The development of Bungarribee follows a unique masterplan and street design designed to naturally link this new suburb with the surrounding bushland.
We incorporated vegetated ‘eco-medians’ or water treatment rain gardens to filter stormwater throughout the development. Innovative at the time, these rain gardens are now in wide use.
Increased planting of roadside trees to create street boulevards and help cool homes, and requirements for water tanks and solar power for all homes, whilst commonplace today, are innovative sustainability initiatives achieved at Bungarribee.
Our rehabilitation of Bungarribee Creek to protect endangered ecological communities also supported a green employment initiative. These and other initiatives continue to enable today’s environmentally aware, connected and proud community at Bungarribee.
