Some of the recommendations received from current and past clients are presented below:
Harry Warries, Director and Principal Consultant, Mining Focus Consultants Pty Ltd:
I’ve worked with Rob on many studies, ranging from scoping studies to Definitive Feasibility Studies, where Rob was responsible for the geotechnical component.
Rob has shown that he is technically very competent and always very diligent but at the same time not losing sight of the pragmatical aspects of the project.
Rob has shown he can both manage large jobs, as well as provide good technical knowledge and problem solving skills to enhance the study.
I would be pleased to work with Rob in the future.”
Andy Haile, Manager Geotechnical Engineering, BHP Billiton Iron Ore:
Rob provided geotechnical engineering services to BHP Billiton Iron Ore over several years, both in conducting design projects and managing the provision of consulting services through a group of engineers. I found Rob to be very easy to work with, providing a quality service in a diligent and conscientious manner.”
