It is targeted at engineers with up to 5 years of experience or those who want a refresher after some time away from the stormwater field. While the workshop will consider stormwater management from an engineering perspective, it will be relevant for: council engineers, development engineers, consulting engineers, land development surveyors, planners, urban designers, landscape architects and project managers.

This seminar will introduce some of the key elements of modern stormwater management and design. It is targeted at engineers with up to 5 years of experience or those who want a refresher after some time away from the stormwater field. While the workshop will consider stormwater management from an engineering perspective, it will be relevant for: council engineers, development engineers, consulting engineers, land development surveyors, planners, urban designers, landscape architects and project managers.

Urban Stormwater Management has changed over the past 30 years from being an engineering led drainage design activity to being a multi-disciplinary activity to achieve engineering, urban design, ecological, social as well as economic outcomes, all within a planning framework.

This introductory seminar will provide an overview of stormwater management and some practical applications of design associated with stormwater management, including highlighting some of the common traps practitioners fall into.

Allan is MWH NZ’s National Specialist for Stormwater Management.  His career has focused around his technical experience includes drainage design, Low Impact Design (LID), integrated catchment management planning, numerical analysis and treatment system design.  He participated in and led teams in multi-disciplinary projects ranging from individual site development (or redevelopment) to subdivision (green and brown fields) and road projects. 

He has presented papers at a number of conferences and seminars and in national publications as well as appearing as an expert witness at planning, mediation and court hearings on stormwater related issues and has also lead internal courses on stormwater training within MWH. 

He was a founding committee member of WaterNZ’s Stormwater Special Interest Group. Understanding and managing the full range of impacts of stormwater discharges on both natural and human environments.  He understands both the engineering imperatives of construction projects, but also the environmental and social (planning) context that the engineering solutions need to operate within.
