Soil Assessment

Baseline assessment includes assisting you to take samples, helping you interpret the lab results, and providing recommendations for regenerative use and any ameliorative measures we think might be necessary.

Hydrological Assessment

Slope and contour assessment, estimation of storages/throughputs. Recommendations for strategic utilisation and development of storages and common fluxes such as: precipitation (rain) and condensation from low clouds/fog; surface streams/wetlands; subterranean and soil storages etc.

Market Assessment

Our advisors have assisted a diverse range of clients, from large international organisations to smaller enterprises and sole traders, to develop products and markets, and to design and deploy critical business infrastructures.

General advice/recommendations and downstream troubleshooting is covered by our base rates as below. Other analyses and assessments listed above may incur additional project-specific costs - we will discuss this with you as part of a general consultation.

  • private citizen base-rate $90/hr (discounts may apply)
