We undertake various authorisation, licensing and permitting processes for government, parastatals, mining firms, and the public and private sectors in the environmental, water use and waste fields. Our experienced environmental team, through continuing professional development, keeps abreast of all legislative requirements and changes to legislation.

Our professional team of environmental scientists, geohydrologists, geologists, hydrologists, project managers and GIS specialists provides a unique, integrated service to the industry. This integrated approach combines specialist skills that allow each project to be viewed holistically to offer environmentally sustainable solutions for the management of precious natural resources.
We develop solutions for contaminated land projects for clients such as mines, refineries, industry, parastatals, municipalities and the private sector. Our expert team of geohydrologists and environmental scientists can provide practical implementation of remediation activities in compliance with section 7(2)(d) of the Waste Act (2008). By adopting a tiered, risk‐based approach, we can establish whether contamination has occurred and, if so, whether it presents a significant risk of harm. The assessment of contaminated land is required to protect human health and the environment.
