Communications and Stakeholder Engagement
KISHU recognises that effective communication and stakeholder engagement in the planning and implementation stages of a project is essential, and that building strong relationships with stakeholders, including local communities, is critical to ensuring a successful project outcome.
At Kishu, we develop communication and stakeholder engagement strategies for projects of all sizes, and work with clients to identify key stakeholders to facilitate project implementation and delivery.
Working collaboratively with our multidisciplinary team of experts, we ensure community consultation and stakeholder engagement are effectively integrated throughout the project lifecycle.
Early engagement allows for constructive input during the planning and design stages, and for communities to share in the collective benefits of sustainable outcomes.
We have in-depth knowledge of political and bureaucratic government processes, and our expertise ensures that government objectives are achieved through the effective implementation of public policy initiatives.
We stay up-to-date with emerging trends and sensitive issues through effective and regular communication and engagement with stakeholders, and aim to mitigate and manage any stakeholder concerns before they become a public issue.
Environment Planning and Assessment
These services include: identifying, assessing and managing environmental impacts; managing environmental data within Geographic Information Systems (GIS); ecology services; environmental planning and permit procedures; ensuring compliance with legislation, conditions of permits and licenses.
Our environment planning and assessment services can be provided independently, or in conjunction with other sectors including transport, water, mining, buildings and urban development and energy and renewables.
Natural Resource Management
Integrated natural resource management is essential for long term sustainability of our natural environment and we are experienced at balancing the competing needs of projects with the long term needs of the environment.
Our team of planners, ecologists and botanists believe that understanding and managing ecosystem links and interactions is the key to successful natural resource management.
Water Utility Management
- Integrated water resources management and modelling
- Groundwater and catchment management
- Environmental flow studies
- Wetland management
- Climate change adaptation
Water Sensitive Urban Design
KISHU understands that the contamination of land, sediments, surface water and groundwater is an important human health, environmental and economic issue.
Our project experience covers a range of contamination assessment, land management, sediment, surface water and groundwater projects.
We have the expertise needed to provide remedial solutions to contamination issues including hazardous materials, fuel leakages, landfilling, chemical manufacturing, acid rock drainage, mining, agriculture, waste disposal and radiation.
Through our team of highly qualified environmental scientists, engineers, hydrologists, soil scientists, chemists, hydrogeologists, ecologists and toxicologists, we strive to develop contamination solutions that protect natural resources
KISHU has carried out investigations, studies, design, and construction management for more many water engineering projects worldwide. These projects help to assist flood control and improve water quality, landscape and the diversity of wildlife habitats.
Our depth of knowledge and experience covers all types of river structures, including embankments, spillways, gates, intakes, outlets, and pipelines.
We understand that an economical, safe, durable and low maintenance cost river structure design begins with a solid understanding of the project location, ground conditions, and the properties and behavior of natural materials on structure construction and lifecycle.
At KISHU, we work closely with our clients to find the best project approach. We consider the most cost and time-effective river structure type and tailor each project to ensure design solutions deliver successful project outcomes.
