Sustainability and Renewables

Barker Ryan Stewart is fully committed to delivering environmentally sustainable outcomes to help our communities prosper and grow.

We provide our services based on our detailed understanding of and commitment to sustainable design and practices. No matter the scope of your sustainability or renewables project, we are dedicated to helping you develop cost-effective and sustainable solutions.

Our professional team has a broad range of experience in providing sustainable design services and completing a range of development applications for metal recycling, construction recycling, and e-waste recycling facilities. This has included preparation of a State Significant Development application for a large-scale metal recycler.

We can also provide sustainable water management and water balance services, including wetlands design and rehabilitation and water sensitive urban design.

Our qualified team has worked closely with government bodies and in the private sector to prepare development control plans, local environment plans and master plans, guiding development and planning decisions around best utilisation of energy and renewables.


We are a corporate member and proud supporter of the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) EnviroDevelopment Professional program.

EnviroDevelopment is a scientifically based independent rating system that recognises developments that have satisfied a high standard of sustainability requirements from concept through to completion. These certifications are determined through six key factors – ecosystems, waste, water, energy, community engagement, and materials.

Barker Ryan Stewart can assist by managing the certification process and liaising with the UDIA and consultant team to ensure all necessary criteria have been satisfied for successful lodgement of your application.  

Why should I seek EnviroDevelopment certification?

  • To positively contribute to the future of the environment  
  • Add value to your project
  • Help save ongoing costs
  • To cater for the market demand for sustainability

What type of developments can be certified?

  • Residential (including subdivisions, masterplanned communities, and multi-unit developments).
