Better environment, better tomorrow

From protecting biodiversity to mitigating climate concerns, navigating our changing environment can be challenging.

Environmental scientists are a critical element of our consulting practice. We have a team of water quality scientists, ecologists, contaminated land specialists, groundwater modellers, and waste management specialists who provide technical expertise to private and public-sector clients. Their passion? Supporting the planning, design, and construction of major projects and initiatives in New Zealand and internationally.

Our expertise is at the intersection between people and the environment, including the development and protection of land, surface water, groundwater, streams, and wetlands.

We take the time to truly understand each project—learning its past, adapting to present conditions, and preparing for its future. So, whether we're collaborating with you on a challenging policy document development, a complex audit, or Council and Environmental Court hearings, you can count on our team to help you find the smartest solution for the project and community it supports.

We go above and beyond to create sustainable projects

We’re biologists, geologists, archaeologists, hydrologists, engineers, geochemists, regulatory experts, risk assessors, and toxicologists. Our roles may differ from stakeholders and stewards, but we all value the land and resources we use. Our aim? To find creative solutions that address your community or project’s regulatory and environmental challenges. Through our partnerships, industry experience, and use of technology, we’re developing new and inventive ways to solve emerging issues, meet regulations, and increase productivity.

We bring together places that make communities feel like home

Transforming land into a residential or mixed-use community—or a public space with parks, trails, roadways, and transit—calls for technical skill, creative vision, and insight into development. We’ve merged this broad array of expertise to create a team of engineers, surveyors, and environmental service experts that can optimise the potential of your land and incubate active communities. By creating unique spaces that respond to the land and the people who use them, we can help you bring your community vision to life.

We help you manage your risk

We’ve seen the challenges that effect your business. Based on a deep understanding of markets, function, regulatory compliance, and best practices, we develop integrated designs to help you meet your business objectives, and we involve all stakeholders and disciplines to promote environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable solutions. Our teams help you manage risks to protect the wellbeing of employees and communities, reduce lost-time and insurance costs, and increase productivity.
The environment is home to every project we work on, so we’re doing our part to minimise our impact
