Bushcare and Revegetation Contract Administration at Happy Valley
EBS has provided services to the Happy Valley Lifestyle Village for several years. As part of the lifestyle village development, a significant amount of money was set aside to manage and improve an area (approx. 8 ha) of Eucalyptus microcarpa woodland. Initially, EBS reviewed and updated the Native Vegetation Management Plan for the site. This involved further developing weed management strategies and revegetation requirements across the project site.
EBS then prepared the tender documents for a contract to undertake revegetation and bushcare weed control. EBS called the contract, assessed tenders and awarded the contract. After the contract was awarded, EBS was responsible for all contract administration, contract surveillance and approving payments. Regular site meetings were held with the successful contractor to determine progress and address any issues.
As a part of this project, EBS also implemented the Bushland Condition Monitoring methodology. This methodology is aimed at detecting changes to vegetation condition and quality as a result of the implemented on-ground works. The monitoring has detected a significant reduction in weed species cover and the regeneration of several local native species, predominantly Acacias.
