    Sustainable, IT driven asset management

    Changes in Australian climates have had dramatic effects on open spaces in cities. Citywide Open Space has been at the forefront in the formation of effective responses to water shortages and emissions reduction.

    We know how to create and manage sustainable parkland. Our people implement a range of water saving measures in all gardens under our responsibility, including the selection of drought tolerant plants. We help our customers plan for the future.

    Citywide Open Space delivers scheduled maintenance regimes with meticulous care. We lead industry in modern, IT driven asset management and maintenance. Our TRAX system, developed in-house, has been adopted by leading capital cities and major Australian councils. They enjoy the visibility and control that comes from real-time reports on asset condition and scheduled work. We maximise the life of your assets and enhance their performance.
