Earlier this month we participated in the
inspection of one of our previous projects on the Gold Coast. Our
role in the project included an analysis of the overland flow and
creek flooding affecting the site. The proposed design included a
bridge crossing overland the overland flow path. The formalisation
of the overland flow path through the site was also part of our
design. The development is now under construction however the
features which we were involved in designing are mostly complete.
Presented below are some photographs of bridge crossing and flow

Revegetation works through the flow path are yet
to be completed as construction is still ongoing. It's always great
to have the opportunity to see a finished product!
