BMT Group subsidiary BMT JFA Consultants is opening new offices in Perth, Western Australia and Brisbane, Queensland to better support their clients’ requirements and provide space for expansion. BMT is a leading international maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy.
The new Perth office will combine BMT’s strategic ports and harbours and machinery consultancy expertise into a single location in Perth by bringing BMT JFA Consultants and BMT WBM into a single office. This move aims to improve their overall service offerings to local government, mining and private sector clients in Western Australia. BebbCart, a specialist ports and harbours cartographic consultancy, will also be co-located with BMT JFA Consultants in the new offices.
BMT has appointed Steven Della Mattea as Manager, Queensland to support the expansion. With over 18 years of experience in civil and structural engineering, oil and gas, and port infrastructure projects, his most recent experience includes the development of port infrastructure for a major LNG project in Gladstone. Steven has also been responsible for the delivery of infrastructure projects at various locations across Queensland and has extensive design and contracts management experience.
BMT JFA Consultants’ new Brisbane office will also be co-located with BMT WBM to help build on the success of a number of recent projects and allow the company to respond more efficiently to an increasing number of business requests on the East Coast.
BMT JFA Consultants Managing Director Tim Green comments that demand for their services has focussed specifically on dredging consultancy, but the company is now seeing an increased drive in demand, both locally and more widely in Asia Pacific, towards integrated consultancy services from concept through to implementation planning, infrastructure design, ports operations optimisation, and dredging reclamation and maintenance services.
