Engineering

The engineering industry in Australia is poised for significant growth in the next five to 10 years.
With more large-scale infrastructure projects getting the go ahead, engineering construction alone is expected to grow to around $140 billion by 2018. This is more than double what it was in the last decade. The continued growth in the oil and gas sector, transport infrastructure, electricity generation and supply, sewerage and water supply projects will mean boom time for the industry.

We work closely with engineering companies to help them make strategic decisions in an environment with converging markets. We understand the complexities faced by the industry’s players, from the demand for lower-priced contracts to shorter completion times to environmentally sound designs and increased competition.
