Colliers Engineering (formerly Peak Urban) was engaged by Hume City Council to plan, design and contract administer the new 5-hectare civic park to the new suburb Highlands, north-west of Craigieburn.

Colliers Engineering engaged Michael Smith and Associates to prepare the landscape design to the entire space that included the playspace, pump track and skate park, together with significant amounts of pathways and open space. Our role involved the detailed design and documentation of the playspace, including preparation of the horticultural works, specification for the park and specification for the playspace.
