Our Partnership

We maintain on-going communication with our clients to ensure that projects proceed as required and that output quality is to a level expected by the client. As a small partnership, we guarantee that the support provided at BPP Consulting is undertaken by our professionals. We have limited overheads enabling us to offer a competitive rate for senior professionals that translates directly to delivered hours. We are also flexible, responding rapidly to client requirements with short lead-in times and tight delivery deadlines. Working with fellow professionals ensures outputs are of a high quality as drafts are produced and then peer reviewed in a rigorous fashion. This also enables a fertile exchange of ideas.

  • Any reports prepared by BPP Consulting undergo a rigorous internal quality assurance checks to ensure they are fit for purpose prior to release to our clients'.
  • The choice of consultant to provide support is made in a manner which maximises the optimum deployment of skills and knowledge.
  • Support to in-house teams is provided in a ‘coaching’ style intended to maximise the transfer of skills and knowledge from BPP Consulting to in-house staff.
  • We are able to attend internal and external meetings and work from client’s offices on request.

At BPP Consulting, we pride ourselves on providing a reassuring helping hand in an environment that is complex and often controversial. We ensure our support is sensitive to, and aware of, political and community aspirations regarding the management of waste and production of minerals.
