Regarded as one of New South Wales premier parklands, The Western Sydney Parklands Trust recently selected UMS as the successful provider of Landscape and Facilities Maintenance Services.
Set in the heart of Western Sydney, The Western Sydney Parklands contain world class sporting facilities, popular picnic areas, a full length cycle/walking track and native bushland. Covering 5,280 hectares, the Parklands stretch 27 kilometres from Quakers Hill to Leppington and are twenty five times the size of Centennial Park.
As part of the requirements UMS will provide turf and lawn maintenance, facilities, barbeque and grounds cleaning and graffiti management services for the next three years.
UMS is responsible for the maintenance of over 600 hectares of high visitation parkland, which includes the five main park precincts, as well as maintaining and upgrading 27 kilometres of Parkland Tracks and fire trails.
Speaking on behalf of the successful contract team, Urban Maintenance Systems’ Chief Executive Officer David Probert said “We are really looking forward to being part of the new developments at the Parklands. Our services are provided within a highly professional operational and management structure to ensure landscapes are protected and enhanced”.
Over the past ten years UMS has maintained the Parklands for the Trust, with the latest contract win testament to the quality service delivery of the UMS contract team.
The partnership between Western Sydney Parklands Trust and UMS is a great example of how our broader experience and professionalism in open space maintenance is being utilised to assist in the management of Parkland assets.
