Hunter Valley based Environmental Consulting firm VGT, has quickly gained a reputation throughout NSW, Victoria and QLD for providing their clients with scientifically accurate and innovative environmental compliance solutions in environmental, chemical and geological sciences. VGT is an independent consultancy and NATA accredited laboratory and was established in 1998 in response to increasingly complex environmental compliance laws in the construction, extractive and mining, brick and tile production, and manufacturing industries.
According to Director and Geologist Greg Thomson,
“Our clients require a complete business solution to a number of environmental issues. Testing and sampling are only part of our service offering. We find the real value for clients is in our ability to provide a one stop shop that includes environmental reporting, auditing, impact assessments and annual reviews. We are also experienced in liaison with various government departments, and titles and tenure management so we can navigate industry right through what is often a complicated process”.
VGT’s philosophy of providing a personalised, professional and complete service tailored to meet individual needs in the shortest possible timeframe generated their innovative NATA-certified mobile laboratory.
“Our aim is to provide the fastest laboratory service available, while still maintaining industry required levels of quality assurance and control. Our NATA accreditation includes sampling of waters and static dust gauges, and standard sediment pond analysis can be carried out at your premises with results available within the hour”, comments Environmental Chemist, Lisa Thomson who heads up laboratory testing at VGT.
Additional services of VGT also include mining, quarrying and Safety Management Plans, and mining and subcontractor management.
