Waterhall - a stunning liveable community on the banks of the Helena River in Guildford, Western Australia sold its last allotment in November 2015

Our vision for Waterhall was to secure and relocate an operating poultry farm allowing this land and the adjoining disused sporting grounds to be rezoned and developed.

Our Challenge

Our challenge was to create a high quality development which adopted new urbanism principles along the foreshore of the Helena River, including world-class stormwater management principles and an integrated landscape design sympathetic with the foreshore environment.

Our Solution

Our solution was to undertake significant soil decontamination in the area of the poultry farm along with implementing detailed construction and stormwater management to ensure the protection of the Helena River throughout the construction period.
