Broad Acre

Work as Executed

WAE and As Built surveys assess compliance of completed earthworks and construction, to ensure they conform to the original design.

We’ve got experience managing a whole range of projects; like whole farm planning, irrigation system assessment and upgrades, feedlot planning, design, and construction, boat ramps and retaining walls and more!

Who do we work with?

RRID’s clientele includes family farms around the Riverina and Northern Victoria, as well as large Australian agricultural companies such as Kimberley Agricultural Investment, Australian Food & Agriculture, and the Twynam Pastoral Company.

We provide our services to individuals, small companies, major corporations, Federal, State and Local Government departments, developers, architects, planners, drafting services, solicitors, engineers, project managers, builders, real estate agents, property managers, construction contractors, and more!

What equipment do we use?

Our surveys are completed with either Trimble GPS or Total Station equipment, to determine locations and levels to a high accuracy. We can also complete surveys using drones, and although the accuracy isn’t as precise as conventional GPS, drones allow us to survey areas that can’t be accessed via conventional methods.

Once our surveys are complete, we input that data into AutoCAD Civil 3D, which is what we use to draw up all of our designs.

Design

Design

Here at RRID all of our staff are experienced in different areas of design. Whether you have a farm that you want irrigated, a feedlot that you want built, or land that you want subdivided to sell, we have the capabilities and connections that you need.

Surface & Spray Irrigation

There is more to spray irrigation than just the machine, RRID can look at your farm’s unique layout and help you to make the right purchases of irrigation hardware, pumps, and pipes, as well as managing the set up and maintenance of your system. See our Irrigation Hardware Sales & Services page for more information.

Irrigation Infrastructure

Channel and drain modelling, water storages, pumps and pipelines, field grade mapping and design, and all associated earthworks.

Feedlot Design

RRID can design feedlots and everything they encompass; paddocks and cattle-yards, irrigation and drainage, effluence management, feeding systems and food storage, sheds and stables, and anything else your feedlot could require. We can also facilitate the earthworks and construction for your project, if required.

Civil Engineering

As well as specialising in irrigation infrastructure and feedlot design, RRID can provide our civil engineering services for other agricultural, industrial or residential projects. We have worked on retaining walls, roads, ramps, carparks and pavements, drainage systems, and more!

Subdivision

From simple 2 lot to multi-lot, multi-stage estate developments. For residential, commercial, or industrial purposes, RRID have completed subdivisions for tourist resorts, land estates, existing buildings, proposed buildings, bodies corporate, airspace, and more.

Town Planning

Over the years our planning team has built up a strong relationship with Local Councils and Referral Authorities, so we are able to provide our clients with efficient planning and timely development approvals. Our services include pre-application advice, subdivision design, permit- and development- application management, VCAT representation, and community consultation.

Assessments

Assessments

The environment is an important consideration of any development. RRID can identify regulatory constraints that may apply to your project, undertake preliminary assessments, gain pre-application advice and liaise with government departments to get your approvals.

With RRID you can trust that your development meets all its environmental requirements, so your project can keep moving forward.

Native Vegetation

Native vegetation is vital to our landscape. RRID understands the life stages of native vegetation within farming areas, so we can work with you to minimise the impact of your development and identify areas where good-quality native vegetation can be protected.

Where native vegetation will be effected, we undertake preliminary assessments in conjunction with current legislation to identify the best outcome for all.

How can we help you?

  • Native grasslands assessments
  • Native vegetation assessments, including habitat hectares
  • Vegetation offset plans
  • Pre-application advice
  • Vegetation rehabilitation plans
  • PVP process

Environmental Statements and Cultural Heritage

Australia’s environment and rich cultural heritage must always be considered when planning any developments. By liaising with the Traditional Owners of your land, as well as environmental specialists, RRID can create accurate and comprehensive statements and reports relevant to your agricultural development.

How can we help you?

  • Statement of Environmental Effects
  • Environmental Impact Statements
  • Erosion and Sediment Control Plans
  • Environmental Management Plan
  • Cultural Heritage and Traditional Owner liaisons

Flood Studies

Being located so close to the Murray River, RRID understands the importance of flood studies and the information they provide. By defining existing flood behaviour like levels and extent, identifying problem areas, and assessing the impact of climate change on flooding, RRID can help create management plans for developments in flood-prone areas.

Effluent Management Plans

Each dairy has individual needs when it comes to managing effluence. RRID can develop an effective Effluent Management Plan that considers your farm’s individual soil, waterways, volume, individual management options, and existing and proposed infrastructure. We can also complete site suitability assessments to make sure your farm meets your needs, before going ahead with any design work.

Applications

Paperwork and application forms are not something that anyone enjoys. Why not let RRID take this task off your hands? We can assist with pre-planning meetings with government organisations, preparing relevant plans and environmental statements, completing forms and keeping you up to date with the progress of your application.

How can we help you?

  • New pump sites and water licensing
  • Controlled activity approvals
  • Development applications through shires
  • Storage dam applications and approvals
