The Sydney office, which has operated for nearly 80 years, now employs more than 400 people. Organised around key disciplines including engineering, strategy and economics, environmental science, planning, project management, geotechnics, infrastructure and architecture, our teams deliver innovative solutions for business-as-usual issues or groundbreaking new projects.

Our clients are public and private organisations delivering projects related to roads, rail, water and waste infrastructure, natural resource and environmental initiatives, energy and mining, through to policy and strategy, land-mark buildings and civil structures.

A sample of our work includes Sydney's first desalination plant,  the landmark Gore Hill redevelopment (Sydney's first five-star mixed use high technology park). the Rouse Hill Infrastructure Project (the largest residential recycling scheme in the Southern Hemisphere), the Liverpool to Ashfield Pipeline, and Norwest Business Park.

The Murray

Murray Darling

Improving the environmental health of the Murray River is a concern of all Australians. The Murray Darling Basin Authority regulates the river system. In this initiative the Commission offered to pay landholders who are affected by the release of water from storages.

GHD Hassall worked with the Commission, the community and technical experts to identify the impact of released water on floodplain properties, to develop consistent assessment principles, and to register the impact on title via easements.
