The 2017 AILA Queensland Awards were held on Thursday 22 June at Cloudland in Brisbane, and broadcast online, with Tract the proud recipient of three awards for Gabba 2 Goodwill Bikeway, UQ Synthetic Sports Ovals and Townsville North Railyards projects.

The Tract team also won the Eureka Construction Challenge, on the night, constructing the best creation from Lego.

Congratulations to the project teams involved on these exceptional projects.

Gabba 2 Goodwill Bikeway
Community Contribution - Landscape Architecture Award
Tract Consultants, Bicycle Queensland,

Gabba2Goodwill is an outstanding example of Landscape Architects advocating for and succeeding in a campaign for public good. Following the tragic loss of a young Danish cyclist in 2014, the Landscape Architects engaged with Bicycle Queensland and developed a practical, cost-effective solution that enhanced safety for cyclists and vastly improved the pedestrian and civic capacity of the public realm.
UQ Synthetic Sports Ovals
Infrastructure - Landscape Architecture Award
Tract Consultants, BVN Architects

The UQ Synthetic Sports Oval clearly demonstrates the significant contribution of landscape architecture to the delivery of contemporary and exemplar sustainable urban infrastructure. The project successfully integrates a number of large scale infrastructure assets; parking, synthetic sports pitches, within a challenging, flood impacted context. It delivers an exciting new destination, enhanced facilities and a social hub on campus.

Townsville North Railyards Future Directions
Urban Design - Landscape Architecture Award
Tract Consultants Conrad & Gargett Architects, Calcutta Group, Townsville City Council

The Townsville North Railyards project explores a future where innovation, economic development, culture and landscape values are balanced to maximise community gain. Obvious care has been taken to retain and integrate historic site features within a holistic development plan that will be a catalyst for establishment of a new urban village with an emphasis on innovation. The Landscape Architects have demonstrated leadership in maintaining strong connections to the community and have created a framework for delivery of dynamic spaces while nurturing local identity.
