Our contribution to reconciliation will ensure that we build respectful and meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Safer By Choice

It is our commitment to always ask 'is it safe, or is there a safer choice?'

At the core of Safer by Choice is a recognition that each person involved in the design and delivery of a project is a decision maker, from the design consultant and estimator through to the landscape worker putting the final touches in place.

Establishing a successful safety culture takes a commitment to the long term. Protecting it is the role of all ADCO employees, guided by the leadership team.

Women of ADCO

We are dedicated to a one-team culture.

Women of ADCO (WoA) provides national dialogue, leadership and support through a collaborative approach which facilitates social and parental support, mentoring programmes, professional development and career growth within the construction industry.

WoA aims to provide leadership and support for social and parental support, professional development and career growth within the construction industry, to provide value to the company through national dialogue and strong allegiances within the construction industries, and to remain dedicated to the ideal that both male and female members are treated fairly and with equal opportunities.

A National WoA conference is held bi-annually, led by our Chairman Judy Brinsmead. Practical outcomes of the conference include encouraging membership and involvement in industry associations, the introduction of a mentoring program, promoting the construction industry in schools and universities and community engagement. Quarterly meetings are also held in each State to help drive initiatives and ideas.

Our Chairman is an active advocate for encouraging women into the industry.

Wellbeing

We listen to our people and support their wellbeing and work-life balance.

We encourage and promote opportunities to work smarter to enhance performance and wellbeing. We offer a wide-range of initiatives to support our staff, such as flexible working arrangements to accommodate family needs, company-subsidised health and fitness programmes and staff recreation days.
