Strategic risk assessment and planning.
We have well-developed methodologies and approaches designed to meet the specific standards and requirements under the varying legal and policy frameworks established federally and in each state and territory. Our approaches are designed to provide our clients with the project-specific advice they need and to ensure their risks are identified, understood and managed in a way that reduces risks and uncertainties during development implementation. We work closely with Aboriginal community, traditional owners and government consent authorities to ensure we have a complete understanding of key issues and priorities of the stakeholders. We also work closely with development design teams and planners to explore design options that can minimise risks and reduce costs and time imposts on the project.
Our large team of specialists and senior heritage advisors take pride in the on time delivery of high quality Aboriginal heritage assessments and reports to assist our clients and support their planning approvals. Our expertise in GIS analysis and mapping work and specialisations in research, artefact analysis and management planning sets Extent Heritage apart from most other consultants. Our capabilities are simply far greater than most of our competitors, which means we can offer innovative and efficient approaches to assessment work that save time and money for our clients. Our Aboriginal heritage and archaeological assessments are undertaken for a wide range of private sector and government clients in a diverse range of industries, including resources, property development, infrastructure, utilities and land management.
In January 2016 AHMS and Futurepast Heritage merged to form Extent Heritage. EXTENT offers the most comprehensive range of built heritage, archaeology and Aboriginal heritage services available within the Australian and Asia Pacific region.
