Proposed Residence on Flood Prone Land
Our client sought to construct a small residential dwelling on their commensurately zoned parcel of land in Thirroul, NSW.
The site was heavily flood prone and Rienco was engaged to carry out a detailed 2D pre- and post -development flood study for the DA.
The DA process was complex to navigate through as the flood behaviour at the site was complex, as were Council’s recent changes to its culvert blockage policy.
Multifaceted negotiations were required in order to achieve the consent.
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.
