About Us

Nomenade Consulting is an environmental and project consulting firm created to enable and assist clients in the mineral resources, infrastructure and government sectors to meet their objectives.


We provide professional services to assist clients and partners to identify and address environmental, approvals, stakeholder and community relations threats or opportunities throughout the project cycle – from inception and evaluation, through construction and operations to preparation for closure.


Nomenade Consulting can also assist clients with technical assurance, due diligence and project and study management services (e.g. concept, order of magnitude, feasibility).


Nomenade Consulting has been established by Michael O’Keeffe, a senior professional with a background and qualifications in environmental science (B.Sc (Hons)), engineering (M.Env.Eng.) and community relations (Grad. Cert), with expertise in environmental studies, project management and evaluation, risk management and stakeholder engagement.
