In our first tilt at the Lennox Head Chamber of Commerce’s Business Excellence Awards, Planit Consulting has taken out the top gong.

The awards were announced in August 2019 at a gala event in Lennox Head, New South Wales.

Director Ben Gohl said he and two other engineering colleagues merged their town planning and civil engineering consultancy firm with Planit Consulting three years ago.

He said it was “really exciting” to win the local award, and now progress to the regional awards in October.

Planit Consulting employs 11 people at Lennox Head. Local staff are involved in work for ‘mum and dad developers’ through to large scale contracts for private companies and local government. Some of the projects on the books at the moment include the North Lismore Plateau development, the redevelopment of Oakes Oval in Lismore, project management the Byron Bay bypass, sewer and water work for Ballina Shire Council and the design of roundabouts at Yamba for Clarence Valley Council.

Lennox staff are also involved in Planit Consulting projects in other parts of the country, including an 1800-lot residential development in the Whitsundays.

Ben attributed the award to the quality of the work the staff do and the reputation the firm has built.

“Winning the award is an acknowledgement of that,” he said
