  • Have an understanding of specifications and materials.
  • Be introduced to construction methods for vegetated stormwater management systems.
  • Understand the requirements for successful vegetation establishment.
  • Understand the issues associated with asset handover.
  • Be provided with checklists and protocols that will inform construction, establishment and asset handover.
