Water Sensitive Urban Design

SMEC utilises a water sensitive urban design approach in the planning and design of urban developments in order to protect and improve natural waterways and ecosystems.

Our multidisciplinary team works collaboratively to integrate the management of the water cycle, including stormwater, groundwater and wastewater into urban planning and design projects.

We create functional, sustainable and attractive urban developments that are sensitive to the needs of the water cycle.

Striving to exceed client expectations, we provide water sensitive urban design capabilities at all levels, from residential lots to the largest master planned community at regional levels.

Through our team of urban designers, urban and landscape planners, engineers and geologists we provide a comprehensive water sensitive urban design service offering, which includes:

  • Stormwater management
  • Catchment management
  • River erosion and treatment
  • Sediment and erosion control
  • Wetland design, construction and maintenance
  • Multiple-use drainage systems
