our history and future

Our history and future

BMT Oceanica’s predecessor, Oceanica Consulting, proudly delivered quality environmental services for more than 10 years. BMT Oceanica is set to continue this tradition.

BMT Oceanica was established as a private Australian company in July 2000, and was initially known as DAL Science & Engineering (DALSE), DALSE had been created by the transfer of staff and clients from D.A. Lord & Associates (established in 1988) when the founder, Dr Des Lord, took up an academic posting at the University of Western Australia.

On 1 January 2013, Oceanica Consulting Pty Ltd became a part of BMT Group, with our name changing to BMT Oceanica on 1 October 2013.

Joining BMT Group has allowed us to focus on building a resilient, independent future based on long-term plans. Our staff and clients have benefited from this change through:

  • enhanced opportunities for professional growth
  • being a part of a global Employee Benefit Trust structure such all staff share in the success of BMT Oceanica and the BMT Group
  • being part of an organisation which focuses on quality and research and development
  • being part of an organisation which puts long-term objectives of staff and clients over short-term events
  • our culture of providing high-quality service in the marine and coastal areas being enhanced by the offerings of BMT Group’s other operating companies
  • BMT Oceanica being backed by the greater financial and management strength of BMT Group
