What We Do

What do we do?
We commercialise science.

Our breadth of industry experience is impressive, and it’s matched by the breadth of concept-to-completion engineering, construction and project management expertise within our teams around the world.

Feasibility studies and advisory

Move forward with clarity and confidence

This is the heart of our business: throwing big-picture ideas around in concept development and preliminary economic analysis; solving problems; refining and reducing options during pre-feasibility; and ultimately delivering certainty through robust feasibility studies. Discover how we’ll tailor our expertise and handpick a team to suit you and your project.

Process development and optimisation

Maximise efficiencies and minimise costs consistently

Our process engineers will unlock the science, then save you time and money in identifying and implementing the ideal process and workflow. Find out more about our process and modelling capabilities, whether we’re taking greenfield projects from concept to completion or optimising existing flowsheets and brownfield operations.

Engineering and design

Translate your concept into a ready-to-go plan

Our multidisciplinary engineering and design capabilities enable you to scope, cost, schedule and implement optimised plans with confidence, no matter how complex the challenge. From the study phase through Front End Engineering Design (FEED) to detailed design, procurement, project construction management and commissioning. Learn more about our highly efficient tailored approach.

Project management

Enjoy complete project management peace of mind

Revolving around good planning of engineering, procurement, materials management, project controls and the ultimate construction management approach to be adopted, we achieve the best possible outcome safely, to deliver on schedule and on budget.

It’s a matter of policy that we manage all our projects in a manner that will not cause our employees, contractors or the general public harm or jeopardise anyone’s health. Furthermore, our HSEC strategy ensures we minimise our impact on the environment.

Project controls

Make informed, effective project management decisions

We provide specialised and standardised project services for clients across the industry spectrum, giving you the project insights you need to move forward. From budgeting and accounting, through vendor election, contract negotiation, materials management, logistics and expediting. No question marks. No matter how large, small or complex the challenge. Discover how we tailor our teams and expertise to suit your project and KPIs throughout your project’s lifecycle.


Construction management

Ensure even the most complex projects feel simple

We’ve applied our construction management know-how to an array of resource, infrastructure, chemical and manufacturing projects the world over. Find out how we’ll handpick a construction management team to handle every facet of your project’s construction process with our trademark clarity and proficiency.

Commissioning and operations support

Minimise risk when transitioning from your project team to operations

Our process and design engineers are always part of the commissioning team – it’s the Lycopodium way. We see, touch and feel the consequences of our decisions. This intimate knowledge means our plants ramp up to name-plate capacity quickly and transition to operations seamlessly. Learn all about our comprehensive approach to commissioning and operations.


Process control and optimisation

Optimise productivity, consistency, economy and safety

Our process and chemical engineering consultants will enable you to make the right flowsheet and equipment selections for your project. We’ll identify bottlenecks, constraints and practical solutions that optimise throughput and performance, whether it’s a greenfield project, or an existing process control issue.

Asset management

Manage cost, risk and performance holistically and with certainty

Our team applies best-in-class processes and principles so you can manage cost, risk and performance from concept planning, to asset creation, operations and maintenance, to removal or renewal. What’s more, we’ll work hand-in-glove with your team, sharing our knowledge to help you make better decisions, now and in the future. Read more about our asset management capabilities.

Performance Assessment and Improvement

Performance assessment, management and improvement calls for a big-picture understanding of the diverse factors that affect performance over the lifecycle of an asset, plant or site. At Lycopodium, this understanding is the foundation of our business.


From iron ore, precious metals, base metals, battery metals and specialty metals, to bulk minerals, diamonds and gemstones, the resources sector is at the core of our story and cultural DNA. Over three decades, we’ve delivered projects on time, on budget and on specification. Today, we continue to pioneer new solutions and technologies to overcome the increasingly complex technical demands the sector faces, while taking the challenges of logistics, climate, cultures and language in our stride.

Industrial processes

A linear electron accelerator. A sauce manufacturing plant. A halon destruction facility. An H2S gas production facility. Our industrial processes expertise spans pharmaceuticals and biotech, manufacturing, chemical and energy, food and beverage production and beyond. It’s where chemistry, physics and engineering come together to deliver technically challenging bespoke plants and facilities – innovative, cost-effective, sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions that require multidisciplinary smarts to keep everyone safe and healthy.


With a focus on the railways, roads, bridges and buildings that form the fabric of our communities and industries, we provide civil and industrial infrastructure engineering, construction and management services for clients across the private and public sectors. Working in close partnership with our clients and in equally close collaboration with all business and community stakeholders, we treat every infrastructure project with the respect its life-changing, community-enriching potential demands. We take each project personally.

Delivery Model

Custom delivery models that deliver ultimate value

While our projects generally fit into one of two categories – EPC or EPCM – as your project partner we can scope our services to meet your needs. We’ll tailor our personnel and resources to provide as much, or as little, specialist support as you need, scaling our expertise to suit your project, budget and team.

Whatever delivery model you decide on, our team and resources will integrate seamlessly with yours – a natural extension of your project and team – to avoid duplication of resources and costs.

We’ll ensure you have what you need to extract maximum value from your assets and our capabilities, reducing risk and taking uncertainty out of the equation.
