Welarm is owned and managed by locally based environmental professionals.

Managed by WA accredited CS Auditor Warren Dodge, our team brings more than 60 years of experience in the field of contaminated site assessment, remediation and auditing to provide clients with quality delivery of environmental projects. The management team is dedicated to meeting the requirements of clients, while complying with applicable laws, regulations, and (as appropriate) guidelines and industry practices.

Senior members of the management team have managed a broad range of environmental projects across differing state regulatory environments (including VIC, NSW, QLD, NT and WA).
