Project Management & Superintendent Services


The Urban Coffee Farm was the exciting centrepiece installation for the annual Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in 2013.

The project involved the retrofitting of old shipping containers and the temporary installation of a variety of coffee plants on site. This transformed the red steps of Queensbridge Square along the Yarra River into a hub where the public tasted and learnt about coffee amongst a coffee plant forest.

The site was assembled over a tight program of a week, and was operational for the 17 days of the festival.

Montlaur has continued its involvement with the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in subsequent years.
