Viridis Turns 10 Years Old
It was back in January 2008 that an environmental consultancy called Viridis Consultants was born. The brainchild of Scott Dale and myself. We spent many hours debating names for the company, eventually landing Viridis, which is Latin for green. Being an environmental consultancy this was entirely appropriate. However, soon after establishing ourselves we very quickly established a niche in water management. In hindsight a better name may have been Caeruleus Consultants.
There have been many changes over the years, we've moved to various location from bedrooms to Newstead, the City, Morningside and now Murarrie (and back to bedrooms, some consultants now working from home). However, as we send this out we are looking for a more permanent location for our office. We are looking to purchase a property that we can call home and turn into a vibrant space for staff and clients. We'll keep you up dated on this. We are also in the process of getting certification for ISO 9001. We thought we should walk the talk and get audited ourselves!
We have achieved a lot for such a small operation, some of the highlights are as follows:
risk assessments for 40+ of Seqwater's WTPs
involvement in the Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme
first certified water quality auditor in Queensland and now have a team of three auditors
developed two certified ISO 22000 systems for water utilities
assisting rural and remote utilities provide sustainable water services
We'd like to thank all our staff and clients, past and present for all of their hard work over the last 10 years that has made Viridis what it is today.
