Redlands IndigiScapes Centre

Extension of the much-loved environmental education centre for Redland City Council


IndigiScapes Centre is an environmental education facility located in Brisbane’s bayside that attracts over 40,000 visitors each year.

Ranbury was engaged by Redland City Council to provide Superintendent’s Representative services (including construction oversight) on the extension of the popular centre. Key features of the expansion included:

  • Refurbishment of existing IndigiScapes building and entryway including the addition of a Discovery Centre
  • New theatrette and conference building and facilities
  • New cafe and gift shop
  • Landscaping works.

The facility is located in mature native bushland, and there were a range of stakeholders who maintained an active interest in the environmental impact of the works. Ranbury worked closely with all key stakeholders to ensure the project was delivered respectfully and successfully.

“The collaboration between, Ranbury and Redland City Council has been fabulous in what has been in sometimes tough circumstances” – Pippa Donaldson, Service Manager – Environment and Education at Redland City Council.

The improved IndigiScapes officially reopened to the public on 21 February 2020, coinciding with its 20th anniversary. Future plans for the centre include the construction of a skywalk, subject to funding.

Ranbury took active steps to minimise the amount of native vegetation and mature trees affected by construction works.

Ranbury proactively engaged with stakeholders to ensure the project was delivered in an environmentally sensitive way and met all requirements.

Ranbury identified several significant cost savings which contributed to the project being delivered successfully on budget.
