Ikea Stormwater Detention


Slacks Creek, Queensland, Australia

Ikea Stormwater Detention

The constructed wetland formed within the Slacks Creek floodplain provides both visual amenity and water quality treatment. Calibre Consulting completed the water sensitive urban design for the environmental award-winning development.
The water sensitive design incorporates stormwater quality controls (wetland, bio filtration basins, bio retention trenches, and gross pollutant traps) and rainwater harvesting for on-site usage. To deliver this solution, our team undertook a flood study, design of mitigation works, stormwater quality control, and integrated water cycle management.
