Land Development

The Mackay / Whitsunday region is growing rapidly and we are proud to have been involved in many of the subdivision and development works that have contributed to its expansion. We provide design, documentation and certification services at each stage of the development process, and can assist first-time developers through to the very experienced.

We manage all aspects of your development application to make the process as smooth as possible. With experience in urban, rural, residential, commercial and industrial developments, our services include conceptual design and engineering reports, detailed design and documentation (including all council application processes), contract administration, and construction supervision and certification.

Urban Development

PCE is acknowledged as a leader in the field of urban development in the Mackay region.  Urban Development is a large portion of PCE’s business, encompassing all aspects of development from masterplanning to detailed design and certification.  PCE has staff who specialise in the development requirements of the Mackay region, and know the area and authority regulations intimately.

Industrial Development

PCE’s experienced staff are able to apply their knowledge and ability to industrial developments with ease and efficiency – whether it be a multi-stage industrial subdivision, or a small industrial shed expansion or development.  We have had involvement with many of the sites in the industrial area of Paget and can work with the unique challenges presented in this area of Mackay.

Residential Unit Development

With a changing economy comes new housing solutions, and we have seen vast growth in the residential unit development sector.  PCE works on unit developments on many scales – from duplex developments to multi-story apartments. We work with your other consultants to ensure a cost effective solution for you.

Commercial Development

Commercial developments often have specific operational needs – whether it be a new site or the revitalisation of an existing one. PCE takes the time to understand the specific site requirements of each commercial project, and can work with you from concept through to construction.

Rural Residential Development

PCE is able to apply its civil design ability to all types of development projects, including the unique challenges presented by rural residential developments.


PCE can assist with efficient and economic solutions during the Masterplanning phase of a development, by working with other consultants to ensure engineering masterplanning has been properly considered. This helps to avoid nasty surprises once the design phase starts, and can present new opportunities that otherwise may not be considered.

Small-lot Development

Unique challenges are presented with small-lot developments, which require multi-discipline cooperation from the outset to ensure an efficient development process and the best outcome. PCE have been intimately involved in a number of small-lot developments in the region, and pride ourselves on our ability to think ‘outside the box’ to develop innovative solutions.

Small Scale Subdivisions

Whether a 2 lot subdivision or a 2000 lot subdivision, PCE applies the same high level of quality and work ethic to all projects. We have completed many small-scale urban development projects in the region, and no job is too small. In fact, it is often the small jobs that are the most challenging!

Mid-sized Subdivisions

PCE has extensive experience in subdivisions of all sizes, and is able to work with individual developers on a project that may be the culmination of their life’s work, as well as companies that routinely complete all types of developments.

Large Scale Subdivisions

Very large subdivisions  require extensive planning, in depth engineering on a sub-regional scale and an understanding of how latter stages will interact with earlier stages to achieve the highest quality engineering solutions.
