From a small residential sub-division to a master-planned community, WRM provides a high level of expertise in water sensitive urban design, including stormwater, flood and water quality management.
We work collaboratively with our clients to develop urban infrastructure solutions that maximise both developable area and environmental outcomes. Through our work with local government, we have a good understanding of the development assessment process and apply this knowledge to address Council’s key issues of concern.
Our expertise extends to the management of water at the river basin scale to support agricultural development and resource planning.
