“I have found Paul and his staff amazing to work with and they go above and beyond for all projects they have done for us. They have produced documents and mapping that I could only dream about having the skill set to undertake. We want accurate and user-friendly mapping and documentation and this is what is being produced. We are all trying to achieve the same thing for the environment, so we look forward to continuing to work with you in the new financial year.”

“Premise have worked with Jacobs on a number of projects, including an ecological site investigation, flying-fox management plan and koala management plan for the Queensland Urban Utilities Lowood Fernvale Sewerage Schemes Upgrade project. Premise completed the ecological survey over the proposed sewerage pipeline route, treatment plant and pump-station sites and provided the assessment report and subsequent threatened species management plans. Our experience with May-Le and the Premise team has been one of confidence. Jacobs relied on Premise to deliver sound information in order to mitigate environmental impact during the project’s construction.”

- Rebecca Powlett, Jacobs consultants

“Premise personnel undertook protected plant surveys, pre-clearance surveys and spotter catcher activities on our development site in Noosa Springs. The development was adjacent to mapped koala habitat so we specifically sought Premise for their local knowledge and expertise of the area. Paul was able to attend to our requests at short notice and, using his knowledge of the local values and approval processes, was able to provide the necessary support to allow the project to meet its timeframes.”

- Rob McCready, Altum Constructions

“Premise has successfully undertaken annual and biannual groundwater-dependent vegetation annual health surveys and Ecosystem Function Analysis (EFA) for Savannah Nickel Mine (SNM) and Copernicus Nickel Mine since 2013. They have also undertaken EFA at newly rehabilitated areas on Copernicus. Premise personnel were extremely competent in their assessments and have consistently demonstrated consistency in their assessments, a critical factor in our annual reporting. They have conducted all field work safely with zero safety incidents.”

- Gordon Low, Panoramic Resources

“We are extremely satisfied with the professionalism and quality of Premise’s work. They exerted appropriate budget control in the execution of project plans and execution goals. I recommend anyone wishing to conduct vegetation, flora and fauna surveys to contact the highly experienced personnel at Premise.”
