When we look back over 35 years we’re proud to say we’ve been pioneers, innovators and leaders. There have been major changes to technology and techniques in the industry and we’ve played our part in many of these initiatives.
We’re not the first company to say we have a can-do culture. Our version is saying something and doing it, ‘no buts or if only’, staying power and not running for cover.
Our culture has other fundamentals – unity, warmth, accountability, trust and integrity. We believe that when we practice what we preach with each other, we’ll deliver the best outcomes for our clients. That is the Abergeldie Harker Way.
And to the future. Abergeldie Harker, with our Trans-Tasman capability, is ambitious and we’ve set ourselves some big goals. We want to be the market leader and become the underground constructor of choice. But we know not to lose sight of where we’ve come from and what we stand for. Check out our Principles below.
Our Integrated Management System (IMS) has been developed to systematically and consistently deliver projects both domestically and in offshore markets. We assure our clients that:
- Our works are properly planned and their objectives are met in a collaborative approach with no surprises.
- Our works are conducted in a safe manner without compromise and we leave the environment around us just as we found it.
- Risks are appropriately managed with a transparent and measurable approach that meets international standards for tunnelling and underground works.
At Abergeldie Harker every day we seek to do better and improve on what has gone before, our systematic approach allows us to do this and gives us the proof that we are succeeding in meeting this goal.
Abergeldie Harker has employees with a wide range of skills and expertise, along with significant domestic and international experience. Much of our success depends on the skills of our senior, project manager and tunnel manager teams. Abergeldie Harker also has access to the experience and people of Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure in Australia
