Cobblers Run Residential Subdivision - Figtree, NSW
Our client sough to better understand the flood constraint affecting their land, with a view to then conceptualizing appropriate development opportunities for the land. The Club engaged Rienco Consulting to carry out a preliminary flood modelling scope of works to quantify the existing constraint and identify opportunities.
Flood behaviour at the site is complex and has only been studied previously using much older and simplistic methodologies. Flood behaviour has been recently changed throughout Berry by the RMS’s Berry Bypass, which has some important benefits for Berry (in terms of reduced flood affectation) but not necessarily so for our clients land.
Rienco developed hydrologic (WBNM) and hydraulic (TUFLOW) models to quantify design flood behaviour at the site. We are continuing to work through the opportunities with the client.
What our customers say
In my capacity as an architect I have worked with Anthony on a large number of projects throughout the Wollongong area. Anthony has a deep knowledge of local stormwater issues, and in particular the risks and mitigation strategies that should be applied. He is very experienced in the requirements of local councils and has contributed to many successful applications of all scales, from renovations to developments and subdivisions. I can wholeheartedly recommend Anthony and the Rienco team for their practical and professional approach to assessing and solving stormwater related conditions, and as effective advocates in dealing with the council planning controls.

I use Rienco for all flooding and drainage matters on my projects because of their flooding modelling skills and pragmatic understanding of the difficulties of land development. The top-line integrity of their work was demonstrated recently on a very contentious project where the Rienco report passed a rigorous peer review by one of Australia's leading hydrology firms, with no change to the original findings and recommendations. It's comforting to know with Rienco you have that clarity of thinking helping find the best solution, and the confidence that it will be right.
