Technical review panels

Technical review panels

We are passionate about groundwater at AGE and are continually seeking new ways of thinking and modelling due to the ever-evolving environment in which we work. Part of this need to drive the industry forward is to raise the standard of investigations and build awareness and understanding of groundwater.

Placing significant importance on the professional development of our staff to fulfil the roles of expert advisers and technical reviewers, we encourage our employees to share their knowledge in these kinds of advisory and formal panel settings. Our reputation as independent, impartial and trusted advisers has allowed us to participate in technical review panels.

Our experience has given us significant opportunity to speak with all levels of stakeholders within businesses, government and communities.

Our reputation for delivering high-quality outputs with impeccable attention to detail has given us the opportunity to conduct independent peer reviews and gap analysis of conceptual and numerical groundwater models and reports for other consultants within the industry.
