about us

Ekistica is a professional advisory and technical consultancy firm based in Central Australia with extensive experience delivering innovative solutions to the complex challenges of remote area infrastructure development, across Australia, the Pacific, South Asia and beyond.

Wholly owned by the Indigenous controlled Centre for Appropriate Technology Ltd, and with a heritage of working with remote and regional communities that spans over forty years, our vision is a world where location is no longer a barrier to good technical outcomes: where the appropriation of technology enables people, communities and businesses to reach their full potential. We pursue this by providing high quality, independent technical advisory, design engineering and project delivery services to a wide range of national and international clients that include state and national governments, intergovernmental agencies and development banks/organisations, power utilities, community service organisations, large commercial firms and private investment firms.
