Building the Resilience of the Great Barrier Reef

9 February 2022

Coastal Infrastructure National and Local Government Water Management

The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is truly one of the world’s most remarkable natural treasures. But we also know the Reef is now facing significant challenges linked to climate change and everyone needs to do their part to protect and build the resilience of the Reef for the benefit of future generations.

We realise that undertaking work in and adjacent to the Reef is a great privilege and has been huge part of our history as a company. We invite you to take a look at some of our projects and capabilities relevant to the GBR in this short video.

We are very proud to be able to work on these and other exciting projects that are contributing to the long term conservation and management of the Reef. It motivates our people to work harder to achieve outcomes for our clients as well as stretch our capability to solve difficult and complex problems. Most importantly, we hope that these and other projects will help to build the resilience of our Reef for the future.
