Sustainable Design To Protect Our Environment

The work of our environmental engineering team is influential, award winning, and exemplifies best practice environmental, ecological and three waters management.

We use the available natural resources as they were meant to be used; creating urban developments that are sympathetic to their natural environment and tread lightly on the ecological landscape.

Stormwater management has become one of the most important aspects of sustainable land developments. We partner with landowners, developers and councils to transform private and public spaces, facilitating sustainable development while protecting our environment and resources.

Our water sensitive design philosophy guides our approach as we work to improve the quality of New Zealand’s streams, lakes and coastline. We are mindful of conserving and protecting our environment and take care to minimise the environmental impact of construction activities.

We are committed to ensuring our precious land and resources are cared for and protected for future generations to enjoy. Our goal is to create beautiful, sustainable communities that enhance the quality of life for residents.

So, whether you have a small-scale residential development or a major commercial development, we deliver innovative environmental engineering solutions that are highly effective, result in minimal environmental impact and improve the way we interact with the land around us.
