Leading in the marketplace

Welcome to our November eNewsletter.

As we continue to focus on providing leading business solutions to our clients it has been pleasing to see our shared successes recognised over the past month with several industry awards. It is also an honour to see Aurecon again judged the number one company in South Africa in the engineering groups sector.

I have been keeping an eye on the South Australian Health and Medical Institute (SAHMRI) as it progresses towards completion. It really is a world class building. Click on the video on the left to find out about the ambitious design and sustainability outcomes.

In this eNewsletter we share updates on our major projects, recent appointments, award wins, and community initiatives.

We also feature our latest thinking on data centres and solar power.

Please contact anyone at Aurecon if you have any questions regarding the contents of this eNewsletter.

Best regards
