Hear from our clients

frc environmental delivered everything they said they would, coming in on time and on budget. Their work was thorough and the final report was written in easy to understand language. frc environmental have proven to us that they have vast capabilities and experience, and we look forward to engaging them on future projects.

Chris Campbell

Parsons Brinckerhoff Australia

frc environmental's proposal to undertake the aquatic elements of our Clermont Coal Mine Project EIS wasn't the cheapest - but then it was important to us that the required studies were done by consultants who had the expertise and experience to 'get it right the first time'. frc didn't disappoint. Their report was submitted on time and on budget, and passed all scrutiny by the relevant agencies. That's what I'm happy to call 'value for money'.

Alan Irving

One of our requirements was to find an Environmental Consultant that shared our vision and philosophy of uncompromising quality in our developments. frc environmental demonstrated that their understanding, their attention to detail, personal service and dedication to the task was exemplary.

First of all, our project team and myself are very pleased with the overall outcome, contents and the layout of the report. Though very technical, the report is well presented, easy to read, outlines good technical data, diagrams and illustrations, with supporting phrases. Our sincere thanks to you and your team.

It has been a real pleasure working with all at frc environmental. I will greatly miss your no-nonsense approach to providing excellent client service, as well as the clarity and focus that you have provided for some very challenging technical matters.

Ross Anderson

Department of Main Roads

frc environmental produce well written reports that address the heart of matters contentious. They are responsive, well respected by agency officers, and provide sensible direction in achieving those elusive win/ win outcomes.

Mike Willoughby

Hope Island Resort

frc environmental provided a strategy from the commencement of the project which delivered the most commercial outcome with State Agency negotiations that could be expected. Both frc environmental’s professional approach and respect from peers within the industry was fundamental to our development obtaining the necessary approvals. This was evident in the way that they were able to get both the DPI&F; and the EPA to assess our application in a most diligent and positive manner. Their ability to provide best outcomes for both public and private sectors is outstanding.

Matt Golan


Whitsunday Regional Council has been engaged with frc environmental for well over a decade to monitor the health of the marine environment of our coastal waters. The aim is to chart over the long-term the effect human activity has on the environment, as development and population grows. Dr John Thorogood of frc environmental has steered this research with integrity and has produced a sequence of valuable reports that are noteworthy in that they convey technical findings that are readily understood by the expert and the layman together.

David Warnock

Whitsunday Regional Council

The input we received from frc environmental was invaluable. Most importantly it was always practical and very results orientated. The success of both the wetlands and the riverfront park are a testament to their input.

John Smallwood

Thank-you frc environmental for all of your efforts in relation to the EIS for the Baralaba North Continued Operations Project.
