Mining infrastructure

Mining infrastructure is an extremely broad and multi-disciplined competency, which draws on a large cross-section of Aurecon’s service capabilities from roads, to buildings, from power supply, to project management. 

We have strong expertise in the delivery of projects and a proven capability in the engineering and professional services sectors over a range of key and complementary industries. Providing integrated solutions to our clients needs means we can utilise our local understanding and our global expertise for our client’s benefit.

A broad global exposure and geographical footprint, combined with our unique understanding of our clients needs allows us to provide expert capabilities that can be tailored to suit the individual complexities of every project we undertake.

Our Mining Infrastructure Competency translates our service strengths across a large range of client offerings critical to this rapidly expanding industry.
