Stellar also has the capacity to inspect and evaluate existing constructed works to take water, against works construction approvals, and alert you to the existence of any non-complying works.

Stellar Advisory Services has an extensive knowledge of the rural water business, it knows how government does business, it knows who to contact in what Department and it has the capacity to assist your enterprise to make better decisions that mitigate your risk exposure and meet your business development needs.
