Springbank Rise is a master planned residential community in Canberra’s north masterplanned and developed by Lendlease Communities. Springbank Rise  was designed around the existing high quality trees on the site, providing a leafy setting that established this new estate beyond its years. The infrastructure provided for the community included local parks, ornamental ponds, a dog park, local centre and extensively landscaped residential streets and pocket parks.


SPACELAB was engaged by Lendlease as the Project Manager to coordinate the stakeholders related to the project, including various ACT government agencies, infrastructure service providers, contractors and builders.


The works included close coordination with Transport Canberra and City Services and Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate for the close out of the estate’s Deed. SPACELAB also worked closely with over 500 residential customers to close out the Covenants for the estate.


“Geoff’s superior negotiation skills and positive relationship with stakeholders have provided Lendlease with an excellent consultancy service for their residential estate in Canberra.”
