Director Statement MICHAEL LAMONT

I believe a good business works hard to give greater value to its clients. That value comes from being at the leading edge in the services it offers. To maintain that edge the business needs to keep abreast of developing trends and technology. Through continual improvement the business can create effective, innovative and sustainable solutions. Could I have imagined the world we live in today when I first started on my journey as a junior surveyor and clearly, I would have to say no. The technological advances in the last forty or so years have been astonishing and we can’t imagine what the future holds.


Although, we can be assured that change is inevitable and constant; standing still is not an option. As Charles Darwin stated, it is the “Survival of the Fittest”. It is important in life to remain agile, to be resilient and to relish the challenges that present themselves to us, whether that is personally or collectively. From my perspective, we are moving rapidly into an era where s p at i a l d at a a n d d i g i t a l i s at i o n w i l l b e c r i t i c a l l y i m p o r t a nt i n constructing a digital earth. The integrity, the accuracy and the currency of the data will become increasingly more important as we become more and more reliant on spatial data for our day to day decision making needs. As a company, we recognise the growing importance of spatial information and digitalisation. The team is already heavily involved in the collection, management and utilisation of 3D data sets in all aspects of the business. Our surveyors, our town planners and our engineers are not only using the data for their own purposes, they are continually looking at better and more meaningful ways to present the data so that our clients and other stakeholders gain a deeper understanding of the projects we undertake. The company pursues this aim through ongoing improvement, upskilling and investment in both staff and technology, we strive to remain at the leading edge in an ever-changing and evolving market.

Trust is built on our core business values and focused determination to achieve sucessful outcomes for our clients. Although the company has been well recognised through numerous awards from both a business and professional perspective, we don’t rest on our laurels. We continually strive to offer and deliver practical, balanced and sustainable solutions that meet the specific needs of the project, the client and the community.

trust is built on our core business values and focussed determination to achieve successful outcomes for our clients.

Space is everything around us, the roads we drive on, the homes we live in and the infrastructure we use every day. The world around us has been given a data point or attribute, that shapes the way we design and develop our communities. Our clients challenge us to change the way we use and occupy space, whether it be the creation of a new subdivision, changes to underground services or the construction of infrastructure to enhance and enrich our community. From the initial data collection and mapping, feasibility studies and environmental reports to earthworks and construction, we work as an experienced, cohesive team to provide an integrated and seamless service to our clients from vision to completion.


Our Growth RDM has steadily grown over the years to now support over 16 staff comprising of professional surveyors, town planners, engineers and support staff. The company offers services in the areas of project management, surveying, town planning, engineering and environmental management. Our company has grown with a single vision of being a vibrant, growing and dynamic company of choice to our clients and employees, which is positioned at the leading edge in the services we offer. We do this by securing great clients with great projects that want great results, employing like-minded individuals and being proactive rather than reactive. With the continuing growth of the company and the call for our services from the broader region, we have now established a regional presence in Ballina and Port Macquarie, as well as our head office in Coffs Harbour; enabling us to better serve our clients from Newcastle to the Queensland border and beyond, including western NSW. We look forward to the challenges ahead and the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities to our existing and future clients.
