Synthetic Turf Specialist

Auckland Council

Auckland, New Zealand

Hats off to Auckland Council for turning a sow’s ear into a silk purse! 

People enjoying the sunshine while relaxing in deck chairs at the bottom of Queen Street? Lower Queen Street became a happy green oasis where shoppers and local business people could stroll or sit and chat – and they loved it.

While construction progressed in the Auckland CBD, access to surrounding buildings and business was difficult for shoppers, tourists and workers.

Being the termination area for Auckland’s public transport hub; trains through the Britomart station, ferries at the ferry terminal and buses linking to dozens of Auckland suburbs, thousands of people use the Lower Queen Street area daily.

The congestion was intensified with the ongoing construction of Auckland’s CBD which affected business, commuters and tourist alike. 

The Auckland Council wanted to minimise the effects of the construction effort and create the impression of a relaxing and calm green space amidst the chaos of construction.

The Council approached TigerTurf, and we recommended a great product that would stand up to the stress of thousands of feet crossing the hardwearing fibres every day and, and furthermore, help increase business activity by improving shoppers’ access to nearby stores.

TigerTurf Summer Envy XWR is the rock star of our landscape turfs

TigerTurf XWR Summer Envy is an outstanding landscape turf for heavy traffic areas.

As you can see from the photos, WXR Summer Envy is a lush green sward of grass, with a tinge of summer warmth woven into the yarn.

Hats off to Auckland Council for that great idea. We believe that TigerTurf’s XWR Summer Envy significantly improved people’s shopping and commuting experience. Businesses found that customers appreciated the improved shopping conditions and tourists took the time to enjoy an oasis of calm in the middle of a busy city street.

Synthetic turf can be the solution to multitude situations

The problems brought to us are diverse and interesting, but in every case, we focus on improving the quality of life for the users. And for the thousands of people shopping, working and commuting within the area under construction in the Auckland CBD, we were able to create a positive and beautiful experience.
