AR & Associates has a long-standing track record in providing expert advice in the stormwater management field. We understand the technical engineering and regulatory requirements involved in the planning and design of stormwater management systems that work. Our team can provide expert advice and engineering services on public and private sector projects.
Professional Excellence with Sustainability at its Core
AR & Associates is a leading professional services provider in the design and management of sustainable storm water infrastructure. Our expertise in civil engineering, green infrastructure and planning is recognised by organisations across the public and private sector in New Zealand and overseas.
We are experienced in providing innovative stormwater management solutions in a wide range of settings: from a catchment-wide basis down to individual site level. We strongly promote the use of Water Sensitive Design (WSD) and Low Impact Design (LID) in our approach. By integrating stormwater into the wider design process for the project, we help clients to achieve outstanding results that reach beyond the stormwater-related benefits.

PUBLIC SECTOR STORMWATER MANAGEMENT
AR & Associates has a strong track record of providing specialist civil engineering and green infrastructure services to councils. We provide technical review of stormwater management and stormwater planning consent applications and specialist advice on stormwater matters to councils throughout New Zealand. This includes technical review and advice on applications for Special Housing Areas (SHA’s) and large infrastructure projects, including a number of Roads of National Significance (RONS).
CATCHMENT MANAGEMENT PLANNING KNOW-HOW
Our services include the preparation and peer review of integrated catchment management plans (ICMPs), contaminant load modelling (CLM), urban stormwater contaminant (USC) modelling, multi criteria analysis (MCA) and consultation.
Additionally, we have been involved in the feasibility and design of many integrated public sector infrastructure projects that address stormwater management objectives (such as stormwater quality, conveyance, flood management and/or erosion protection) along with other project drivers such as improvement of urban and recreational spaces and community-related initiatives. Examples of these include Sunnynook Park, Croftfield Lane, Oakley Creek, and Carol Lee Pond.
