“they are able to blend achieving outcomes whilst being easy to deal with.”
“SLR worked closely with Cowie Environmental Services in undertaking the necessary environmental studies for the preparation of the EIS’s [Environmental Impact Statements] across both New South Wales and South Australia for the Hawson Iron Project. The Project included a new mine development in Broken Hill, NSW, and a 500 km slurry pipeline to Myponie Point in South Australia. The Cowie team demonstrated the requisite knowledge, skills, and experience to lead this work. Brendan Cowie and his team were able to competently manage our substantial input to the EIS by providing clear and focussed communication regarding the inputs and requirements associated with both state approval processes. Their knowledge of these processes was outstanding and assisted in defining targeted scopes and delivery. I would highly recommend working with Brendan and his team of professionals at Cowie on future opportunities as they are able to blend achieving outcomes whilst being easy to deal with.” Peter Smith, SLR Consulting.
Cowie Environmental Services (Cowie) company values are based on being “Committed, Specialised and Precise”.
