Cultural Heritage Management
As a leading ESG, engineering and EPCM consultancy, our clients trust in our ability to enhance their social license to operate, by undertaking early stakeholder consultation that is underpinned by respect, fairness and transparency.
Working with Traditional Owners, First Nations peoples, Indigenous Prescribed Body Corporates and Aboriginal Corporations, is seeded in early engagement as it enables our team to deliver benefits for today (across the life cycle of proponents’ projects) and for future generations.
Early engagement underpins our approach to Cultural Heritage Management as it enables us to understand the needs and desires of all stakeholder groups, as well as any existing Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUAs) which have been registered with the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT).
We partner with highly experienced local archaeologists and ethnographic specialists to provide clients with access to an abundance of heritage site data, and to collectively undertake walk-throughs of proposed project sites.
From the Kimberley in the North to Esperance in the South of WA, across central Australia and along the Eastern seaboard – we engage with Traditional Owners and Custodians, Prescribed Body Corporates (PBCs), Aboriginal development corporations and First Nations communities to preserve their cultural heritage and when helping proponents and/or government agencies to deliver projects.
