The water and sewer design for this estate was skilfully executed by Contour Consulting Engineers, who also provided diligent supervision throughout the construction of all civil services.

Immerse yourself in the excellence of Cartrell Rise, where thoughtful planning and expert engineering converge to create a premium living experience.

Eumundi Tennis Club

Contour was the lead consultant that covered the full replacement of the 4 x tennis courts at the Eumundi Tennis Club.

Contour provided structural and civil engineering services in-house, and we outsourced the building certification to our long-term sub-consultant. Our pavement design was required to take into account the very poor in-situ subgrade material.

We understand that the construction cost of this project was in the vicinity of $750,000.

The Sheds at Brendale

“The Sheds” is a contemporary foodie facility, which will ultimately provide an outlet to boutique retailers in one location in the heart of Brendale. Contour have great pride in being apart of this innovative project, which will form a landmark development in this industrial area.

Contour’s RPEQ Engineers undertook the design and supervision of the concrete footings – the position of the footings constrained by old infrastructure and degraded pipework, due to the demolition of the old industrial sheds – and structural inspections of the portal frames, certifying the product at completion of works.

Finally, Contour obtained the legislative approvals from Unitywater via the Accreditation and Certification Scheme, allowing us to dictate the timing associated with the water and sewer connections.

Horizons North

Contour has provided Civil Engineering services to this 100 lot, $32M residential development from concept planning and approval through to detailed design and construction supervision/contract administration. 

The design was particularly challenging as allotments needed to be purposefully benched to provide slab-on-ground building sites on 15-25% natural ground. The development has received praise from numerous sources.

Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex Soccer Facilities Construction Stage 1

Contour provided extensive concept planning, detailed design and construction phase services for this major 65 Hectare sports venue. 

Our Civil and Structural engineering services also included Project Management on behalf of Moreton Bay Regional Council.

The project included numerous significant design factors including bulk earthworks, water harvesting and re-use, sewage pump station, roadways, parking areas, stormwater management and flooding.

La Precinct, Morayfield

This 3 Hectare $25M commercial project included a range of products including service station, drive-thru restaurants, shopping, retail showrooms and service industry. 

Contour provided intensive Civil and Structural engineering services from concept planning through the construction phase works. 

The scope of works included initial feasibility and MCU approvals, through to extensive bulk earthworks, intricate internal roadway and services design, plus external TMR road upgrading.

Gumtree Pocket Court

This niche $4M infill development consisted of 15 small (300m²) allotments. Contour was involved from initial project feasibility and planning, through to detailed design and construction. 

The project required a Plan of Development due to the restricted allotment frontages and narrow road reserve. 

The compactness of the project increased the complexity of the design when considering services, stormwater conveyance and treatment, as well as parking and pedestrian connectivity.   

Kenilworth "Designer Dunny"

Contour provided Civil, Structural and Building Hydraulic design services on the new $600,000 Kenilworth “Designer Dunny”.  

This project was facilitated by Sunshine Coast Council to enhance tourism within the Kenilworth region and attracted in excess of 180 applications from local artists to facilitate the preliminary architectural design.  Maleny based Architectural Illustrator Michael Lennie won the competition and assisted within the detailed design phase of the project.

The new facility has attracted international attention since its opening in February 2020.  Sunshine Coast Mayor, Mr Mark Jamieson, noted what a great entrance statement this facility is to the town of Kenilworth, whilst opening the facility on 17 February.

In addition to the design process, Contour also provided construction phase services to Council on this project, which included on-site optioneering to ensure the design intent was maintained throughout construction.
