The Cardno group of companies offer clients a wide range of services in the fields of local government engineering and water cycle management in addition to civil and structural engineering and project management.  

Cardno has a wide range of skills but in particular specialises in the fields of water resources, water cycle management and environmental engineering and management and pollution control.  It has undertaken a wide range of hydro-environmental studies in Australia as well as overseas and prepared a number of hydro-environmental guidelines.

Cardno’s commitment to excellence can also be gauged by our receipt of more than 50 Divisional and National Engineering Excellence Awards and High Commendations from the Stormwater Industry Association (SIA), Engineers Australia, Consult Australia and from other prestigious bodies in the engineering industry.  Awards have been received in 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in the categories of  storm water management, environment, water cycle infrastructure, reports, systems and procedures and water engineering software.  

Cardno has undertaken numerous flood and overland flow studies and investigations which utilise our strong skills in computational hydrology and hydraulics.  As a part of a flood or overland flow investigation, comprehensive technical investigations of flood behaviour are undertaken defining the nature and extent of the flood risks in local catchments up to whole LGAs.

We believe that the key factors for success of a flood investigation project are:

  • A team of specialists who have a good understanding of the catchment hydrology and floodplain hydraulics;
  • The very latest in modelling systems world-wide to assess flooding behaviour using specialist modelling packages and innovative post-processing of modelling results; and
  • The expertise to provide innovative solutions in the domain of 1D/2D modelling.

Cardno are also very familiar with Integrated Water Cycle Management (IWCM) and Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) through our formulation of strategies for residential, commercial, industrial and tourism development projects in NSW and the ACT.

The main features of the service we offer to our clients are:

  • tightly managed project teams with a wide breadth of experience in water sensitive urban design, stormwater management, water cycle infrastructure and irrigation which can be supported by specialist landscape architects and environmental scientists when needed;
  • the provision of project team member(s) in Quality Assurance roles who have the expertise and maturity to address the technical, planning and environmental issues that may arise, and
  • a close working relationship with our Clients to ensure that project outputs reflect the Client's priorities, financial and human resource limitations and their pursuit of innovation and technical excellence.

Cardno has a wealth of practical experience in IWCM and WSUD as is demonstrated by our record of completed projects.
