Barrie Green and Associates
Barrie Green and Associates had its beginnings in 1974 when Barrie Green became registered and established a private practice in Dural and was involved in large subdivisions in the Hunter Valley and Forster areas, until a credit squeeze affected the operations of the business. Barrie Green began working for the Department of Main Roads and after spending time in the Goulburn and Southern areas of the 4 state returned to a Dural base in 1979.
The private practice was continued in the area on a part time basis. Whilst Barrie was rapidly promoted within the Department of Main Roads to manager of the Survey Control Group and the Senior Surveyor in the Road Design Section, until his resignation in 1991. Barrie Green then devote his full time efforts to the Dural Office and broadened the expertise to both assisting developers and also developing land himself, where some 120 lots were developed in Sydney, Central Coast and Blue Mountains areas.
Green Geomatic Group Pty Ltd incorporating Barrie Green and Associates grew to a point that required it to establish a sp4ecialised division for high rise building construction in the Sydney CBD and other areas in 2000, driven in part by the construction required for the Sydney Olympics.
In 2001 after successfully establishing an office in Five Dock for the high rise sector of the business a decision was made to expand to Northern NSW and in order to facilitate this Brown and Haan surveying at Murwillumbah was purchased and became a satellite office of Green Geomatic Group. Brown and Haan surveying was established in 1951.
In 2002 an expansion of the northern sector of the business was undertaken with the purchase of McLauchlan Surveying in Tweed Heads, which is a business which began in 1974. After the purchase of this business it was decided to create separate companies which ran the Northern and Southern business and to establish a third company which ran the High Rise sector of the business as there was now some 25 surveyors employed and an overall staff of 45. The companies Landsurv Pty Ltd and StrataSurv Pty Ltd were created.
In 2006 the High Rise sector of the business was further expanded after the purchase of McElwee and Associates at Newcastle by StrataSurv Pty Ltd.
Green Geomatic Group which now employs six surveyors and a total staff of 10 with state of the art Robotic Theadolites and GPS Survey equipment services the whole of the Sydney area and eastern seaboard from Newcastle to Wollongong from its centrally located office at Dural.
