Welcome to Adelaide

We like to say our team in Adelaide is small but mighty. We may not be the biggest operation in town, but we turn out cutting-edge ideas and outstanding results for national and international agribusiness, water authorities, buildings and mining sectors daily. Our water clients face increasingly complex resource challenges, which we’re addressing through irrigation system design and integrated water and wastewater management.

We received a 2015 Global Water Award for the decision support tools project we undertook with SA Water, which provides services to more than 1.6 million South Australians. This work was selected as the Water Performance Initiative of the Year. The project also picked up awards from Consult Australia, the Water Industry Alliance, and the Australian Water Association.

A farming study we completed received the Planning Institute of Australia’s 2015 Best Planning Idea award. Our farm expertise comes in handy given that we’re located right by the beautiful wine country of the Adelaide Hills. 

Our buildings services team are recently new to the office and they apply global expertise at the local level to help South Australia continue to be world-renowned. We take pride in delivering both city defining icons along with smaller developments. For us, it's about working alongside our clients to help realise their ambitions and achieve the best outcomes for each project.  

In addition, our mining team have a strong environmental focus and can deliver related services along with mine rehabilitation and closure planning to our private clients.
