On Constructions was approached by the SLHD Engineering Services at RPA to coordinate the design and construction of this project.

In a timely manner On Constructions engaged with the many stakeholders in a collaborative way to ensure the project was delivered “On time and On budget.”

The initial phase involved meeting Community Aboriginal elders in order to develop the creative and spiritual aspect of the project.

The two totems chosen were the Goanna and the Southern right whale as these represent the totems of the two local Aboriginal Clans that RPA now sits on. They are the Cadigal Wangal Clans of the Eora Nation.

After many collaborative meetings a design was agreed upon. On Constructions engaged the services of a team of professional contractors to ensure the delivery of an outstanding project.

A laser cutter was engaged to cut out the steel frame of the animals chosen by the elders. These were given to On Constructions in pieces and on site they were them welded together by Maveon Steel.

A landscaping company Ants Landscaping was also engaged to install an in ground irrigation system and to reshape the area with native plants and lawn.

This garden now honours the clans of the original inhabitants of this land and provides the RPA community with a special recreational space to enjoy reflection and a great meeting space. The garden is adjacent to the Mums and babies wing of the hospital.
