Water Technology and Australian Water Environments have joined forces

Australian Water EnvironmentsThe Board of Water Technology is pleased to announce that on the 2nd of October 2017, an agreement with the management team of Adelaide based company Australian Water Environments (AWE) to join Water Technology, was finalised. The joining of these two specialist water management consultants brings together a range of complementary surface water and groundwater capabilities to benefit our local, national and international clients.

“Complementary range of skills and common approach to professional services delivery”

Andrew McCowan, Managing Director and founder of Water Technology, said that “In 2005, Water Technology and Australian Water Environments delivered our first project together; it was the beginning of a great working relationship that has provided many benefits to our clients over subsequent years. The numerous projects we have worked on together since then have combined Water Technology’s expertise in surface water management with Australian Water Environments’ groundwater and hydrogeology expertise. The complementary range of skills and common approach to professional services delivery has provided multiple benefits to our national client network.”

“Two proven expert teams combine a broad range of water management skills and capabilities”

Andrew Telfer, Director and co-founder of AWE, said that “The joining of Water Technology and Australian Water Environments is a great cultural fit for both organisations. Like-minded values, operating approaches and synergies of capability and technical excellence are important elements when considering bringing two organisations together. In this case these factors were paramount. The two proven expert teams combine a broad range of water management skills and capabilities and provide our clients with a nationally distributed, holistic and integrated team of professionals.”

What do our clients have to do?
Nothing. Australian Water Environments will continue to deliver for the needs of the South Australian market while offering new capabilities in Coastal and Marine, Water Quality, Geomorphological and (enhanced) Flooding and Urban Water services while Water Technology will be able to expand its service offerings to include Hydrogeology, Salinity Management, Wastewater and (enhanced) Natural Resource Management and Ecology.

All office locations and contact details will remain the same.
