AWE is highly skilled in integrating engineering design with urban water cycle principles to deliver sustainable water-sensitive city outcomes. We have demonstrated experience in applying our Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) expertise across a range of projects at various scales within Australia. Our experience ranges from master planning of water quality management strategies to concept design through to supervision of construction.
WSUD strategies are tailored to meet specific local conditions and project objectives. These objectives could be to minimise stress on under-capacity infrastructure through to protecting significant environmental assets.
Examples of WSUD assets that AWE have been involved in the design and/or construction of include constructed wetlands, bioretention filters, infiltration basins, rainwater tanks, infiltration swales and gross pollutant traps.
Our capabilities include:
- stormwater investigation and design,
- hydrological, hydraulic and water balance modelling (1D and 2D modelling),
- water quality analysis and modelling,
- wetland design, and
- stormwater management planning and construction management.
