Infrastructure Planning Analysis

Infrastructure Planning & Analysis


There is always a need to look to the future and ensure the infrastructure we create today is able to cope in 30 even 50 years’ time. At Bespoke we work with the local authorities to design and prepare this infrastructure. We ensure all objectives are met, by use of complex analysis of systems and efficiencies while working with other disciplines.


We have experience in suburb and town water reticulation analysis, including water allocation and quality, Sewerage network capacity and other infrastructure requirements such as schools, airports, shops and similar.


Understanding and being part of these processes ensures that when we give advice, we understand the implications and possible costs that may be involved.

Infrastructure Design


We have extensive experience in delivering the design of critical infrastructure, whether that be a towns water supply, suburb reservoirs, or trunk sewer connection. Our aim is to deliver this infrastructure with no fuss and fast. We understand that these projects regularly hinder development and are always on critical time lines.

QUU Endorsed Capability

♦ Multi Unit Residential  ♦  Land Subdivision  ♦  Industrial  ♦  Commercial  ♦    Small Residential developments

QUU ceased providing design on most sewer and water connections in July 2014, providing “Standard Connection” for simple small scale developments only.

Standard Connection criteria;


Property located within the QUU Connection Area

♦  Existing single lot or two lot subdivision

♦  No upgrade to existing infrastructure required


Other criteria apply and all applications are subject to acceptance by QUU. Please call us for a full list of requirements or to discuss requirements for your project.


All ‘Service Property Connections’ and ‘Network Connections’ Designed are now completed by QUU Endorsed Consultants. C&P Engineers deal with QUU frequently and have a number of active projects with QUU at all times, so helping you with all your water and sewer connections requirements will be easy. We can also help you to obtain ‘Water Approval’ from QUU which is now required for all development applications lodged with Brisbane, Somerset and Ipswich Councils

Sediment And Erosion Control

Business Meeting

We are practicing sediment and erosion control specialists. We are not just an engineer who prepare and erosion and sediment drawing and hope for the best. We create sediment and erosion control programs and then during construction we monitor and adjust the design, to ensure minimal transportation of silt occurs.


This is not where we end; we extend our knowledge of erosion control into our design to ensure the end development looks and stays the way they were intended. You won’t find ugly, scoured out soils or collapsed embankments that make both of us look bad, in any of our development deigns. You will only find stable and protected areas.

Road Design

7001 BERRIGAN STREET REDBANK PLAINS.png

Road design is involved in most projects, we have successfully provide road geometry design necessary to facilitate all manner of project, whether that be an intersection upgrade, subdivision roads or main roads upgrade, we have done it all.

We use a combination of civil programs such as 12d to ensure the right design is achieved for the development. We understand that road design is not just designing a road; it involves the consideration of many other elements, to determine the best road geometry. We are familiar with all Main Roads and Australian Road standards, as well as relevant council to ensure compliance with all the design standards.

Stormwater Management and Hydraulic / Flood Analysis

Flooded-depth-modelling.jpg

Stormwater Management


Stormwater management entails two key elements in the development application process and often decides if the project proceeds or fails to get off the ground. We understand the importance of these two elements, and ensure we are on the cutting edge of technology available to ensure, we deliver the best possible solution for the project.

We have an extensive knowledge of all the regulations and requirements and actively take an interest in the storm water Industry Association. We have taken part in the Industry reform forums and are aware of how engineering design can influence the results.


We are up to date with the latest water quality design requirements and unlike other engineers we don’t just propose bio retention, because it is the quickest way to get an approval (unless that is the client’s objection of course). We have had great success with alternative treatment methods such as storm water 360 devices and artificial wetland and similar biological treatment methods. We also stand for what is reasonable and are prepared to negotiate with the authorities to get the best outcome for the all our development site.

Hydraulic / Flood Analysis


Flood effected development sites are becoming more and more common as all the good development land is no longer there. We have specialist engineers to analyze the flood effect, to determine how the water storage areas can be altered to enable development to happen, without creating any detrimental flooding on neighboring properties.

Drainage Studies


We regularly conduct analysis of existing drainage systems to rectify problems; or augmentation to accommodate new developments.


The Industry standard response to increased runoff from a development site is to provide detention; this is not the only solution. At Bespoke we review our projects to see if there is an alternative more feasible option before proposing detention. In doing this often developments gain developable space and even increased yield.

Subdivision

From the initial concept to detailed design, cost estimating, consent applications, cost schedules, and construction monitoring, we provide a complete service for residential, commercial and industrial land development.


How is a subdivision specialist different from any other civil engineer? Unlike other engineers we never stopped designing subdivisions when the mining boom started. A subdivision specialist knows how to fit all the elements of projects together,We see the big picture, and know how the detail goes together to create the best and most economical solution to suit the site and the developer.


When it comes to subdivisions we have tens of years of experience designing and managing approvals through to construction for projects all over Queensland, Northern New South Wales, and overseas. Whether it be a steep site or a flat site we know the possible pitfalls and what to expect.


We work closely with council to ensure the approval process is smooth and council is on side when applications are lodged. This in-tern ensures fast turnaround of approvals and reduces the risk of time blow outs.

  • RPEQ traffic engineering reports.

Hydraulic Engineering

Traffic Impact Assessment

TrafficEngineering.jpg

Traffic impact assessment or transport impact assessment (TIA) is to assess the impacts of developments on the transport network and identify practical solutions to address these impacts. The majority of planning proposals have the potential to result in changes to vehicle and/or pedestrian movements. A TIA identifies any changes that may potentially lead to reduced levels of safety and efficiency and provides solutions to ensure the surrounding transport network is amended to suit the changes that will manifest as a result of the proposed development.
TIA reports are vital documents enabling planning decisions to be based on the principles of sustainable development. Our team has experience in all areas of TIAs and we pride ourselves on delivering innovative and cost-effective solutions on traffic and transport matters.
