EDP Consultants expands presence in Australia with Newcastle office

EDP Consultants, a RSK Company providing health and safety, property compliance and environmental services, has opened a new office in Newcastle.

The Kotara office, EDP’s third base in Australia, will be staffed with expertise in contaminated land management and remediation, resource recovery, waste management, occupational hygiene, and hazardous materials assessment.

It aims to support the company’s growth and strong pipeline of work heading into 2023, particularly in Defence, Local Government, Development, Transport and Ports.

The opening was officiated by Director of Environment and Planning Division for RSK Group, Sarah Mogford; Managing Director of RSK Australia, Mark Haydock; and Managing Director of EDP Consultants, John Batty.

Managing Director of RSK Australia, Mark Haydock said RSK Australia played an important role in spearheading EDP’s growth plans in Australia.

“The opening of EDP Consultants’ office in Newcastle will provide expertise in the Hunter Region and will support RSK Australia’s plan to increase our presence in the country by eight-fold,” Mark said.

“The establishment of an office in Newcastle creates a new chapter in the life of EDP that will allow our staff to better service our clients in the Hunter Region and build on the success that has been laid with the establishment of our Sydney and Brisbane Operations.”

John said EDP’s goal is to provide a national service.

“This takes us a further step towards realising the dream of providing tailored solutions to our clients through learning and innovation,” John said.

Sarah said the acquisition of EDP Consultants in 2021 was a crucial milestone in developing the RSK Group in Australia.

“It is great to see the team drumming momentum for the growth of RSK Australia,” Sarah said.

“As EDP expand their presence with a new office and headcount, it will foster more opportunities and enhance our market position in the compliance and environmental sectors.

“I look forward to greater collaboration between EDP Consultants and other companies within RSK Australia as we deliver sustainable solutions for businesses and industries.”

Since 2019, EDP Consultants has been active in the Hunter region. The company has been working closely with BGIS, a global integrated facilities management provider, and Duratec, a steel and concrete structure protection and remediation specialist, providing asbestos, hazardous materials, contaminated land and environmental management and remediation support within Defence bases in Williamtown, Singleton and the greater Northern NSW Region.
