Passion for sustainability within a development context is at the centre of our approach to water and environment planning and design. Depending on your needs, we provide a range of water and environment services, with particular expertise in:

  • Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD)
  • Stormwater infrastructure
  • Floodplain modeling management
  • Sustainability and ecosystem management
  • Water resources
  • Waste management
  • Waste to energy and bioenergy

Client and site specific solutions

Whether for greenfield or infill developments, we work collaboratively with you and across specialist teams to generate solutions for each project’s unique environmental considerations. We combine technical excellence and innovation to reduce risks and both immediate and ongoing costs.

We are EnviroDevelopment professionals

EnviroDevelopment endorsement assists prospective buyers to identify developments that achieve outstanding performance across four or more areas – ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water, and community. As a key differentiator today, developments that demonstrate high environmental standards attract higher premium returns. We are an accredited EnviroDevelopment assessor and can work closely with you to ensure your development receives this EnviroDevelopment endorsement and demands maximum return on your investment.

Residues to Revenues (R2R) benefits your organisation, customers and bottom-line

Our team offers specialist services to help implement R2R systems design to improve the operation performance and efficiency of your existing wastewater treatment plant assets. We specialise in digester upgrade with recuperative thickening (RT-digester) – the best available solution in terms of cost-effectiveness, reliability and performance, use of available space, and doubling of treatment capacity. RT technology is simple to operate, has low power consumption and is compact. Upgrade costs are less than a third of construction costs for equivalent new digesters.

We also specialise in digester capacity upgrade for co-digestion of trade waste – efficient in municipal biosolids digesters and provides additional revenue streams. Our detailed bioprocess knowledge and in co-digestion of trade waste with high concentrations of fat, oil and grease (FOG) provides our clients with tripled trade waste co-digestion capacity, biogas output and gate fee income. This upgrade typically pays for itself in less than four years through net revenue from power sales and trade waste tipping fees. In addition, electricity costs and carbon emissions are significantly reduced.


In my opinion, the strengths of Calibre on this project (Wanju and Waterloo Integrated Water Management System) were the excellent value for money, the desire to be innovative and thorough, and the excellent relationship built up with the Department of Planning, Shire and Department of Water officers during the course of the project and willingness to take on board comments and respond to them.
