Expanding our global footprint
Our performance in Australia reflected the two speed economy: a subdued property sector and the end of stimulus spending in the public sector reduced some activity, while the natural resources boom provided a significant boost for our mining and metals and oil and gas teams.
Our mining and metals team has been busy in Queensland working on coal mining projects, while in Western Australia we have been supporting clients developing gold and diamond deposits. Our oil and gas team has been actively involved in the development of multiple Australian LNG facilities both on the east and west coasts.
The scale of investment required in the infrastructure sector across Australia is unprecedented, however the progress of projects to delivery stage has been constrained by availability of funds from both the public and private sectors. We have been working with transport clients during the feasibility and business case stages for many of the major projects across Australia, including Cross River Rail in Brisbane, Sydney's Second Airport Study and WestLink toll road in Melbourne.
