With the site located in a citywide waterway corridor, prone to deep flooding from the Brisbane River and its current assess permissions removed given its closeness to a Centenary Motorway off ramp, it was of little surprise that the previous nine development applications had failed to meet the criteria for approval.
Enter Inertia and our team of flood and civil engineering experts.
We were able to use 2d flood modelling to demonstrate this innovative design would not cause any adverse flood impacts to its surroundings and minimise structural damage on site during and after a flood event. By introducing a new access point over the local waterway we were able to develop a detailed emergency management plan that will maintain safety to people and avoid significant adverse effects on the natural environment.
Inertia will now be working across the civil design documentation and construction supervision as this exciting project comes to life in Brisbane’s western suburbs.
