This experience includes first principle / critical thinking and the development of industry leading strategies, frameworks, and solutions. We thrive on distilling issues to their essence such that their simplicity belies their complexity.

We believe this skill is useful to a broader range of clients and projects than may be presented by a solely environmental focus. Anguillid is therefore an ideal addition to your project board, challenge or innovation development team, or strategic working group.

Often sought out to trouble shoot problematic consents, we can draw upon a wealth of experience in this area. This includes that derived from a pivotal role in consenting one of New Zealand's first major infrastructure projects under the Resource Management Act (without the need for a hearing). That success was in part due to the development of the project's environmental management plan, which still acts as a benchmark for infrastructure development. Consent documentation, consultation, assessments of effects, co-ordination of technical inputs, liaison with affected parties, expert evidence, evidence co-ordination and hearing oversight are all areas where we can assist.

Benefit to you: Familiarity with the consenting and community expectations and drivers. Robust, leading edge solutions founded on real world experience that aim to deliver to the expectations of the you as the client, as well as the community, regulators, and contractors. Demonstrable performance in delivering the 'impossible' for you.

Consents and environmental management

Integrated environmental design requires the combined disciplines of stormwater, landscaping, archaeology, noise, visual, archaeological and cultural, urban design, and the interfaces with engineering, safety, and operations. We have first hand experience in both leading design teams and reviewing their outputs on large infrastructure projects throughout New Zealand and Australia. Experience in the facilitation and delivery of public art projects is another of our capabilities. Being mindful of risks, striving to identify opportunities for improvement or better still to make leaping advancements in this field is a key characteristic of Anguillid.

Benefit to you: Multidisciplinary oversight of environmental design by an independent and experienced reviewer; particularly in transportation infrastructure. Ability to identify opportunities to integrate with your longer term operational considerations with landscape, architectural and engineering designs.

Anguillid can assist your teams to explore and develop; everything from a one on one brainstorm to help you clarify your thinking, through to a facilitated workshop for a larger group. We have helped clients develop working relationships between teams, translate strategy into action plans, and nut out project scope or innovations. We can also assist project teams in their constraints, risks, and opportunities mapping processes; a critical step in any adaptive management process. Anguillid has personnel with LEADR Mediation training should this also be required.

Benefit to you: Independent facilitation with broad ranging technical skills to facilitate and if necessary test or challenge your teams.


Anguillid Managing Director, is currently undertaking research into infrastructure engineering at Cambridge University. The research explores what is ultimately an entropic system with the aim of identifying what changes might be required to affect a step change in performance. The outcomes include:

 Better use of existing and new infrastructure;

 Improved productivity, adaptive capacity, and resilience through sustainability performance and efficacy; and

 Effecting and communicating a step change in sustainability practice and knowledge.

The research will focus on New Zealand infrastructure in the first instance, so we are looking for active case studies that we could explore over the next few years as part of this research. The research 'question' has been developed from our experience and from listening to the needs of our clients.

Benefit to you: Thought leadership and applied research to explore and ideally meet client need and to ideally also deliver robust and resilient business, community, and environmental outcomes over the longer term.
