It’s the combination of these skills, along with Energetics’ partnering approach, that provides our clients with a unique and tailored service.
Energetics employs over 120 multi-disciplinary professionals across Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, many of whom are invited to present at industry forums and discuss their insights with the media.
Our forward planning ensures that the identified experts are available and equipped to meet project demands.
