CMP works with our clients to deliver water engineering solutions for their businesses. We provide a full range of consulting services across:

Our project teams include personnel with the full range of disciplines required covering process, civil, structural, mechanical and
electrical engineering services as well as detailed design drafting.

Our services cover the complete lifecycle of our clients’ assets including:


CMP has extensive experience with planning for water and wastewater assets. We can review existing long-term strategies and projected population growth as well as the condition and effectiveness of existing assets and provide advice on potential courses of action for the future. We work with our clients to identify the preferred options and provide cost estimates to assist with future planning. We take a long-term vision when providing advice on upgrades to treatment plants and transfer networks and can provide feasibility studies for future assets or upgrades to existing assets.


CMP has experienced engineers who can look at your problem and suggest solutions. We can develop concepts into functional designs for Design and Construct tender packages as a basis for detailed design to be undertaken by others or as a basis for CMP completing the design.


CMP utilise inhouse Remotely Piloted Aircraft capability to undertake high level 3D photogrammetry scans on complex projects such as brown field sites or areas where access is poor/unsafe.

3D photogrammetry scans allow CMP’s project team an additional support system during design development by capturing an accurate reference model of the site/facility layout. This technology can minimise potential issues with clashes or the need for numerous site visits in remote regions. These models can be combined with ground control points to greatly improve their accuracy.

When combined with supporting information from licensed surveyors, 3D scans can provide significantly greater detail than as-built documents for reference during design development.

CMP’s capability extends beyond the sub 2kg exempted category permitted by CASA. This allows for flights to occur in areas typically off limits to 2kg exempted category pilots (such as nearby airports or busy airspace).


Our detailed design services cover:

  • System hydraulic analysis
  • Transfer mains design
  • Pumping stations
  • Pressure reducing stations
  • Earthen storages as well as steel and concrete storage tanks
  • Multi-disciplinary treatment plant design
  • Detailed design drawings in 2D or 3D, including 3D photogrammetry scans and laser scanning of brownfield assets to ensure accurate dimensioning.
  • 3D Navisworks models or virtual reality simulations for design review purposes.


Whether the project is Design and Construct or Construct only, we can assist with evaluations of tenders and with any queries the Tenderers may have. We have staff with experience as construction contractors and those who have been part of water authorities project management teams, so we are familiar with the process from both perspectives.


Whether our clients are looking for support for a client Project Manager, a secondment into the Client’s organisation to fulfil the project management role or an independent Superintendent, CMP has the experience to act in that capacity.

We can also assist with commissioning by providing advice on the preparation of commissioning plans, reviewing the Contractor’s commissioning documentation on behalf of the Client, or assisting with troubleshooting.


Whether it’s part of the closing stages of a detailed design project being undertaken by CMP or as a stand-alone project, CMP can prepare new O&M manuals for our client’s assets or update existing manuals. We can also prepare As-Constructed drawings based on redline markups from the Client or Contractor.


Some of the asset management services CMP has provided to our clients include:

  • Asset Management plans
  • Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) to risk prioritise scheduled maintenance activities
  • Master Asset Register
  • Bushfire Rating and Management
  • Sewer Spills Prevention Strategies
  • Chemical treatment regimes to protects sewers.


CMP staff have experience with projects where the removal of existing assets have been required as well as the decommissioning of entire treatment plants. We are able to provide deconstruction specifications for asset removal.

We also have experience with rehabilitation around sludge lagoons and can advise on what is required for land reuse.
