Our culture

We aim to provide a culture of professional excellence with quality working conditions and safety as our highest priority.

Our employees work directly with our clients and local communities, responding to the major challenges of sustainable development.

They take initiative and responsibility every day. And our organisation involves decentralised, highly responsive units, which give our employees considerable autonomy to do their work.

We know that the skills and knowledge of our employees is our biggest asset. That’s why we provide a culture of professional excellence and quality working conditions with the highest safety standards.


Our commitment to our people

We recognise that our continued success is built on our record of safety, our approach to sustainability, and our people. And we are committed to providing the following:


We place the highest value on the health and safety of our employees and contractors. Throughout Australia, our sites hold certifications for Environmental Management (ISO14001), Quality Management (ISO9001) and Occupational Health & Safety (AS4801). In addition, our operational processes ensure that safe working practices are foremost in our people’s minds – no compromises.

As we continue to improve our processes to respond to risks and crisis events, we will continue to meet health and safety challenges.


Our focus on our employees’ wellbeing complements and reinforces our safe-work programs. We encourage our people to take a proactive approach to achieving and maintaining optimum health levels and importantly, a work-life balance.

We offer employees tailored wellbeing information, covering nutrition awareness, chronic disease prevention, resilience and spinal health.

Many of our employees and their families enjoy taking part in charity sporting events and fundraisers, taking our contribution beyond the workplace into family and community life.


We’re committed to reducing our environmental impact through efficiency, research and innovation.

In all our business activities, we work to avoid, reduce or control environmental impacts, and review environmental objectives and targets with the aim of continually improving the living environment.


We partner with and support the local communities where we operate. We’re committed to fostering sustainability by supporting environmental, social and cultural initiatives that promote and protect the environment.


We develop innovative solutions for some of the most significant environmental challenges facing today’s world. Major areas of work include: intelligent energy buildings and smart grids, water recycling, treatment of new waste materials, eco-neighbourhoods and bio-resources.
