Marlee Crawford

What discipline and cohort (i.e. 2018 or 2019) are you in?

2018 Sustainability and Environment Graduate

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

My first rotation was in the country NSW town of Griffith with the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area Renewal Alliance (MIARA).

My current rotation with the West Gate Tunnel Project in Melbourne is vastly different from working with the small team in MIARA. Here, I have had the opportunity to be a part of a large joint venture (two or more companies working together on the same project), where I have had to learn different management systems and processes.

What does your typical workday look like?

Morning: Make it to pre-start at 7:00am, where the site supervisor summarises the tasks and any high-level risks for the day.

Mid-morning: Get back to the office and check my emails before heading back out for weekly inspections to make sure that the sites are looking neat and we are meeting the environmental commitments stated within our management plan.

Early afternoon: After having discussions with supervisors about managing stockpiles, it’s time to head out and monitor vibration generated from the concrete piling which has just started close to a power substation.

Afternoon: I document the results from the inspections and vibration monitoring before finishing the day drafting the site environmental plans for the packages of work commencing in the upcoming weeks.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

I really appreciate the diversity and dynamic nature of the role. Some days you spend reviewing plans and attending meetings and the next day, you can’t leave site because every team is uncovering heritage artefacts! You must learn to not plan too much for the day ahead, the work is fast-paced and constantly changing.

What are the limitations of your role?

The main limitation I have faced in my time as a graduate is understanding that my role is more about compliance. However, you soon realise that you are playing your part in protecting the environment by ensuring that all works are compliant with legislation and that the impact on the greater environment is minimised.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

I wish I understood a little more about the construction industry and how it operates.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

As my first rotation was over seven hours from home and within a rural area, I prepared by buying a car and packing my entire life into it!

Hear from a current graduate: Annabella Reaper - Graduate Engineer  

"I’ve been able to visit a number of universities and speak about the John Holland graduate program to prospective students and educate young women through sharing my experiences in the construction industry.

One of the main questions I get from students is ‘What is it like being a female in the construction industry?’  

I tell them about my experience at University, and how I was the only girl in our group of 15, this gave me the perception all construction companies like John Holland would be male dominated.

Instead I was interviewed by two females, my first project had a female Delivery Manager, female Construction Manager, female Safety Manager, female Risk Manager, female Communication and Stakeholder Engagement Manager, female Site engineer and female Undergraduate engineer”

Infrastructure - ChiChi, Kip, Zhimo

John Holland


John Holland

ChiChi Luan

What discipline and cohort (i.e. 2018 or 2019) are you in?

Infrastructure 2019

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

1. Tunnelling – Plant and M&E Services

In my first rotation, half of the time was about learning and understanding how the tender process works and how/why a TBM is chosen in some of the key tunnel projects.

I was also very fortunate to be involved in a couple of international tenders during my rotation, including liaising with TBM suppliers and managing plant budget. In this rotation I was able to utilise practical engineering knowledge to work through construction sequences and solve problems independently while part of a larger team.

2. Melbourne Metro (CYP) - Plant Team

In my current rotation, the main task is tracking fuel consumption for CBD precinct plants. I’m the point of contact between sites and fuel supplier. I’m also responsible for tracking and forecasting fuel expenses.

Based on the data, we can also analyse how fuel is consumed by different plants, which helps in budgeting future projects.

What does your typical workday look like?

On a typical day, the first thing when I arrive at the office would be reading emails received overnight. Then list down key tasks that are required to complete on the day.

Half way through the day, I will go to sites if time allows, to meet up with site engineers and collect dockets.

By the end of the day I try to spend 5-10 mins to reflect what’s done/not done today and take notes of any important events.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

Today I went down the shaft and witnessed our first breakthrough of the project - State Library Station. This was very exciting as everyone on this project has worked extremely hard. This is a great milestone to celebrate.

Working on this project makes me understand more about the amount of work required to build a tunnel and appreciate more when I drive through one.

What are the limitations of your role?

Less exposure to a site environment compared to other site-based engineers.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

More knowledge about construction and tunnelling, I recommend reading civil journals/magazines.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

By researching John Holland key projects and gaining general knowledge about the construction industry.


John Holland

Kip McCauley-Wassell

What discipline and cohort (i.e. 2018 or 2019) are you in?

Infrastructure – 2018

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

QLD/NT/NZ Corporate HSEQS, Brisbane QLD
Ichthys LNG Civil Works, Darwin NT
Long Term Recycled Water Release Plan (Stage 1), Gold Coast QLD

What does your typical workday look like?

At the current stage of the project, construction is underway in my scope on a 23m shaft. This will give access to the Tunnel Boring Machine to be removed, once it reaches South Stradbroke Island in a few months. (It needs to travel 1.3 km under the Broadwater first).

I start my day catching the transport boat to my office on the island.

My superintendent and I check the work fronts are organised for the works that day, then I will typically spend the morning planning, forecasting and sequencing upcoming works.

On any given day there is a variety of different activities occurring, and my role as an engineer is to comply with John Holland’s expectations, and those of the customer – the City of Gold Coast. In collaboration with our delivery partners, we chair meetings regularly to check on progress, develop safe work methodologies and ensure the works adhere with quality and budgetary constraints.

The afternoon is typically spent reviewing works planned for the following day, recording milestones and updating the program. I also like to take some time to reflect on any achievements and engage with mentors or continue to develop my skills. Currently, I’m working on improving my sketching and formatting in AutoCad.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

Gaining insight to the lifecycle of a project, from ideation to commissioning, and the intricate relationships and skills required, has been the most interesting thing about my job. Through touch points in my rotation at each stage of a project timeline, it has been fascinating to understand the complete operating process of a tier 1 contractor, and by extension the future of infrastructure in Australia. Witnessing these landmark energy and transportation projects become realised is just the cherry on top.

