Water Sensitive Urban Design


Constructed wetland systems and water-sensitive urban designs are now being incorporated in new urban developments. Water-sensitive urban design integrates urban planning and development with the whole water cycle management. It provides alternatives to the traditional approach to stormwater, seeking to minimise the adverse effects of run-off.

Warrandale has been directly involved with this process and is proud to be affiliated with some of Melbourne’s most well known water sensitive residential estates.

Our ability to liaise and engage with designers, indigenous plant suppliers, water authorities and a broad understanding of the commercial nature of such projects is the key to any success. Our expertise covers a broad understanding of wetlands, rain gardens, bio-retention systems, swales and roof top greening.

Such projects that Warrandale have been involved with are;
• Lynbrook Boulevard bio retention drain, Lynbrook.
• Silverwater Resort wetland and overflow creek, San Remo.
• Mernda Estate Rain Gardens and Wetland, Mernda.
• NAB rain gardens, Docklands.
• Hawkstowe Wetland Corridor, South Morang.
• Alamanda Wetland Park, Point Cook.
• ANZ Roof Gardens, Docklands.
