Civil Engineering Design

Sustainable Drainage, Roads, Cycleways and Public Realm

Our team relishes the opportunity to create beautiful and cost-effective designs that embrace Te Mana o te Wai. We use a range of water sensitive urban design (WSUD) / low impact design (LID) techniques to achieve this. Our approach promotes ‘maintenance-led design’ for conveyance and treatment to ensure the right device is in the right place.

Sustainability is front and centre in everything we do. Our track record of creating healthy streets, low emission neighbourhoods and cycleway schemes is unrivalled.

Our maintenance design services cover all road infrastructure assets. We are focused on delivering innovative, sustainable and value engineered solutions. We’re dedicated to helping our clients enhance funding opportunities through multiple benefits such as better walking and cycling facilities.

Carbon Accounting

Climate change adaptation has never been a more urgent issue. We have developed a scalable and adaptable tool to tackle this issue within the public infrastructure sector.

Our practical and tested approach improves the understanding of the whole life carbon footprint of schemes. The method aligns with PAS 2080 – the international standard for managing infrastructure carbon.  The outputs show how carbon can be reduced and managed. This drives low-carbon decision making and helps stakeholders achieve their climate related goals.

Funding / Grant Applications

We have supported local government clients to access more than $10million in external funding over the last 10yrs. Our successful and proven approaches can help you secure funding from a range of sources – regional or central government. We can deliver the entire application for you or work with your team in-house to complete it collaboratively.

Better Business Cases

Our team has delivered Better Business Cases (BBC) for a range of infrastructure projects. We love a complex problem to solve. We work with you from day one, turning opportunities into optimised solutions. We can help you deliver the entire process including:

  • Project identification
  • Initial feasibility
  • Option long-list to shortlist
  • Life cycle cost estimates
  • Benefit appraisal (economic, social and environmental)
  • Benefit-Cost Assessment
  • Multi-criteria decision making
  • Funding identification
  • Business case production
  • Supporting you through the submission process

Peer Review

Our senior team can do Peer Reviews in line with the Engineering New Zealand guidelines for any of the services detailed above. We bring international experience and a range of best practice approaches to the Peer Review process. Reviews can be undertaken at the following levels:

  • Concept / Strategic – Confirm the direction of your project and ensure it meets the key objectives
  • Specific – Ensure suitability of deliverables, assess the impact of new factors, test risks or economic viability
  • Regulatory – Confirm that your work follows relevant regulations, codes, standards or guidelines

Understanding the operational cost of sustainable drainage systems

There is wide industry agreement that Water Sensitive Design (WSD) / Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are essential parts of the urban drainage system to manage water quality and quantity. However, despite these approaches being common practice for more than 10yrs, there is limited knowledge around the long-term operational costs of these features.
