the story so far
The Peter Andrews Story
Peter Andrews, once a well known horse breeder and trainer (Rain Lover - Melbourne Cup winner 1969) is now better known as the man who can repair the planet. Over a 50 year period, and despite substantial set backs and personal loss, Peter has pioneered land repair and landscape function restoration across Australia. His exceptional ability to observe and read the landscape, along with decades of applied research, have provided Australia and the world with a hopeful message. We do not have to accept an inevitable decline in the natural world, something can be done and is being done to repair the land.
how RIA began
RIA was formed on one of the hottest days on record in 2013 with a clear purpose to repair as much land as possible in the most effective and efficient way possible. We had met Peter Andrews at different times and in different ways but we all knew from those first meetings that here was someone who uniquely understood the land and how to repair it. It was up to us to make sure his life's work was respected, built upon and delivered to the world.
we love a challenge
There is no project too big or too difficult when applying our land repair methods. RIA approaches each project from a systems perspective and then works out the individual projects that will eventually interconnect the entire system. This means we provide clients with an understanding of what will be achieved in the end and an easy affordable way to begin.
Smart people have open minds and eyes, know how to use their experience in new situations and are committed to getting things done in the most effective way possible. We are very happy to say that everyone at RIA is very smart.
we are reliable
Getting the work done as promised, on time and on budget, is not just what our clients expect of us but what we expect of ourselves. We utilise the best tools at our disposal to deliver a reliable land repair service with the goal; the best personal experience we can provide to our clients.
we speak your language
RIA knows that our clients are concerned with their business, their needs and getting things done. At RIA all of us have been business owners and know the pressures our clients face. Put that understanding together with our mining, agriculture, project management and land repair experience and our clients can be assured that we know where they are coming from.
we focus on your ROI
RIA understands land repair must make economic sense for our clients. Economic sense not only means cost effective and efficient land repair services but also a commitment to increased fertility, increased productivity and reduced input costs and a demonstrable improvement to the bottom line.
we have done it ourselves
RIA believes in the value of real experience and that is why we have spent thousands of hours and hundreds of thousands of kilometres building our knowledge and understanding of land function and land repair methods.
