At the heart of what we do is creating people-centred solutions to complex challenges and opportunities, including preserving our most precious resource – water. Our talented and innovative teams pride themselves on delivering cutting-edge and award-winning water infrastructure assets for our customers.
We’ve delivered critical dam upgrades across Australia to improve the safety and storage capacity of our reservoirs – which our communities depend on.
From the Cotter Dam in ACT and Ross River Dam in Townsville – to the Chaffey Dam in New South Wales and Eildon Dam in Victoria. The impacts of our water infrastructure upgrades can be felt right across the country.
We’re recognised as one of the most diversified engineering service providers to the water, wastewater and agriculture sectors. Beyond water, we’re transforming lives through some of the nation’s biggest infrastructure projects, including the Melbourne Metro and Australian-first Kidston Pumped Storage Hydro Project.
Whatever we face, we think deeply about what we do and how it affects communities. We push boundaries and innovate, gain trust through our actions and whatever the project, we’re in it for the long, long term.
