One of the world’s leading engineering, architecture and environmental consulting companies, GHD, has unveiled new water science labs and field depots in Melbourne and Brisbane, Australia. The facilities provide a ‘one stop shop’ for aquatic field work, including preparation for water, soil, macroinvertebrate and fish collection.

“This is a unique capability for a consulting company. We run fully functioning aquatic ecology laboratories and field services depots, not only for river health management, but also to support client offerings across a range of environmental disciplines,” Christobel Ferguson, GHD’s Water Science Manager, says.

The Melbourne and Brisbane labs are both fully operational workspaces, including microscopes of differing resolution for identification of macroinvertebrates and other microfauna. Each lab has a wet area for processing field samples and an area dedicated to the reference collection of macroinvertebrates and fish. A storage area houses equipment for field work.

Christobel adds, “We offer a suite of services to clients, including water quality testing, soil collection, on-ground site work, macroinvertebrate analysis and reporting. GHD can also assist other groups in equipment calibration and field logistics.”
