Our environmental licencing and permitting consultants have an established reputation with customers, regulators and government advisers for service and quality of submission that help avoid the potential for unexpected consequences and financial losses.

Since 1983, we’ve provided environmental services to developers through all stages of a project’s life cycle, from concept, feasibility and design through installation, construction, operation and decommissioning.  Regardless of the stage of development, environmental licences, permits and consents are required to proceed and regulate activities.
