Project Description

The Challenge:

The Victorian PPP Schools Projects have delivered of dozens of beautiful new water sustainable schools to the Department of Education. We developed integrated water management strategies for each school — we are dispersing and infiltrating rainwater across the entire school grounds. As hydraulic and civil engineers across the whole of the project our role extends from bid preparation and submission to the construction delivery.


Our Solution:

Our designs ensure that the water is available for plant uptake long after it has stopped raining. In this way our schools’ landscaped zones remain cooler and greener for longer. Our easy to maintain, low energy systems enhance the amenity of students, staff and the broader community; promote biodiversity and habitat; and provide unique outdoor play and education zones.


The Results:

  • Enhanced public amenity
  • Positive impact on biodiversity and habitat
  • Water sustainable schools
