Dakota Park – Christchurch Airport

High quality landscape design for a new business park development

Dakota Park is a business park development by Christchurch International Airport (CIAL) that caters for the warehousing and logistics industry. Boffa Miskell was engaged by CIAL to provide landscape concept, detailed design and contract administration for both the streetscape and development for the first key anchor tenant, Recall.

One of the features and selling points of Dakota Park is high quality landscape. A key aspect of the landscape design was the inclusion of a significant number of street trees and garden areas – in many comparative developments in Christchurch the same level of landscape is not provided. Careful consideration was given to the placement of landscape features to ensure suitable access for large vehicles and that the overall functionality of the business park was not compromised.

Boffa Miskell also prepared landscape and site design guidelines for the development of individual lots in the business park. The guidelines were prepared to ensure a high standard of site design, consideration of building appearance from the street and a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing landscape setting across the entire business park.
