How do you begin a project?
Often the initial move on a project can establish the spirit of the effort.
It was critical for us to work to save aspects of the house removed and that began with a letter to neighbours – Plants for the taking. After we worked with the landscape designers to tag plants to be saved or transplanted to a new site, we opened the site to those game for a transplant. A minor community engagement resulted that introduced individuals to the pending construction and involve them in a positive way.
Over 50% of the plants were liberated and all tall trees were relocated by Aloe Design.
A tone was set and demolition could now begin. Building was sorted and recycled.
