Building resilience

Welcome to our July eNewsletter.

In today’s turbulent global economy being able to not only survive but grow depends on finding quicker ways to get things done better.

Across Aurecon we are using modelling and software that can significantly reduce the time and cost of both effective asset management and delivering new infrastructure and processes.

For example, on many sites, terrestrial laser scanning has saved time and reduced costs across a project’s life cycle. Please click on the image to the left to watch a 3D fly through of the Mackay Molasses loading facility in north Queensland, Australia.

Our bi-annual 360° magazine looking at resilience came out this month. If you missed it, you can link to it via a story in this eNewsletter to see lots of interactive content and read about some innovative approaches to project delivery.

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

Best regards
