    • Road design and grading (urban and rural)   
    • Road pavement design  
    • Stormwater management (quality and quantity)   
    • Design of wastewater (sewerage & CWMS) for both SA Water corporation and local government authority effluent collection schemes. 
    • Design and documentation for various sized potable water schemes (SA Water infrastructure and private developments)   
    • Liaise with relevant electrical designers for land division power requirements including common service trench, public lighting and service pillar points  
    • Liaise with all service authority and local government stakeholders to achieve engineering approvals.   
    • Tender process documentation, assessment and recommendation for the client.

Urban Boating Marina Projects

Port Vincent Marina  

Herriot Consulting were engaged by developer Paradise Developments as project engineers to coordinate engineering planning, design and construction for the 84 berth marina complex incorporating 70 residential  frontage allotments. This $20 million project was a category winner at the prestigious 2003 UDIA Awards .         


Mannum Waters Marina 

The developer Tallwood Pty. Ltd. engaged Herriot Consulting to oversee this significant 170 hectare development situated just outside the township of Mannum. This evolving project incorporates a pleasure craft and houseboat marina complex with a 600 allotment housing development and soon to be constructed commercial precinct. Mannum Waters was declared a major project by the State Government in 2005 . The marina accommodates 156 houseboat berths to reduce environmental impact and erosion caused by permanent moorings on the Murray River’s edge. Herriot Consulting has been involved in all engineering aspects of this ongoing project with many water sensitive urban design and infrastructure challenges due to its close proximity to the river eco-system.


Urban Community Title & Aged Care

  • Norfolk Estate – Marion           
  • Plympton Mews, Pasadena Village
  • Harris Street, Netley             
  • Sanctuary on Mannum, North Terrace, Mannum           
  • Community Title  - Allenby Gardens

Herriot Consulting has been involved in numerous and varied significant community title and independent living villages over the years for prominent Adelaide developers. Herriot Consulting consider this a significant growth area in the residential development and aged care market. A great number of these sites are  situated within urban infill areas and need to address a different set of engineering challenges including stormwater detention and services installation for the smaller higher density cluster housing alternative .


Smaller Projects

  • Bunning’s commercial development – Littlehampton 
  • Road reconstruction at Ellis Road, Meadows – DC of Mount Barker 
  • City of Playford Council carpark 
  • Construction at Bishopstone Road, Davoren Park  

A smaller development can be no less challenging and  present interesting engineering problem solving whether it be a design for a fuel station convenience store, a commercial car park, a small country land division, wastewater for a local township development or a road reconstruction project for a local government council. Herriot Consulting has had a proud history working closely with its clients to develop services infrastructure for the small business community.


Larger Projects

Eden & Liberty, Two Wells

This project in its infancy will see significant residential expansion of the Two Wells Township with a master planned 3800 rural living and residential precinct providing commercial expansion of the business district. The first stages of this project will commence construction of infrastructure in the coming months.
