In The Community
As part of our long-term commitment to corporate social responsibility, we support local and national community organisations.
Through the enthusiasm, goodwill and generosity of our people, we have helped to raise tens of thousands of dollars for many worthwhile organisations.
Case study: a fair go for everyone
In the wake of the Global Financial Crisis, the Queensland Government invested $101 million in the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative to give an estimated 21,000 long-term unemployed and underemployed people job related assistance and skills training.
Baulderstone became part of this initiative by offering the chance to some of South East Queensland's unemployed youth and indigenous people to join the Baulderstone workforce on the South East Queensland Correctional Precinct project in Gatton.
Under the guidance of Baulderstone's experienced team, apprentices and trainees are constructing "Project H", a building comprising an indoor sports and assembly hall, officer station and amenities.
Case study: Melbourne Citymission Youth Precinct
Baulderstone is supporting Melbourne Citymission with the development of its youth precinct, the first of its kind in Australia. At the youth precinct, young people can gain the skills and confidence to break out of the cycle of homelessness and poverty, and lead independent and successful lives.
Baulderstone has assisted Melbourne Citymission with minimising their expenditure on design, costing and project management by providing our own expertise pro bono.
We also brought on board likeminded associates. They include Bates Smart, Aurecon, Newton Kerr and McKenzie Group, all of whom committed their resources pro bono.
Together we are providing approximately $400,000 worth of value to Citymission at no cost to the project, meaning these funds can be injected into enhancing the youth precinct and the services that Melbourne Citymission will provide to the community.
