MNG Congratulates FPA on its national UDIA Enviro Accolade

29th March 2014

MNG congratulates Frasers Property Australia for its success at the 2014 Urban Development Institute of Australia National Awards for Excellence, with its Frasers Landing development collecting the prestigious Environmental Excellence Award.

MNG has proudly supplied survey, land tenure and spatial consultancy services to the Frasers Landing project since 2005, resulting in the titling of more than 100 boutique lots at the Coodanup estate (5 minutes south east of Mandurah). As the clients’ surveyor MNG is responsible for liaison with appointed town planners/engineers and landscape architects to ensure all civil and landscape works are built to design and/or statutory requirements through set out and as-con surveys. In addition to this, MNG’s responsibilities extend to management of sub divisional survey and obtaining clearances for the timely production of land titles.

MNG Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director Scott Anderson said MNG was proud to be a consultancy partner on the Frasers Landing project.

"MNG highly values its relationship with the Frasers Property Australia team and their success at both State and national UDIA level for their Frasers Landing project is well deserved," Mr Anderson said.

"We congratulate everyone at Frasers Property Australia and Frasers Landing on their project success and very much look forward to continuing to provide our industry leading survey and spatial services to the project in the years ahead."

Frasers Landing is a 52 hectare estate on the Serpentine River in WA’s Peel region. The project’s commitment to environmental excellence was recognised at State level last August when the project was awarded the 2013 UDIA (WA) Environmental Excellence Award. The 2013 UDIA WA Awards judges commented that Frasers Landing had an over-arching objective to create a ‘village in a forest’ in recognition of the significant stands of vegetation that cover the site. Twelve hectares of the 52 hectare site were set aside as a formal Core Conservation Area with the developed component of the site consisting of a series of ‘hamlets’ clustered around landscaped central parklands, rich in retained native trees. The 12 hectares of natural bushland provide habitat for a rare pair of breeding Ospreys, and for innovations in water table management, low-waste construction and tree retention.

Frasers Landing’s success at the 2013 WA awards saw it automatically nominated for the national awards, which were held at the annual UDIA National Congress in Brisbane on Friday night.

The Environmental Excellence awards recognise a development’s commitment to best environmental management practice. Many of Frasers Landing’s developed blocks of land are set within a natural canopy of retained trees and existing vegetation, creating a location sympathetic to the environment. A riverside lagoon, tree-lined streets, walking tracks, boardwalks and parklands make Frasers Landing stand apart from other developments as a livable residential community built in harmony with the environment.
