Sustainable practice is an integral feature of substation development in Transpower’s electricity network
Landscape interventions at the Brownhill Substation in Whitford, mitigated development of infrastructure and enhanced the peri-rural environment.
The land now occupied by the substation was previously grazing land prone to erosion and soil loss. Boffa Miskell and Transpower developed a consultation plan and together with the community sought landscape management outcomes for long term environmental benefits for the site. Boffa Miskell ecologists and landscape architects worked together closely on the project, and collaboratively with Beca engineers and the contractors HEB.
Landscape interventions included:
Consultation, Ecology, Landscape Architecture, Water Sensitive / Low Impact Design.
