About the Project

Wheller on the Park is a master planned retirement village consisting of 340 apartments and villas with a leisure centre and recreational facilities.

PDT Landscape architects designed and documented stages 3 and 4 of the village and facilitated community focus workshops to inform the development of a central village green which included BBQ facilities, shelters, garden rooms, productive gardens, an exercise trail and play area for grandchildren.

PDT Landscape architects (in particular Nathan Clausen) were well suited to join our team and project in stage 3. It was his understanding of the clients design brief and recognition of the site, program & cost limitations that has delivered us a very good outcome. On behalf of Wesley Mission Brisbane, I thank Nathan and his team for the journey and his no nonsense approach to facing the challenges that awaited us at every turn

PDT completed the final stage of development in 2014 with the overall landscaping consisting of a variety of flowering shrubs and groundcovers with varying colours and textures for the residents to enjoy, while still being sympathetic to the ongoing maintenance requirements of the centre.
