Vertical Builds & Apartments

At Contrax Greenscapes, we specialise in creating beautiful and functional spaces as part of highly technical, full service vertical construction projects.  Working on podiums or at heights, often with weight and space restrictions, requires specialist knowledge and capabilities to deliver in full, to specification on these time-restricted projects.

From the ECI to handover and on-going maintenance, our team works to deliver a stunning result to the twelve-month mark and beyond.  Our experience often provides a pragmatic lens during the early stages of vertical build projects when we work with landscape architects to ensure concepts move smoothly from planning to completion without impacting on delivery.

Project scope & scale

Contrax Greenscapes works with Tier 1 and 2 contractors on projects valued at $150K to $1million+.  We are capable of delivering every component of project hard and soft landscaping requirements for podiums, rooftop gardens, balconies, and green facades.

Technical expertise

We have proven our ability to implement methodologies that are both fit for purpose and fit for construction including decking, tiles and artificial turf on deck jack systems and design of soil media and void fillers that promote the best weight loading of the podium. 

Working to programme with
minimal defects

Vertical construction projects are often a race against time, requiring compacted durations and intelligent sequencing.  That means working in a time-efficient way with minimal defects.  At Contrax Greenscapes we aim to do the job right, first time, every time, but more importantly, if defects occur, we are prepared to do whatever it takes to resolve them without impacting the project timeline. 

One project manager — Full scope of services

During vertical build projects, Contrax Greenscapes offers a full scope of services under a dedicated project manager, providing certainty, accountability, and a single point of contact.  Our expertise and range of services include:

Podiums & Rooftop gardens

Our team understands the complexity of delivering hard and soft landscaping services for podiums and rooftop gardens in an environment that demands a highly technical approach.  Tight programming, working at heights and around other construction teams, and delivering to specification while managing the overall weight and load distribution is critical to the success of these specialist projects.  Contrax Greenscapes has a strong track record in the installation of both the specialised systems and the components for podiums and rooftop gardens. 


Contrax is experienced delivering the technical aspects of work on balconies. From operating within access restrictions to protect the integrity of completed interiors and managing logistics at the end of a tight programme to working at heights and within weight restrictions, the Contrax team can deliver.  

Green Walls

Green walls and foliage systems are often a highly visual component of sustainable building design.  Custom-designed for each project, green walls are a bespoke item.  At Contrax Greenscapes, our experience across a range of systems allows our team to design, recommend, install, and maintain the right system for every job.
