Sustainable and prosperous communities for the future

Jump to navigation
Across South East Queensland, Cardno has played an important role in the development of the state’s growing communities.

Throughout the decades, Cardno has worked with developers to build some of the Sunshine Coast’s iconic areas, including Kawana Waters since the 1960’s, Pelican Waters from the 1980s to 2016, and more recently, SunCentral's Maroochydore City Centre. We have been providing a range of multidisciplinary engineering serviced mixed in with their very own environmental specialists to ensure developments are completed sustainably with minimal impact to the natural habitat.

We have assisted in the development of unique urban renewal developments on the Gold Coast, including the renowned Parklands, which once served as a 6,000 person accommodation village for a major sporting event and is now transitioning towards a residential community around a ‘Village Heart’, We worked collaboratively to create innovative solutions to complex problems and minimise costs, while ensuring the highest quality outcomes for transformative projects.

Cardno has also helped build communities from the ground up, including the award-winning and most significant and outstanding urban development project in Queensland over the past 25 years, Springfield City Group’s Greater Springfield development. Helping Springfield City Group to build a city from scratch has been a challenging task, but one that has inspired our people to aid in the development of our communities to provide sustainable services in employment, education, health and technology.

Now in 2020, Cardno has partnered with Stockland to design and deliver a world class City Centre of their national flagship project, Aura. Over the last decade, we have worked extensively with Stockland on prior Aura Precincts and a wide variety of developments across the country. This precinct is a significant destination, set to provide support to the already thriving residential areas of the development.

As Australia continues to grow, Cardno’s commitment to building sustainable and prosperous communities for the future will provide regional communities with the same engineering and environmental services as those in capital cities. An international company which is born and bred within the South East Queensland region, Cardno has a unique understanding of the local area, which has been developed over 75 years.
