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.

Based in Alice Springs our dynamic team includes more than twenty five professional engineers, project managers, engagement specialists and data analysts.

Working alongside Ekistica’s established and growing team of renewable and electrical engineers, you will work to further our ability to proactively identify and respond to the opportunities and challenges facing the development of new renewables both here in Australia as well as overseas in both lead and support capacities.
