About Us

Experience and expertise to meet your needs

Douglas Partners provides understanding and solutions for projects that interface with the Earth’s surface.

Specialist disciplines include geotechnical engineering, rock mechanics, contaminated land, groundwater, geophysics and earthworks. 

We have wide regional coverage, with over 400 staff in 17 branches across  Australia including 13 NATA registered laboratories. This allows staff and resources to be available on the ground to service projects quickly and reliably.  Our specialist disciplines work closely together to provide integrated and efficient service and solutions.

Quality is a hallmark of our work.  Of course we have an ISO9001 certified QA system, however our dedication to quality runs much deeper than this, it is part of the culture and can be summed up by our mantra:  “Keep it Simple, Get it Right, Do it Well”. 

Our success is due to the skills, experience and character of our staff, many of whom have postgraduate qualifications and international experience.  Douglas Partners is owned and managed by its employees, with the ownership spread widely among consulting staff. This is a key element of Douglas Partners’ success, allowing long term stability and providing high levels of staff engagement.

Directors and Principals are directly and actively involved in project management, ensuring client access to the best available technical expertise and practical experience across the company.

“This team is efficient and service orientated and the level of mutual trust between our organisations ensures that Douglas Partners are our first choice consultant.” - David Bobyreff, Director, Minotaur Project Management
