Land Development


Land development involves the disciplines of planning, civil engineering and surveying. SJE Consulting has environmental planning and civil engineering expertise in-house, and we also work closely with consultant surveyors to successfully deliver projects. As project managers, we are experienced at managing allied professionals in associated disciplines to provide seamless outcomes.

Engineering designs can sometimes be repetitious and formulative however we try to have a pragmatic and creative approach to our work to achieve the best solutions.

SJE is careful not to over-commit our team and we are selective about the type of work we take on. Each project gets our full attention and commitment to be completed on budget and on time.

Doing interesting and varied work attracts good talent and our SJE team is highly skilled.

We encourage continuous training and learning for all our people to ensure we can provide state-of -the-art solutions and outcomes.

We work on projects collaboratively, as a team, to utilise the collective wisdom of our people.

We like challenges and we are only as good as our last job or project.

Land Management

Our team is professionally qualified in the areas of Civil and Structural Engineering, Environmental Management and Planning and Project Management.

We are a highly motivated and imaginative team with a culture that encourages innovative outcomes. Our flexible structure and style of management creates an environment where we can offer and encourage truly diverse roles for members of the SJE Consulting team.

SJE Consulting has worked on smaller-scale land development projects for large private companies, as well as large-scale subdivisions of 1000+ lots for large corporate companies such as the Devine Group and Abacus Property.

At SJE Consulting, we pride ourselves on establishing strong and ongoing working relationships with our clients and providing outstanding customer service.

We have worked with a broad range of clients including government authorities, councils, institutions, and public and private companies, to deliver innovative, cost-effective and practical engineering solutions.

“We have found SJE Consulting to be very competent and professional in residential design and supervision work and we can recommend them to others for similar type subdivisions. Our Brooklyn Fields Estate will ultimately involve approximately 1100 lots.”

Brooklyn Fields Estate Thurgoona

Civil engineering concepts, designs and development application submissions have been developed for the first five stages of this 1100 lot project. We worked to provide a high-quality development that provides for an active lifestyle, nestled in local environmental lands, and the convenience of being so close to town and the freeway.

The project has been particularly challenging as the site is located between two creeks and is surrounded by environmental land. We have navigated three main environmental challenges:

  • the seasonal wetland is listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
  • cultural heritage studies requiring salvage and consultation with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEM)
  • ensuring the protection of Sloane’s Froglet (working with the OEH).

The latter was a new issue for all parties, including the OEH. The solution we designed incorporated basins for the Froglets into the stormwater management system. Our work is being used to guide all future subdivisions in the region.
