When does a civil engineer need to get involved with a subdivision project?
A civil engineer typically needs to be involved in a subdivision project during the planning and design stages of the project – We’re up there with the town planners! We’re responsible for ensuring that the development complies with local regulations, such as planning scheme codes and policies. By having us involved early on, we can ensure that the design of infrastructure and services can be cost effective, and reasonably achievable to give you the confidence to push ahead. This include the design of roads, sewer and water connections, stormwater drainage, and bulk earthworks.
How can you save costs in your civil design?
Our experienced team not only design these projects, but we have years of experience in actually building them! There are several ways to save costs in a civil project:
1. Bravo Consult provides a fast-turnaround for you to reduce your holding costs and allow you to make informed decisions about your next costs.
2. We optimise your design to reduce the amount of materials needed by using innovative construction techniques and reducing the scope of the project by only providing what is necessary.
3. We have years of experience in actually delivering these projects, not only for clients, but for ourselves too. We work closely with contractors to ensure any cost-saving in the design can be achieved.
How much does a subdivision cost?
The overall cost of a subdivision project can vary greatly and depend on a range of factors, for example, how many allotments you are proposing, where it is, who the service providers are, and what planning constraints might be in place. Our civil engineers can assist in providing a cost estimate for your subdivision project. If you’re after a ball-park, from our experience, a 1 into 2 lot subdivision in South East Queensland will cost you up to $200,000 (incl. everything from planning through to plan sealing).
How much does a civil engineer charge?
Our objective is to provide the most time and cost-efficient service possible, depending on the scale of the project and the potential issues the costs could range vary. To best way to get an idea of what a civil engineer charges would be to enquire with one of our team.
What services do Urban Utilities provide?

Any development project in Brisbane City Council, City of Ipswich, Scenic Rim Regional Council, Lockyer Valley Regional Council, and Somerset Regional Council will require input from Urban Utilities to organise water and sewer connections.
