Landscape Technical

Adelaide LT 20150317 8 1

Street Furniture Australia was pleased to be involved in AILA’s new Landscape Technical CPD sessions. Landscape Technical provides a forum for presentation and exhibition of industry information in an educational and inspiring format. The sessions offer landscape architects the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and research from Australia’s leading suppliers in one jam-packed session.

During February and March, Landscape Technical sessions were hosted at each state by individual State AILA Chapters. On Thursday, 19 March, the NSW event held two presentations: ‘Designing and Selecting Outdoor Exercise Solutions for People of All Ages’ by Harri Makela, Managing Director of Lappset Australia, and ‘Designing to Manufacture’ by Michelle Herbut, SFA Project Manager (Custom Product Sales). Michelle Herbut discussed the key steps in creating one’s own street furniture products ready for manufacture. The workshop covered all aspects of designing street furniture, including cost, risk minimisation, assembly, transport and maintenance.
