Environmental and climate solutions

As the world faces more complex environmental challenges and public scrutiny on the impact of climate change, our team of environmental scientists are here to help guide and advise regulators and stakeholders across the continuum of offshore marine, coastal zones, rivers and waterways.

We are trusted partners, supporting our customers throughout the entire project life-cycle to ensure compliance, protect the environment and guide project teams to ensure stakeholders are engaged and environmental commitments are met.  We’ll help you understand and mitigate the impacts of the environment and climate on your assets and operations, and we can help you withstand, respond to, and recover rapidly from climate-related disruptions as we transition into a decarbonised future.

In this area, not only do our innovative solutions  help you adapt and become more resilient, but we also help you with the quality of evidence and advice you need to make defensible decisions that satisfy debate, secure a social licence, assess the impact of decarbonisation on your business finance and ensure your project sustains momentum.  Our teams are here to accompany you and guide on the transitional journey to a more resilient decarbonised future in our core markets of defence, infrastructure and maritime.

Our decades of deep sector knowledge and our award-winning proprietary software tools, are informed not just by the insights into the management of data, but by an intimate knowledge of the underlying science involved as well as a practical in-field experience of the issues, from flooding to decarbonisation of defence agencies and government assets and from remediation of hazardous waste challenges to advising on the sustainability of aquaculture.  We bring clarity to the complexity of climate and environmental risk; our priority is to help you to understand, adapt and protect the environment you operate in.

Field data collection

We can provide ecological and biological surveys across:

  • Freshwater environments
  • Catchment and riparian areas (including terrestrial areas)
  • Estuaries and nearshore environments
  • Open coastal and offshore marine environments (including associated with offshore installations)


Aquatic conservation, ecology and restoration

We offer specialist consulting services emphasising quantitative field surveys and modelling and have a long history of providing innovative solutions to industry, government authorities and environmental managers.

Climate risk advisory

As emerging leaders in the field of climate change resilience and adaptation, we work across a broad range of sectors, including state and local government agencies, critical infrastructure, finance, health, defence, and security.

Environmental impact: regulatory, compliance and legal

We can help you successfully meet the requirements of environmental permits and, in doing so, the needs of regulators.

Environmental services for aquaculture

With experience across a wide range of geographies, species and groups, we provide expert aquaculture environmental solutions that are always highly innovative, practical and relevant.

Environmental remediation

Our scientists and engineers have the expertise and experience to solve your environmental and hazardous waste challenges through innovative and cost-effective remedies.

Flooding and hydraulics

Flood studies are an essential first step towards understanding and managing flood risk. They illustrate flood behaviour and risk, quantify the impact of changes to hydrologic regimes and riverine channels/floodplains, and inform planning and environmental studies.

Metocean data management & analysis

We acquire and analyse wind, weather and sea state data to inform design, engineering and operational decision making.

Water quality services

We offer an integrated approach that enables total solutions design for urban, peri-urban and catchment systems. We have a detailed understanding of water quality and behaviour in a whole catchment context.
