Overview
Learn how to conduct construction hold points assessments on stormwater bio-retention system and treatment wetland assets and streamline the WSUD construction management process for handover.

Hold points assessments are an important part of the construction management process to ensure assets are constructed as designed and fully functional at handover.

This course develops the skills for Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) construction management and hold points processes, with a focus on stormwater biofilter / bio-retention systems and treatment wetlands.

You’ll learn how to conduct critical hold points assessments and prepare WSUD assets for handover. You’ll also gain insights into common WSUD construction issues and avoid or mitigate them.

Real-world case studies, tools and resources, and peer discussions will be used to develop a practical understanding of the content that you can apply to your work. 

By the end of this course, you’ll have developed your skills and knowledge to oversee all stages of WSUD construction and prepare these assets for handover.  You’ll gain a detailed understanding of how to apply this to stormwater biofilter and wetland assets.

Designed and delivered in partnership with Clearwater and Melbourne Water.
