Scone Sales Yard
SSI conducted a process audit to establish management techniques for wastewater, solid waste and water. The outcomes identified included the reduction of potable water consumption, identification of opportunities for reticulation with rainwater, treated stormwater, treated wastewater reuse. Alternative waste solids applications such as composting or anaerobic digestion were assessed for feasibility.
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC)

Ongoing work includes feasibility and scoping studies for the New Parallel Runway.
The Concourse Chatswood Flood Mitigation & CBD Stormwater Recycling Scheme
SSI was the consultant engaged by Willoughby City Council in Chatswood NSW to incorporate a flood mitigation scheme and a stormwater harvesting and reuse scheme. The schemes delivered non-potable water of a suitable quality for use within the development.

SSI was engaged by BP Blacksoil to replace the existing on site Wastewater Treatment Plant. Recycled water was used in a dual reticulation system to supplement water used for toilet flushing. MEDLI modelling was used to negotiate a reduced irrigation area.
The Papua New Guinea (PNG) Permanent Facilities Compound (PFC) is an aspect of the broader PNG Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project to commercialise gas reserve available within PNG. Exxon Mobil designed and installed the PFC as a permanent office, support centre and community facility for those working within the PNG LNG projects. The compound is located in Port Moresby and includes wastewater and recycled water treatment, water reuse and diesel fuel supply for light vehicles and generators.
