About Niche

Niche Environment and Heritage is an established environmental consulting company. When you work with us you’ll notice that we do things differently. We deliberately operate a geographically dispersed business model which means we don’t need to include the costs associated with a cavernous corporate space in our charge-out rates. So, when we’re not at your project site or in the field, our team members are working from regional offices or individual home offices.  Our model drives us to employ people who are experienced, self-motivated and disciplined.

So what does this mean for you?

Our experience tells us that our clients need to be heard and expect value for money. Cost management, timely response and a quality product are common goals for all projects. At Niche we understand that our clients and the success of their business is our business. We are committed to providing you with clear, independent, accurate advice and working with you throughout the life of your project to ensure its success.
