Construction and Establishment of Vegetated Stormwater Systems

Effective civil construction and landscape establishment of bioretention systems, wetlands and swales is required to minimise costs and timeframes and realise the stormwater management benefits of these systems.

This one-day course provides detailed step by step guidance on the construction and establishment of bioretention systems and stormwater wetlands in order to address the key issues faced during on-ground delivery. It covers construction methods that respond to the phases of development (i.e. civil construction, landscape establishment and house building) and protocols (inspection requirements, sign-off forms) that ensure successful construction and establishment.

Workshop Dates: Wednesday 17th March, 2010 or Thursday 18th March, 2010.
