DAVEY CONSULTING & AGROLOGY
a division of Davey Holdings Ltd.
for environmental disposal systems on Vancouver Island
Beginning initially with assisting each other on a few projects here and there, Robert A. Davey and his daughter Anita L. Davey eventually joined forces to form an environmentally sensitive research and consulting company. Bob's background as a Professional Engineer and Anita's in science and as a Professional Agrologist combine to create a formidable body of knowledge, useful especially in rural and remote areas.

A graduate mining engineer (1964) with over 40 years metalliferous mining and geotechnical experience in Canada and overseas, Bob Davey retired from professional engineering in 2006. He currently provides consulting expertise on wastewater treatment and disposal systems through Davey Consulting and Agrology and Advanced Environmental Inc., an environmental company holding the Canadian license for Biorock media.
Bob has extensive experience engineering the ground sciences for subdivision design, and designing environmentally sound and innovative methods of effluent waste disposal systems. Analysis of geotechnical assessments and slope studies from photo analysis and ground measurements for proposed mining operations and reclamation of previous mining sites also formed a large part of his experience.
