Project Overview

In 2020 Complex Co was awarded the largest landscaping reserve project in the history of the ACT.

A 40ha reserve that was to be rehabilitated from disused sewerage treatment ponds and bomb disposal range to a feature reserve in the northern suburbs of Canberra that showed both respect to the land, the Ngunnawal people, future generations, and native flora and fauna of the area.

Complex capped the sewer treatment ponds and removed all the ordinance all while keeping the Molongolo River pollutant free.

Complex maintained the site and proceeded with construction in an environmentally sensitive way in that dust suppression was maintained throughout the contract, erosion was minimised, native wildlife was not harmed, and a habitat for an endangered species was created.

Namarag is designed as an educative space where families can play, events/ceremonies can be held, and school children can come and learn of the history of the Ngunnawal land, its food, and its heritage.

Namarag is a truly special place.
