Over the last 10+ years, we have proudly delivered environmental solutions to over 1000 individual projects across Australia. Our highly experienced team has a bent towards solving problems relating to site contamination and to mitigating the environmental risk and headaches posed to our clients.
To return to the office or continue to have staff working from home? That is the question that is facing many businesses across Australia.
LBWco CEO Kylie Bishop explains why she made the difficult decision to bring the team back to the office sooner.
Kylie Bishop has successfully founded and built two businesses. A problem solver by nature, 10 years ago she co-founded LBW co, to provide solutions around site contamination. She also solves problems for her clients through her second business, Incredible U, as a business consultant and mentor.

Jarrod and I are pleased to officially announce that we have restructured our business, rebranded, and renamed our company. We have returned to 100% ownership and are very excited for the future of LBW co Pty Ltd.
Over the last 10 years, our business has certainly seen changes in the industry and in the Australian economic landscape. Each time we have evolved in response, just as we are doing now. The ability to be nimble and responsive is a fundamental trait of a SME and we want to capitalise on that for the benefit of our clients with some new directions and focus areas.
We have chosen a company name and a brand that is fresh and fluid and represents our strong history and our strong future. The “LBW” has been part of our story since 2007: initially LBW Environment Pty Ltd and more recently LBW Environmental Projects Pty Ltd. The “co” stands proudly for the people who make the business successful: our team; our clients; and our suppliers. Consulting, communication, collaboration and co-operation are all “co” words that we want our brand to reflect.
The development last year of EDi, our trademarked system to capture electronic data in the field and communicate in real time to our project management team, is certainly proving to be a game changer for us. We can interrogate the data earlier in the project cycle and develop solutions quicker than ever before.
“EDi is how we solve our clients’ problems and includes a software system for collecting highly organised field data on rugged tablets and transferring it rapidly to our server via the cloud. We create plans for field events in EDi, overlay electronic information we already hold, such as site plans and testing data, then upload the plans to the tablets.
“EDi securely centralises our investigation data; enables the efficient development of environmental intelligence; and allows us to create the solution faster than any system we have worked with before,” says Bishop.
“It will save time in the field and time in the office, which will allow us to offer a more cost effective solution to the client.” she says.
“All of our staff can now send and receive real time data between the office and the field, rather than having to wait for the consultant to return from site and type up hand-written field data. The time and cost savings in regional and remote areas is particularly significant, and our risk for loss of paper records is significantly reduced.
“It also enables our Project Managers to interrogate data collected in real time, to video chat with field staff, and make immediate adjustments to the field program or communicate important information to clients in real time.”
Founded as LBW Environment Pty Ltd.
Over 3 consecutive years 2012, 2011 and 2010.
