Built Environment Collective was recently engaged by the Warrumbungle Council to provide rapid assistance in response to the devastating Sir Ivan bushfire which raged across 55,000 hectares. The incident destroyed homes, fences and sheds and killed a huge portion of livestock in the region.
The fire was declared a natural disaster by NSW Government on the 14th of February 2017 and in response, the BE Collective team were asked to provide a wide range of services in order to prepare a submission for the restoration of fire affected areas of the Golden Highway. Our submission covered the clearing of “Hazard Trees” from the road reserve and making an assessment for reconstruction on any road furniture (signs, guard rails, etc.). Our services included specialist civil engineering consultancy; project and grants management; works supervision and coordination; and submission preparation. BE Collective appreciated the opportunity to provide support and assistance to a community in need.
