At Rescology, we have been fortunate to work with incredible people on different projects around the world and extensively in Western Australia (WA). These enriching experiences inform our approach as a company, to our clients, their projects, and challenges as we strive to deliver excellence and value.

Our values

Our values are: Integrity, Solutions Focus and Relationships.

How we work – our partnering strategy

We assign a key person to your project who is engaged in every stage of your project.

They’ll attend project meetings, contribute to strategy, risk management and help optimize project delivery. Our commitment to seeing projects to fruition every step of the way gives our clients confidence and trust that we will deliver excellence.

At the outset of any engagement, we design a communication strategy so everyone who needs to be included has the information required to perform their role optimally.

Our communication style is collaborative and inclusive. During every engagement we will communicate openly and honestly and with kindness  to enhance our work together. We expect our clients to do the same.

We are resourceful, connect our clients to the right people and provide top to tail professional services for projects from scoping through feasibility to operations.

Our experience working with Indigenous People makes us an excellent choice when these conversations are integral for a project’s success.

We’re known for our ability to engage with key regulatory and community stakeholders. These relationships enable us to add value and enhance the social license for our clients.

We are committed to 100% integrity. We do what we say we will do. If something changes, we will let you know as soon as we can. We ask our clients to do the same for us. That’s because integrity and trust are the essential foundations for the optimal performance and for  the project outcomes we commit to, for our clients.

How we got our name

Rescology’s name is derived from combining the words Resource and Ecology. Ecology being the relationship of organisms to one another and their physical surroundings; and Resources being everything around us, natural capital.
