We deliver engineering expertise to mining companies globally through our commitment to excellence and innovative design from a highly qualified team. Our specialized services include geotechnical engineering, geological engineering, water resources engineering, and waste management. We have been responsible for the development of innovative concepts in the field of mine waste management and environmental protection, specifically with respect to tailings disposal systems and heap leach facilities, construction and in-situ testing of soil and synthetic liners, project water management systems, and storage of acid-generating materials.
Together with the Brisbane and Hanoi offices, we employ some 70 staff from a diverse range of disciplines, including civil and geotechnical engineering, hydrogeology, geology, project management, environmental assessment, and technical and administrative support. Through mentoring, we aim to help our staff reach their full potential by engaging them in challenging and interesting projects within Australia and many other parts of the world.
To strengthen our team, we involve staff in various team-building activities, such as staff award nights, office functions, and providing support for charitable initiatives, including child sponsorship.
