Shaw Abrey

Associate, Civil/Environmental Engineer & Ecologist

Shaw is a water engineer/ecologist with a strong passion for water sensitive urban design (WSUD), sustainable water management, waterway health, and urban channel naturalisation. Shaw has a comprehensive understanding of urban hydrology, which formed the basis of his university thesis study comparing urban peak flows from the Rational Method with a linear reservoir model (ARR19). Throughout his professional career, Shaw has successfully completed multiple projects from concept design through to construction documentation. He has also refined his technical skills in AutoCAD, 12D, MUSIC modelling, RORB modelling, and QGIS, and pride himsel fon his ability to rapidly learn new tools. As a driven young professional, Shaw strives to continue learning outside of work hours. As such, he has developed an excel tool aimed at improving computational efficiencies for hydrological, hydraulic, geotechnical, and statistical calculations. His tool also includes design checklists and workflows for using several software packages. Having completed a double degree in engineering (Civil and Environmental) and science (Ecology), Shaw has a passion for ecosystem conservation, climate resilience and integrated water management.
