Our Team

We are a cross disciplinary team of experts with a demonstrable track record of delivering successful projects on time and on budget. We have acted for the public sector, contractors, sub-contractors, and funders – so we understand the competing objectives and sensitivities of each party and how best to achieve optimal results. 

We came together having worked with and against each other on highly successful projects over the last decade. The team has been selected against best in field criteria and a desire to operate in the positive and successful environment that we foster.
