Elements of Byron Resort & Spa is a five-star, eco-conscious resort featuring 103 villas dotted amidst 22 hectares of absolute beachfront paradise. The leisure and conference facilities are nestled in three separate pavilions which mimic the sand dunes framing the resort.

The Brief
The client came to us needing Civil and Environmental Engineering solutions for large tourist development in a very sensitive coastal environment.

Key Challenges
The key challenges we could see for this project were flood prone site with high water table. Flood planning levels and urban runoff issues required a well communicated response to flooding and water sensitive urban design solutions.

APP’s Role
Ardill Payne & Partners undertook the Civil Engineering & Environmental Engineering aspects of the project. 

Timeframe
The project was completed in the timeframe 2013 to 2017. 

Budget
The budget for the project was $75m.

Solutions
We overcame these challenges by working closely with Council and the Architect to develop flood sympathetic solutions and a passive storm water treatment train for water quality control.
