Central Park Sandyford

Central Park, Sandyford is a large mixed-use development which was constructed over a decade ago. The O’Brien’s team were commissioned to provide a full-service package which encompassed consultation, design, installation, and maintenance. The client brief was extremely ambitious as is sought to create a retrofitted green landscape in an existing, densely built hard landscape environment over underground parking.

The design team was led by company Director, Barry Lupton, who developed the scheme from an initial concept to detail and installation. Installation was overseen by one of the rising stars of the O’Brien’s team, Raivis Linins. The project is now complete and is managed by our maintenance division.

The design centred on coupling the need for green infrastructure with the desire to provide for increased use and social gathering. This was achieved through the design and construction of polished concrete raised planters with integrated seating, lighting, irrigation and a simple but resilient plant palette. The site presented many challenges, not least of which were underground parking and services, and extreme weather conditions.
