20 May 2014 — Global environmental consultancy SLR Consulting has opened a New Zealand office as demand for its services across infrastructure, mining, oil and gas, renewables and waste increase.

Amy Jane Millward has been appointed to lead the NZ expansion and delivery of technical services, and will be based in Wellington.

“SLR is unique in its focus on environmental technical excellence and supports this with the best technology available and proven onsite experience,” Ms Millward said. “SLR can also deliver the robust environmental science NZ needs and I am really excited about acting as a conduit for those navigating a new and complex regulatory regime.”

Business development manager Tanya Hatchman told The Fifth Estate the company’s work load had been increasing increasing nationally thanks to a pick up in infrastructure related contracts.

SLR employs around 200 Australian staff.
