The Ecovillage at Currumbin is a sustainable community currently home to over 300 residents. Located in the Gold Coast hinterland of south-east Queensland seven minutes’ drive from beautiful Currumbin Beach, The Ecovillage has received numerous accolades including the International Real Estate Federation’s ‘World’s Best Development Award’ in 2008.
The Ecovillage was in need of a new swale bridge in the beautiful village grounds. Tired of the maintenance that goes hand in hand with timber, staff turned to recycled plastic, the perfect fit and natural solution given the site’s focus on the environment. Using brown Replas bollards, profiles and Enduroplank™ recycled plastic decking, a replacement swale bridge went in that everyone can be confident will last for decades. The material makes it totally appropriate to the sustainability principles of the community, as well as being a serious talking point.
