Master Builders Association Awards 2013

Tract Consultants were recently recognised for their contribution to the development of the National Tennis Centre and Eastern Plaza at Melbourne Park home of the Australian Open by the Master Builders Association Awards 2013, winning the prestigious open category - Excellence in Commercial Buildings ($80 million +).

The landscape component of the project is centred upon the Eastern Plaza which forms a majestic entrance to the Hisense Arena. Tract designed a colonnade of phoenix palms that encloses a stone paved and dynamic space.
This high quality square is connected by a series of bespoke timber ramps to the new National Tennis Centre and 12 outdoor tennis courts. All elements are linked by native trees and under storied planting that provides a gardenesque atmosphere. These plantings not only create a uniquely Australian setting for the grand slam but link the project to the wider parkland that surrounds Melbourne’s sporting precinct.
