BUILDING COMMUNITIES

We prioritise sustainability and social inclusion so that we not only construct quality assets of long-term value but help build better lives.

 

Our projects involve the community as a partner at every step. Our community partnering approach includes:

  • Managing community impacts – reducing the impact of our work on local communities.

  • Providing community benefits – creating outcomes that support local communities and deliver lasting benefits.

The community benefits we create are in the form of:

CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT

We enable capacity development through targeted skills development of workers and internship opportunities for undergraduates and recent graduates.

ECONOMIC CONTRIBUTION

We inject income into the community through engagement of local labour, subcontractors, and suppliers. We have in place Local Industry Capacity Development Programs.

INDIGENOUS PARTICIPATION

We are committed to inclusive development and actively participate in stimulating Indigenous entrepreneurship, utilising existing construction business capacity both in Australia and in our overseas projects. We offer Indigenous Australians with opportunities to participate in the economy.

ELIMINATING GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE AND CHILD ABUSE

 We are committed to carefully identifying, assessing and managing Gender-based Violence and Child Abuse/Exploitation risks within our worksites and surrounding local communities.

PROMOTING HEALTHY LIVES

We support Indigenous Australians and Pacific Island athletes to compete in athletics, providing schools with sports equipment (rugby, soccer, netballs) to the communities we work with.
