Streetscapes is a term used to describe hard landscaping on public space and public corridor space.
Contrax has a history of delivering successful high-profile streetscape projects, often incorporating innovative, sustainable design features that demand bespoke construction methods and techniques, including rain gardens, tree planters, street furniture, below-ground gardens, purposeful puddles and a wide range of decorative and plain concrete.

Contrax is the preferred hard landscaping contractor for a wide range of clients and design consultants due to our leadership in this sector. Our skilled team of experienced carpenters, concreters, pavers, steel fixers, block layers, supervisors and engineers and project managers enable us to meet and exceed our clients’ programmes and deadlines.

With over 70 full-time employees, Contrax self-delivers 98% of its streetscape construction projects, providing the flexibility to allocate skilled tradespeople and resources as and when required to meet project demands.
