This has included work on the Concrete Supply Contract and LNG Jetty Construction Contract for Gorgon, as well as work for iron ore and gold miners (majors, mid-tier, juniors and explorers).

Felicity joined the Leadership Group in mid-2008, with her core focus being State-level projects and continued development of 360 Environmental’s biological survey capability.
