Our Environmental services continue to be an important part of our services to our various clients. This area of infrastructure delivery is usually the most concerning for our clients. C&T team’s extensive experience in these areas smooths the way through these processes.
Clients include: Sunshine Coast Council, Gympie Regional Council, Noosa Council, Moreton Bay Regional Council and Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
This year we have been involved in two interesting Environmental projects:
1. Swamp Crayfish, an endangered crayfish was identified in bushland on the Cartwright Village extension project. As a result, a Swamp Crayfish & Wetland habitat protection plan was prepared and the extension design has ensured protection of the crayfish habitat. This fed into the design process with bioretention systems designed to reduce impacts from stormwater.
2. Gympie Regional Council were upgrading the foreshore pathway in Tin Can Bay. Callaghan & Toth assisted Council in the approvals process by obtaining the Prescribed Tidal Works & Marine Plants Removal approvals. The process required changes to the pathway design to reduce impacts to the marine environment adjacent to the parkland.
