Innovative solutions for a 6-star sustainable vision

Our innovative solutions were required to meet Ginninderry's sustainability vision for the provision of new housing products, new road cross-section typology, urban boulevard solution, microgrid, water sensitive urban design strategy, and governance processes.

We managed engineering services, road master planning and opinion of cost for rezoning. We also completed the detailed masterplan for 1,000 dwellings, an estate development plan and development application. Highlights include:

    • 2.5km creek rehabilitation and improvement works to manage urban excess immediately downstream of Stage 1
    • Stream condition assessment and upgrade works to rectify and protect stream from urban excess runoff
      • Sewer masterplanning, feasibility, concept design and planning approvals for 1.5km sewer tunnel and 40m deep vortex drop structure
      • Design of 2.5km access road from Stage 1 to the Murrumbidgee River
      • Endorsed industry leading water sensitive urban design strategy
      • Complex sewer servicing strategy leading to over 2.5km of sewer micro tunnels
