Swimming Pool & Community Centre Feasibility

"I am pleased to provide an endorsement for Impact Consulting and Accounting Ltd.

Earlier this year Impact Consulting and Accounting Ltd completed a feasibility study for a project involving the acquisition of a recently closed school property and the development of this property into a community hub in Blackmount, a small, isolated rural community in Southland.

This work was commissioned by Venture Southland to provide an unbiased assessment of the options and their feasibility in what have necessarily been difficult and emotional circumstances for the local community.

Impact Consulting were very professional and resourceful in their approach to this work which involved complex issues and uncertainties concerning the Crown land disposal process under the Public Works Act and a number of stakeholders.

Their work incorporated community consultation on several levels, achieved through multiple channels ranging from communicating directly with stakeholders to an online survey.
Their assessment of the relatively limited data was accurate and credible, and the recommendations well-reasoned and sympathetic of the stakeholders’ views and aspirations yet bold enough to provide clear direction for action. The report was written in clear language and well presented. The recommendations from the study have since been adopted and implemented by the Blackmount community.

Impact Consulting fully satisfied the study brief and provided a robust, valid piece of work which was also competitively priced.

Impact Consulting have done work for Venture Southland previously and the recent study strengthens our endorsement of their ability to deliver quality work involving community consultation, data collation and analysis, project feasibility and strategy development."

"Dear Lindsay and Josh

I write this letter to express our appreciation for the work you have done for Coastguard. The project feasibility study report you and your team produced is excellent and is already delivering the desired results as we engage with those who can help make our project a reality.

The way you helped us engage with the wider community in the post-earthquake environment was invaluable. It really highlighted the approach we need to take as we rebuild for the benefit not only of our organisation but also for the wider community. The relationships you helped us develop in the consultation process are continuing to grow and strengthen.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with you both. Your responsiveness to our needs and the way you engaged with all parties was always professional, but also went well beyond our expectations. Thank you.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your company and will do so whenever the opportunity arises. I also hope that we will have the opportunity to work with Impact again in the future.

All the very best."

Dominique Leeming, Capital Campagins Manager, Coastguard Southern Region

I wanted to pass on my appreciation of your input with our client lately.

What I especially have appreciated is your frank approach. You have not only helped our client, but also me, to look forward and not stay frustrated at what keeps happening.

Eastern Southland - Gore Hockey Turf


Project Management - $1.5M Hockey Turf

"...The process involved having to get resource consent right through to managing the build of a $1.5 Million dollar project.  This whole process from start to finish took under 10 months and came in under budget.  To accomplish what was achieved, in less than 10 months, required a very diligent and efficient project manager for which the hockey community is very thankful.

To sum the project up in one of our major funders’ annual report the chairman wrote:  “We saw at year’s end the spectacular development of the hockey turf, which would have to be seen as one of the most impressively conducted projects in the history of the area”.  This statement sums up the view of many within the community and requires no more explaining of the job which Jamie did.

I would have no problem recommending Impact Consulting to undertake management of any similar project."

Vincent Aynsley, Eastern Southland Hockey Turf Development Committee Chairman

"Dear Lindsay

With the wrapping up of our company this brings to an end my immediate association with Impact Consulting and Accounting. I suspect that I have not been the most challenging of clients, however I would like to put on record that over the past few years I have found working with you and your staff a pleasure and they have always responded to my queries in a professional and timely manner and with the utmost integrity.

Thank you for your help and advice.

Yours faithfully,

M. O'Cain"
