About us

Founded in 2017, Astute Environmental Consulting is a specialised air quality and odour consultancy that provides clients with access to not only skilled consultants, but consultants who are nationally regarded experts. Located in Toowoomba and Carole Park in Queensland, we are ideally located to service clients in Brisbane, throughout Queensland and interstate. To date, we have consulted to clients across Australia including clients in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart.

Our aim is to successfully apply our knowledge gained through years of experience, to provide clients with a solution which best suits their application and meets regulatory expectations. Our philosophy is that when you engage us directly to do your project, you do exactly that, therefore you can contact any of our consultants working on your project to discuss your project.

Our Principal Consultant and Founder, Geordie Galvin (BEng (Env Eng) MEng (Env) MIEAust F.AirQual), has over 20 years' experience in the environmental management of operations ranging from mines through to restaurants. As a result of his expertise, he has been an expert witness in over 60 legal matters in areas as diverse as boat repair, residential subdivisions, intensive livestock operations (breeder farms, layer farms, meat chicken farms, feedlots, calf rearing operations), petrol stations and pizza restaurants, in various courts including the Queensland Planning and Environment Court, the Queensland Land Court and the New South Wales Land and Environment Court. A list of some of the reports, conference papers and journal articles authored or co-authored by Geordie can be found here.
