We have developed a deep understanding of these elements working around Australia across numerous industry sectors on projects off all sizes, including mega projects in both advisory and directly on site engagements.

Environment
We have been at the very start of many large scale projects seeing all of the initial start up documentation through to contract signing, early works, main works, and the final contract closeout with whole of project approvals and progressive approvals. We understand the complexity of projects in regards to timing of approvals, urgency of critical path activities and the need to find pathways to reconcile the two. The environment and approvals discipline is the nexus point for many disciplines and agencies and it is invariably the most important element in getting boots on the ground. We also know how many moving parts there and making sure approvals and licences conditions and requirements are met, tracked and reported on is critical to ensure an ongoing licence to operate.
