NRA's founders have all made positive contributions to professional standards in our industry.
Neil Boland and Des Bolton were among the first environmental science graduates in Australia. In 1984, they established NRA - fired by their enthusiasm for environmental protection through the provision of quality advice to companies whose operations have environmental impacts.
Since then Neil has undertaken or directed numerous impact assessment, strategic planning, conservation, and rehabilitation projects in Australia and South East Asia. Neil served as a Director of the International Erosion Control Association Australasia.
Tim Anderson joined NRA in 1993. He has participated in the planning, design, and operations of significant infrastructure and resources development projects. Tim has a long standing commitment to catchment and reef management initiatives and his voluntary contributions were recognised in the 2007 Cassowary Award.
