Our story

We specialise in engineering, architecture, environmental and construction services.  While we are most well-known for adding beauty and structure to communities through high-performance buildings and smart infrastructure, we provide much more than that. We create an unshakable foundation for progress because our multidisciplinary teams also include scientists, economists, builders, analysts and artists. 

As a leading professional services company, we operate in the global markets of architecture, industrial, mining, oil & gas, power, development, transportation, waste and water. 

Established in 1917 and privately owned by our people, we employ nearly 10,000 people in over 225 offices across five continents – Asia, Australia, Europe, North and South America. High quality, technological competence and extensive experience are the foundations of our success. Driven by a client-service led culture, we connect the knowledge, skill and experience of our people with innovative practices, technical capabilities and robust systems to create lasting benefits.

Committed to sustainable development, we improve the physical, natural and social environments of the many communities in which we operate. We are guided by our workplace health, safety, quality and environmental management systems.

We do the right things for the right reasons, whether we are working on our clients’ projects or making decisions about our own internal practices. We believe in an approach that is relevant, responsible and accountable and solutions that leave the world a better place by providing meaning and value.
