the cutting-edge miniramps that perfectly aligned with the community's aspirations. This achievement showcases the dedication of all parties involved and highlights the transformative power of skate amenities in fostering community engagement, promoting physical activity, and creating vibrant recreational spaces.
