CAPABILITIES

We can deliver a complete range of design and construct building services across various sectors throughout Australia.  We have a proven history of delivering projects of all sizes, from small-scale fitouts to large-scale developments.

Our vertically-integrated structure means we can offer our clients full-service construction capabilities – from concept to completion – enabling a greater control over programming, costs and quality.  We employ a collaborative approach on all projects to ensure stakeholders are engaged as early as possible.  This ensures all priorities are effectively communicated and understood and it enables us to focus on finding value-for-money solutions for all our clients.

Our construction capabilities include:

Our design and engineering capabilities mean we provide our clients with flexible and efficient service that results in high-quality outcomes. 

Being involved early in the design phase means we are able to finalise more details up front and coordinate works more efficiently.  This enables us to incorporate all components of the project in the initial design and planning stage so as to avoid changes and variations later in the project. 

With our vertically-integrated structure and complete range of project services we are also able to offer tight controls on cost, stock and programming to provide quality work and value-for-money solutions across all projects.

Working within all national and local legislation, regulations and codes we will manage all building authority approvals and permits when required.  This includes working with local governments, councils and building authorities to obtain and manage development approvals, construction certificates, building permits and more.  We will also manage all mandatory inspections and reports as required.

We take a collaborative and hands-on approach to construction project management.  We combine this with our meticulous approach to health, safety, quality and the environment to ensure all our projects are completed to the highest quality, on time and on budget.

Our experienced teams closely monitor the programme and report regularly on the project’s progress.  Our project managers and other team members also engage in regular and robust consultation with clients and key stakeholders through scheduled Project Control Group meetings to ensure we are all working together toward the one goal

Due to the size of our operation we negotiate best buy rates with our suppliers and are also able to offer clients the option of global procurement.

We have the financial resources and storage area to purchase and hold up to 2000 tonnes of steel.  This not only ensures we have stock on hand, it also provides protection against price fluctuations.

Through our Global Procurement Team we can procure products from selected and proven overseas suppliers, resulting in more competitive steel prices and providing us with greater flexibility for supply and delivery. We continuously monitor quality, using a thorough process of internal and independent assessments.

We have many trusted and engaged employees across our various facilities and offices across Australia.  These range from Adelaide and the Barossa Valley, up to Gilgandra, Goombungee and Darwin, over to Perth and the Pilbara region, and many places in between. 

This means we are able to deploy work teams quickly and efficiently in order to save time and costs for our client.
