On behalf of Great Southern Bio Logic, SW environmental prepared the environmental approvals documentation (EPBC and EPA referrals) for the project.
Level 2 fauna surveys at Meelup Regional Park (2015)
SW environmental completed, with a contract zoologist, an intensive Level 2 fauna survey of the spectacular 11.5 kilometre long (~575 ha) Meelup Regional Park. The surveys were carried out for nghenvironmental, commissioned by the Meelup Regional Park Management Committee on behalf of the City of Busselton and Lotterywest. Along with numerous threatened species, many fauna species were recorded that had not officially been found in the Park.
GIS mapping and Visual Impact Assessment (VIA) input for environmental approvals associated with two large scale solar farms in regional NSW (2016)
SW environmental (through nghenvironmental, for Neoen) provided GIS mapping services and technical input into the VIAs for two large scale solar farms. They included the Parkes Solar Farm – up to 240 hectares of ground mounted solar panels approximately 10km west of Parkes in NSW, and the Griffith Solar Farm – up to 120 hectares of ground mounted solar panels approximately 7km south-east of Griffith in NSW.

Environmental and planning feasibility study for a large-scale (150 MW) solar PV project in NSW (2015)
The Australian Government allocated $100 million to support large-scale solar photovoltaics (PV) projects and reduce the costs of PV in Australia. A renewable energy company was investigating the feasibility of developing a large-scale (up to 150 MW) solar PV project through the program in country NSW. SW environmental undertook a high level desktop risk assessment summarising the risks associated with the environmental and planning aspects of the project.
Environmental Impact Assessment of the Forrest Highway and Marriott Road intersection upgrade (2015)
SW environmental prepared Environmental Impact Assessment and supporting documentation for Main Roads approvals associated with upgrading the busy intersection of the Forrest Highway (H057) and Marriott Road, Australind.

SW environmental carried out level 1 fauna surveys and assessment of the 14 ha Lucky Bay Recreation Site, within the amazing Cape Le Grand National Park. The survey and assessment was carried out for Great Southern Biologic to assist the WA Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) in the planning and management of approvals for the proposal to upgrade the car parks, campground and day use facilities.
Environmental Impact Assessments and supporting studies for realignments and upgrades along the Bussell Highway (2015)
SW environmental prepared Environmental Impact Assessments and supporting documentation for Main Roads approvals associated with realignments, intersection upgrades and bridge widening projects between Margaret River and Vasse.
