Who We Are
We are an Australian & New Zealand based construction company that is internationally recognized for our ability to design and develop unique projects, particularly large transportation infrastructure.
Ferrovial Construction established its permanent presence in Australia in April 2011, delivering seven contracts to date and participating in some of the largest highway, tunnel and railway tenders in Australia. Managing over 1,000 people at the peak of its activities across several projects, the key to Ferrovial Construction’s success in this market is its strong focus on safety, quality and innovation.
We established a permanent presence in the Australian market with the incorporation of Ferrovial Construction (Australia) Pty Ltd (Ferrovial Construction Australia) and opened an office in Sydney. We obtained National Prequalification System for Roads and Bridges for R5, B4 and F150+.
Ferrovial Construction Australia was selected as one of the Industry Partner Development Teams to provide innovative schematic design and build options and solutions for specific components of the WestConnex project in New South Wales. Ferrovial Construction Australia successfully obtained AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001 safety accreditation.
We established Ferrovial Construction (New Zealand) Ltd, marking the beginning of our commitment to the New Zealand market. Ferrovial Construction Australia was accredited under the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme and certified to AS/NZS ISO 14001 and AS/NZS ISO 9001. Our first construction project commenced when Ferrovial Construction Australia was awarded an RMS project to upgrade 4.1kms of the Nelson Bay Road, located close to Newcastle and about 180kms North of Sydney.
Ferrovial was awarded two Pacific Highway contracts, the Sancrox Interchange and the Warrell Creek to Nambucca Heads road upgrade project. Ferrovial Construction Australia won a 2014 Construction Quality award for “Environmental Performance and Innovation”.
We successfully completed the Nelson Bay Road Upgrade project two months ahead of schedule. A major achievement made possible by our project team who worked closely with RMS for what was considered our first major project in Australia.
During the third quarter of 2015 the Sancrox Interchange project was completed. Our significant tender activities and efforts throughout 2015 were rewarded with the announcement of two more major contracts: Northern Beaches Hospital Connectivity and Network Enhancement project in Sydney and the AU$1.6b Toowoomba Second Range Crossing PPP project connecting important economic growth areas in Southern Queensland.
Ferrovial Construction Australia was awarded the RMS D&C Bridge over Clarence River at Harwood project in New South Wales.
Ferrovial Construction Australia achieved Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO) Accreditation. Ferrovial’s sister company, Cintra, was selected as the Preferred Bidder for the OSAR Programme in Melbourne, Victoria.
The Warrell Creek to Nambucca Heads section of the Pacific Highway was successfully delivered in July. Ferrovial Construction Australia obtained BIM Certification. WC2NH was a Finalist at the Australian Construction Achievement Awards.
The Toowoomba Second Range Crossing and the Harwood Bridge project were successfully completed and opened to traffic.
