The Sands Estate, Tannum Sands, Queensland.

Biofilta has completed its first project in north Queensland at The Sands Estate, Tannum Sands.

The Sands Estate is located approximately 5km south of the town of Tannum Sands. The development site is generally located between Wild Cattle Creek to the northeast, and Tannum Sands Road to the west. The overall site area proposed for development is approximately 340ha including about 77ha designated as conservation area. The site is located within 7km of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and therefore potential impacts of stormwater runoff are of key significance.

Lyons Capital chose Biofilta for its specialist expertise in precinct scale, state of the art stormwater treatment systems employing robust treatment techniques to remove pollutants from development runoff to Best Practice standards.

With the Biofilta Systems, the developer was able to fast track environmental approvals with the Federal and State Authorities who were impressed with the protection to downstream environments offered with the design.
