How We Work

We pride ourselves on understanding our clients’ needs and work closely with them to help achieve their goals.

We are different because:

We specialise in one of the most challenging environments in the world

ABPmer staff specialise in understanding the marine environment, its physical processes and ecology within. We have a wealth of experience and knowledge of how offshore, coastal and estuarial systems behave which we bring to every project whether it’s a new development or a management measure that is being reviewed. Our people are our greatest asset and, no matter which discipline they come from, they work as an integrated team.

We’re not a traditional consultancy

ABPmer does not fit the usual client/consultant model. We consider ourselves different. Our public sector roots mean that we are used to collaborating with clients to achieve their objectives whilst our size means you will easily reach project team members. We are a specialist marine consultancy employing a range of technical experts, this means we have an experienced and professional team with all the skills you need to work as an extension of yours.

We are part of the specialist teams that help create and advise on policy and legislation

Such is our reputation and status that we don’t just advise on regulation and compliance, we help define it. We are regularly asked to work with governments and their agencies to gather evidence for changing policy and to sit on panels to shape the way legislation is implemented.

We’re nice people to do business with

We really are a different kind of organisation. We are small, non-hierarchical, innovative and results-oriented. We focus on getting to know our clients well, working collaboratively with them and focusing on practical results. We build strong and long relationships with our staff and clients. On average our staff have worked with us for over a decade and our key clients for even longer.
