BMT JFA Consultants, a subsidiary of international maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy, BMT Group, says it plans new offices in both Perth, Western Australia and Brisbane, Queensland in order to better support its clients’ requirements and provide space for expansion. 

Perth office
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 the one office. This will improve its 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 its new offices.  

Brisbane office
BMT JFA Consultants’ new Brisbane office will see it co-locate with BMT WBM in order 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. 2013 saw increased demand for additional design works and studies to assist with overall redevelopment plans of ports.

BMT adds that it has appointed Steven Della Mattea as Manager, Queensland to support the expansion.  With over 18 years’ 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 he has extensive design and contracts management experience.

Tim Green, Managing Director of BMT JFA Consultants comments: “Historically, demand for our services has focussed specifically on dredging consultancy, but we’re 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.”
