North Shore

Drainage and stormwater treatment are crucial elements of this design for the extremely flat NorthShore development site in Townsville. Carefully oriented lots and roads, and waterway zones reduced pipe infrastructure costs.

The large constructed wetland and precinct scale bioretention systems that integrate with the existing floodplain vegetation recognised Townsville’s challenging dry-tropics climatic conditions, including long dry periods.
