The team at SALT are experts at providing both traffic and waste engineering advice for the development of child care centres.
SALT has significant experience in providing design advice at each stage of the development, ranging from the initial due diligence through to feasibility studies, schematic and detailed design, the statutory approval process, project delivery and custom construction and ongoing traffic management.
Our team understand that child care projects require a collective approach to achieve the best possible outcomes. Above all else we prioritise the safety, longevity and efficiency.


Successfully delivering a new child care centre requires an appreciation for the unique aspects of each project, a sound understanding of council and referral authority requirements, and most importantly the drive and determination to obtain collectively desired outcomes.
The team at SALT regularly provides advice regarding:

  • Due diligence to make sure that a project stands a good chance of obtaining the relevant approvals before commencing;
  • Design of parking layouts to optimise the efficiency of the parking arrangement and to ensure convenient and safe drop-off and pick-up for children;
  • Assessment of vehicles access arrangements and traffic impacts including obtaining approvals by statutory authorities such as Council and VicRoads;
  • Car Parking demand assessments including the use of case study data and estimates of short and long-stay parking demands;
    Signage and line marking plans;
  • Traffic Impact Assessment Reports to accompany the town planning submission;
  • Construction traffic management plans and approvals; and
  • Waste Management Plans including waste generation estimates, collection arrangements and design of bin storage facilities.
