We provided structural and flood engineering services, including 2D modelling, for this new home in Hawthorne. The property was flagged by Council to be susceptible to flooding from the Brisbane River, storm tide and overland flow flooding. This had the potential to impact the design of the home, driveway and pool.
Our local knowledge of flood levels in the area and Council flood codes enabled us to ensure that the home did not have to be raised higher than the homeowners desired. It also allowed for a reduced driveway grade. A flood report was prepared for submission to Council which assisted the homeowners in maintaining the design they envisioned.
