Resource Strategies has a track record of achieving successful approvals for large and complex projects. We have a demonstrated ability to obtain required approvals within operational timing constraints and budgets. We focus on delivering maximum project value through the approvals process, whilst maintaining a level of approvals and environmental risk that is appropriate for the client and within statutory and policy frameworks.
We work closely with our clients to identify key environmental risks to project value and approval timing. Resource Strategies provides advice on project design, approval strategies and stakeholder engagement to assist clients to optimise their project value within the statutory and policy framework set by the relevant government authorities. Resource Strategies adopts an integrated strategic approach with each client to manage the environmental approval process from scoping to project delivery.
Successful management of stakeholder issues involves an experienced understanding of the interrelationships between technical, social and regulatory interfaces. We can assist clients to resolve stakeholder issues by developing negotiation strategies and facilitating access to key stakeholders.
