Ports & marine

Ports and waterfront infrastructure are critical to Australia’s economy. As an island nation, 98 per cent of our trade is conducted through ports, including container and bulk material-handling facilities.

Our ports simultaneously serve as a first line of defence against diseases and pests that could wipe out entire industries, so it’s essential they’re designed and built to operate securely, efficiently, and seamlessly with existing land-side infrastructure. 

We understand the risks and opportunities of delivering projects in challenging marine environments. Our construction and maintenance skills and experience have been honed on coal, mineral, and bulk liquids terminals across WA, Queensland and NSW. Whether jetties, piers, berths, breakwaters, seawalls, or sea pilings, our projects provide the strongest foundations to successfully realise any challenge.
