Building better communities beyond providing complex infrastructure


Building better communities beyond providing complex infrastructure.

Abergeldie is in the privileged position of being able to tangibly improve and connect communities by delivering projects that have a direct impact such as water and wastewater facilities, rail track reconditioning and station upgrades, bridge and walkways infrastructure. Our mission to build better communities goes beyond providing complex infrastructure, it is deeply embedded in our culture and values as an engineering business.

We care about giving back to the communities where we live and work

Since being established in 1994, Abergeldie has given back 0.1% of annual revenue (not profit) to local charity organisations. Giving back to the communities where we live and work is part of who we are as an engineering business.

We are locals

Abergeldie is a locally and privately owned company and caring for the communities where we live and work is part of who we are. In the true Abergeldie Way, our staff continues to volunteer their valuable time and experience to local communities. Local employment and procurement strategies are developed for each project. In recent years, we have partnered with local organisations to help raise funds for regional medical assistance, mental health and educate the younger generation on the built environment.
