Natural Resources Engineering

Many of the projects we work on involve natural resources engineering. We are constantly designing engineering solutions that use land, water, mineral and renewable energy resources.

A number of natural resource engineers work for us on a wide range of projects. They collaborate with specialist geotechnical, water and civil engineers, and environmental scientists.


Our natural resources engineers complete a range of roles and tasks, including:

  • Initial concepts
  • Feasibility studies
  • Detailed analysis
  • Assessment of environmental effects
  • Detailed design
  • Project management
  • Construction supervision

As specialist consultants, we often work on technically challenging projects that require protection and enhancement of local environments.

We do such work for a diverse range of clients – corporate, regional and local councils, developers, contractors and other consultants – in New Zealand and overseas.


A wide range of projects require natural resources engineering. We have contributed to:

  • Dams (water supply, irrigation, hydro generation, waste treatment and flood/debris detention dams)
  • Irrigation schemes
  • Water supply systems
  • Catchment management
  • Wind farm infrastructure
  • Stormwater control and treatment systems for urban areas and mines
  • River and coastal engineering for flood mitigation and erosion control
  • Sewerage and industrial effluent treatment
  • Solid and hazardous waste facility engineering
  • Natural hazards management and planning
