Calderwood Valley is a master planned community sitting between the Illawarra escarpment and Wollongong’s CBD and beaches, 20 minutes to the north-east.

The large-scale urban development project will deliver 4,800 residences over the next 15 years, consisting of residential, employment, retail, education and open space use over 50 hectares. When complete, Calderwood Valley will be home to 12,400 residents and it is estimated to deliver AUD$2.9 billion in development expenditure over the next decade and a half.

Cardno, working closely with one of Australia’s leading international property developers, Lendlease on stages 1-3 of the Calderwood Valley urban development has delivered concept and detailed engineering design. We were also responsible for a water cycle management study and development of the water sensitive urban design strategy and a floodplain risk management study for the nearby Macquarie Rivulet and Marshall Mount Creek.

Cardno also provided a geomorphology assessment, utility infrastructure servicing strategy, transport management and access plan, land survey, GIS support, town and environmental planning and project management of the sub-consultant team.

Stage 1 of 400 lots is complete, incorporating a bridge and a Roads and Maritime Services intersection. Construction of stage 2 and 3 is underway and together will deliver another 1,500 lots.
