A national business
Leveraging off our existing Australia-wide construction footprint and national broadband contract, Fulton Hogan has organically established a national business unit dedicated to delivering telecommunications and services projects across Australia.
Our telecommunications and services business now has over 300 direct employees and owns a significant amount of specialist plant, including: directional drills, fibre splicing and testing equipment, cable hauling equipment, vac trucks, service locating equipment, service in the field vans and real time in the field reporting tools.
The Fulton Hogan difference
Our point of difference is simple. Unlike most other tier one Contractors, we predominantly self-perform the work we undertake. Through this approach we directly control the quality, safety and productivity outcomes. Where it does makes sense to use subcontractors, we carefully choose who we partner with to find culturally aligned organisations, and once in partnership we heavily invest in subcontractors for an enduring relationship.
Investing for the long-term
Telecommunications and services projects can equal huge investments for the community. Fulton Hogan is committed to ensuring that communities benefit from this investment through employment opportunities, up-skilling and development of the local workforce.
Our self-performance model of delivering works ensures higher standards of service quality and a reduction of overhead costs, which are passed onto clients through lower cost delivery. Additional capacity is provided by our labour hire partners and subcontractors, with whom we have worked closely to communicate our training and competency requirements. This provides us with a pool of resources from which we can manage peak workloads.
As a privately owned organisation, we are focused on understanding our customers’ long-term needs and aligning our long-term goals, not just our short-term financial outcomes, which ensures a mutually beneficial relationship.
