Our environmental services to state government

Our state government projects include:

  • Rehabilitating public land, geotechnical landscaping and repairs, aeolian erosion control and revegetation of degraded coastal areas, riverbank protection, sediment control, soil erosion, regrowth and weed clearing.
  • Providing construction services including fire trail maintenance and rehabilitation, construction of roads and rehabilitation of railway corridors, construction of dams and contour banks, construction of sewage treatment works, river works, fencing construction, ground works in schools and more.
  • Offering environmental consulting including resource planning and assessment, soil surveying and landscape mapping, groundwater mapping and salinity control.
  • Maintaining tracks and walking trails. Our expertise in erosion control, trail maintenance and the conservation of native vegetation make us ideally suited for this type of work. We maintain the Great North Walk from Sydney to Newcastle and the Six Foot Track in the Blue Mountains.
  • Protecting sensitive infrastructure from erosion. We have designed and constructed solutions for flood exposed high-pressure gas mains, erosion threatened bridge structures, exposed fibre optic cables, water and sewer mains, undercut roads and embankments, exposed fuel pipelines, dam spillways and more.
  • Rehabilitation of derelict mines, including specialised revegetation works for contaminated land, capping of waste rock and contaminated material, drainage control works, water treatment, backfilling of open shafts and mine safety works.
