Description

Bialik College is a private college located in Hawthorn East. Major flooding has occurred at the school in the past which resulted in multi-million dollar damage claims to buildings and school grounds. Beveridge Williams were engaged to complete a Flood Mitigation Assessment on the college and surrounding site. The assessment confirmed several minor and major mitigation options that could be adopted to lower overall flood risk to the college.

Beveridge Williams prioritised overland flow conveyance and diversion works and gained approval for detailed design of measures.
