Here are some examples of our work. We'll add more as we go...
CAPE PRESTON MINING DEVELOPMENT, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Consents for a major iron ore mine, port, and township development.
The project is in our projects gallery because it's so big. Citic Pacific is a large Chinese company working with Clive Palmer to develop new iron ore mines in North-Western Australia. This $3 billion development involved building a new mine, mining town, hardstand, road and rail links, and a new port adjacent to a sensitive marine park. The project plan for the Federal, state and local consents needed covered three walls of a large meeting room.
GREEN TICK FOR QUANTUM PACIFIC LIMITED, NEW ZEALAND
Independent sustainability certification of household cleaners.
Green Tick is a green credential that provides government-approved, independent certification that a product is truly sustainable according to international sustainability standards. Products must pass a rigorous independent life-cycle audit before being awarded Green Tick. Quantum Pacific is a "green" household cleaning products manufacturer that wanted to prove to its customers (and competition) that its products are truly sustainable. Quantum Pacific has now passed two triennial Green Tick audits, and is easily maintaining its market position even in these tough financial times. More at Green Tick.
OPUA MARINA DEVELOPMENT, BAY OF ISLANDS, NEW ZEALAND
Statutory processing of resource consents and harbour planning.
A proposal to locate a new marina at Opua, in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, led to a multitude of community and commercial concerns regarding its impacts on navigational areas, harbour circulation patterns, cruise ship visits, existing marine farms, recreational sailing, ferries, wastewater treatment plants, and sensitive cultural and historical values. All this while the harbour and water authority were in the middle of preparing a new statutory Regional Coastal Plan for the area. We helped authorities, developers, and the community work its way through all the environmental and sustainability issues, and now the Opua Marina is operating as part of the local fabric of the beautiful Bay of Islands harbour.
M25, HIGHWAYS AGENCY, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
Sustainability assessment for urban road development
The Highways Agency in London was upgrading part of the M25 network, and asked for expressions of interest from contractors. The contractor that won the job was successful in no small part due to his proposal to keep children's playgrounds operating safely in the area while the construction went on. The sustainability assessment completed showed that this social factor was a key element in gaining community support for the project.
