AVID Property and RPS partner to put new masterplanned community Harmony, on the map

Mapping services such as Google have traditionally lacked the resources required to upload residential address data, taking up to five years to put new communities on the map.

A partnership between AVID Property Group (AVID) and RPS Group (RPS) have created an industry first, putting new masterplanned communities officially on the map.

The goal of new and improved street mapping services is boosting safety, convenience and liveability at communities. Mapping services such as Google have traditionally lacked the resources required to upload residential address data, taking up to five years to put new communities on the map.

RPS identified the roadblock in the delivery of connected communities, offering a service that bypasses the typical process and delivers digitally mapped communities in up to three weeks – a service that was quickly adopted by AVID for its Harmony community on the Sunshine Coast.

RPS Service Line Leader Urban Design Peter Egerton, who has worked on the Harmony by AVID Property Group project since 2007, said he was excited to see the community become the earliest adopter of the new service. 

AVID General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper said the convenience of digital mapping was a luxury that was often taken for granted “Having visitors easily find your house and getting deliveries to your doorstep is a simply luxury new developments often miss out on,” Mr Harper said. 

RPS spent a day in the field to capture data which then took a week to upload and an additional week and a half to for Google to vet the data and upload to their system – totalling a maximum of three weeks. RPS has completed the first round of 1,200 blocks, home to around 3,500 residents and includes the Harmony Café will continue to roll this service out as each stage of the development is completed.

Located in the heart of the Sunshine Coast, Harmony is AVID Property Group’s $3 billion flagship development in South-East Queensland and is the largest masterplanned community underway in the Palmview area.

Set on 378 hectares, Harmony will deliver more than 4,800 homes for 12,000 future residents, catering to a diverse range of buyers – all enhanced by 100 hectares of open space and the future delivery of a new town centre.
