aBCD Enterprise − reshaping infrastructure delivery in Australia
The right solutions – delivered the first time is the goal of all infrastructure asset owners.
In early 2020, aBCD Enterprise was formed to redefine infrastructure delivery by providing value for money, and improved outcomes for asset owners, their clients and the wider community. This means providing a truly integrated multi-disciplinary offering to the water (and other) sectors, covering civil/structural with electrical/mechanical, and instrumentation and controls.
aBCD brings together Brolton Group, an Indigenous-owned mechanical and electrical engineering contractor; Calibre, an infrastructure, technology and engineering company; and Diona, a utilities/civil specialist delivering essential community infrastructure.
According to David O’Connor, Chair of Calibre Diona, the brand name features the first letters of each of the three businesses and represents aBCD’s uncomplicated and integrated approach to doing business.
“aBCD is not simply about bringing three businesses together and saying, ‘We’re good’. We knew we had to offer more, be different, not just rebadge. aBCD combines the multi-disciplinary skills of the three businesses and can deliver projects with a high level of self-performance across all areas. No one else is doing this,” said Mr O’Connor.
aBCD’s hands-on capability allows the team to innovate, de-risk projects, and add real value for money while maintaining the highest level of asset quality.
“While there are other firms who have multi-disciplinary teams, we also bring to the fore our expertise in automation and technology integration. Our knowledge in this space is world-leading,” Mr O’Connor said.
Ben Lynch, Director of Brolton Group, also saw opportunity in the partnership.
“As a privately-owned Australian company, we are committed to supporting the future of Australian industry, employment and economy. Brolton Group is Supply Nation certified, so we’re also doing our part to improve the lives and livelihoods of Australia’s first peoples,” said Mr Lynch.
Both Mr O’Connor and Mr Lynch said aBCD is keen to partner with qualified regional construction engineering businesses, especially in New South Wales.
“For us, having a network of local qualified engineering construction suppliers means we service our clients while supporting businesses and communities in regional and rural areas,” said Mr Lynch.
