Firstly, we design roads.
As specialists for structural and civil engineering throughout Melbourne, we can determine the grades of the road, the length of the vertical curves and the radius of the horizontal curves.
Secondly, we design drains.
A key aspect of the building development process, we use established rainfall records of the general area to determine the appropriate design for your drain. Drainage systems for unit developments are generally required by councils to be designed for storms that can occur once every five years on average.
Using various mathematical formulae we can calculate the volume of water that is discharged from the area and determine the diameter and slope of the required drain.
To reduce the risk of flooding, some councils require that the unit development has a detention storm water system. Using the appropriate mathematical formulae and analysis techniques, we can determine the storage volume required and the size of the discharge pipe. We will then design the grade of the driveways and location of the grate-pits and ensure all rainwater discharging from the site is collected into the detention system.
