RPS Provides Winning Services for WA UDIA State Award Winners

04 April 2008 | 3 min read

The annual Urban Development Institute of Australia[1] (UDIA) Western Australia (WA) State Awards recognise excellence across eleven planning and urban development categories. RPS was the environmental consultant for three winning projects in the 2007 awards – including the Brighton Estate project, which won two awards.

In addition to providing consultancy services for three of the winning projects, RPS also sponsored the long-board surfing competition at the October 2007 UDIA State Conference at Bunker Bay in the south-west of WA.

The 2007 UDIA State Awards featured nine winning projects overall (two categories were not awarded). Of these, RPS provided environmental consultancy services for the following winning projects2:

  • Brighton Estate –winner of the Water Sensitive Urban Development category, and also the Masterplanned Development category.
  • Somerly – winner of the Residential Development (250 lots or more) category.
  • Ellenbrook – winner of the Affordable Development category.

The Brighton Estate is a masterplanned coastal mixed-use development about 40km North of Perth, between Neerabup National Park and the Indian Ocean featuring substantial areas of landscaped parkland. The Estate applies Waterwise guidelines to ensure that as many water-saving strategies as possible are employed on the site. It features residential land lots and a village centre with medical, retail, dining, child-care and recreational facilities including specially commissioned artworks. Community sustainability is a strong focus with the Estate having a Residents Association, Youth Council for under-21s, and a Trade Skills Training programme working with Brighton Joint Venture.

RPS Principal, Steve Rolls is the Chair of the UDIA Sustainable Urban Development Committee, which is currently in the process of adopting and implementing the EnviroDevelopment initiative3 for assessment and sustainability of new developments in Western Australia – helping lot purchasers to recognise more environmentally sustainable projects. The EnviroDevelopment Accreditation is supported in-principle by the Western Australia Department of Planning and Infrastructure and achieves six sustainability objectives in: Ecosystems, Waste, Energy, Materials, Water, and Community.

Steve Rolls says : 

“There is tremendous potential for implementing EnviroDevelopment in Western Australia, building on the excellent work of UDIA Queensland. The accreditation system is an auditable process that will provide real information to land purchasers regarding the environmental credentials of their future neighbourhood, and also the sustainability requirements for building their new home."

Works are expected to be substantially completed by early 2009.

 

1 The UDIA is a national industry body representing the land development process in Australia. The body includes developers, consultants, the State, local government agencies, and land owners.

2 In 2006 RPS won the UDIA WA Environmental Excellence Award for Cable Park in Spearwood, and was recognised for its contribution to the Mandurah Ocean Marina Development, which won the Masterplanned Development Award. 2005 saw UDIA awards for Sustainable Urban Development (Harvest Lakes Development) and Water Sensitive Urban Design Development (The Rivergums Estate).
