In recent years, we have delivered projects in the $50K - $4M range for clients such as DIT, Department of Defence, SA Water and Broadspectrum along with a number of tier 1 clients. We are active members of the Civil Contractors Federation, Master Builders Association, the Australian Subcontractors Association and the GMUSG. Birubi's management team are comprised of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous people with a diverse skillset, a wealth of industry knowledge and business operations experience.
We’re the real deal.
Our commitment to creating economic independence for Indigenous communities and individuals is achieved through proactively recruiting, training and employing Aboriginal team members wherever we deliver projects along with supporting local Aboriginal owned busineses to engage with our procurement processes.
Our commitment to Aboriginal employment
We genuinely and successfully achieve high local Aboriginal participation on the projects that we deliver. We direct employ our staff and upskill
at every opportunity. Every project we deliver provides local Aboriginal employment – in many cases we achieve up to 85%. Birubi promotes workplace participation and career development through mentoring, role modelling, troubleshooting barriers to full engagement, tailored training support and our commitment to identify and support a career pathway for each of our team members. We achieve our great community
outcomes through community networks engaging with Aboriginal workers, upskilling and training our team of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal workers to achieve an enthusiastic, multi skilled workforce, committed to safety and excellence and with a professional approach to their role on the project.