What are the limitations of your role?

Every day presents a new set of challenges, so I never have the luxury of becoming comfortable or generic in my responsibilities. Learning to be agile in my thinking and adapt and problem solve on the go requires a good understanding of the processes, and great relationship skills to draw on the right expertise to achieve the optimal outcome.

Plus being so remote, I can’t rely on takeaway for lunch, and need to plan my meals in advance.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

Asking questions is not annoying, it shows interest and is sometimes the only way to learn.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

Bought some comfortable socks for my steel caps and got a haircut. I was nervous I would be out of my depth when I arrived on site, but the John Holland team welcomed me and explained everything to me so well, no prior preparation was needed.

What discipline and cohort (i.e. 2018 or 2019) are you in?

2019.

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

I start my first rotation at Boneo Wastewater Treatment Plant in February 2019 and will concluding the rotation in December.

What does your typical workday look like?

To do evaluation and recommendation for suppliers/subcontractors.

Writing Activity Management Statement and Inspection Testing Plan by communicating with supervisor and project engineer.

5:00pm Finish work

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The most interesting thing is to be able to experience the different stages of construction, i.e. Service Relocation, Bulk Earth Work, Dewatering, Formwork. Every stage involves a completely different scope of work, which make things interesting. makes you never feel bored. There are always new challenges waiting for you to work out.

What are the limitations of your role?

Not being in attendance at client and designer meetings to get the latest updates can make it difficult at times.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

I would have liked to have gained great knowledge about general construction sequence, i.e. Earth work, Formwork, Concrete Structure, etc.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

Talking with people who are working at John Holland, to understand John Holland systems, and the relationship between Commercial, Financial, Estimating and Construction.

Civil Infrastructure/Buildings - 2018

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

During the Graduate Program I have worked on the New Intercity Fleet Maintenance Facility (NIFMF). I completed all three of my rotations while working on the project.

My rotations have covered design management, earthworks, roads, utilities and buildings.

What does your typical workday look like?

TYPICAL MONDAY:

6:50AM – Arrive to Site
7:00AM – Prestart
7:30AM – Site Walk/ Solve any outstanding site issues
9:00AM – Go over emails/submit any RFI’s
10:00AM – Weekly Team Meeting
11:00AM – Technical Work (preparing for upcoming works)
1:30PM – Site Meeting with Engineers, Supervisors and Superintendents
2:00PM – Four week look ahead with responsible Engineers and Senior Management
3:00PM – Site walk
4:30PM – Emails/Quality/RFIs (anything outstanding for the day)
5:30PM – Leave site

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The most interesting thing about my job is being able to solve any issues on the spot and if I can’t find the answer immediately, working with subject matter experts to resolve the issue.

What are the limitations of your role?

The greatest limitation of my role is managing my work life balance. Coming up towards the end of the Graduate Program my responsibilities and workload has significantly increased. Being ambitious, it is easy to put 100% focus into work and let things such as social life and exercise slip.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

Before I started working, the industry hours were quite intimidating. I wish that I knew how flexible workplaces can be. Now I am wishing there were more hours in the day to get my work done!

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

I spoke to as many people as I could within the industry (Construction and Design) so that I could gain an understanding of the calibre of work I would be undertaking and get as many tips as I could for my initial steps into construction.

Hana Nguyen

What discipline and cohort (i.e. 2018 or 2019) are you in?

Rail 2018

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

My first rotation at Rail Services Victoria, working on smaller rail maintenance jobs. While there I worked on the tram realignment stage 1 project for Cross Yarra Partnership (Metro Tunnel), Benalla siding project for the West Gate Tunnel Project and various smaller projects for V/Line, MTM and ARTC. Working on smaller projects allowed me to experience the whole lifecycle of the projects, from tendering, planning, commercial, delivery and close-out.

My second rotation was planning at North West Program Alliance. This rotation built on and enhanced my understanding of planning and how it is applied to bigger projects, as well as learning how to use the planning software, Primavera. I got to work on various programs for different phases of the project lifecycle, such as the initial development phase, tendering phase, delivery phase and close-out phase.

My current rotation is in pre-contracts, where I got to work on two different tenders at different phases of the tender cycle. In this rotation I worked with the estimators to help price up the works.

What does your typical workday look like?

My day would start with coffee, regardless of the rotation or project I’m on. Next, I would sit down and write my “to do list” for the day, half of which would have already been populated the previous day before I left work. I usually highlight my “must do tasks” which are critical tasks needed to be completed that day, and any other tasks I should do if I have time.

Depending on the rotation, my mornings would either be a site walk or be in meetings. If I’m on site, I try to stay on site for most of the day, only going into the site office to complete my “must do tasks”. For office-based rotations, I try finish my list of things to do in order of priority.

Before leaving work, I always write down what I need to do for the next day, as well as carry over any non-critical tasks I have left over.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

I’ve found everything interesting so far, because I’ve had a wide range of experiences. On the smaller projects, I was given more responsibility and was able to be more hands on with a lot of different areas, such as safety, quality, environmental, legal and commercial. On the bigger projects, I was able to gain a deeper understanding on certain functions of a project, such as planning, and how it ties into the overall project.

What are the limitations of your role?

I don’t think there are any limitations in being a graduate engineer. You are there to learn, and through the different experiences you’ll have along the way, you’ll gain the knowledge.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

Bring a notebook around with you and write down any words you don’t understand, then ask your supervisor or manager for the meaning. The construction industry is filled with slang and noone will slow down to explain them to you.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

I had to move interstate for the Graduate Program, so I was too busy looking for accommodation to prepare anything. I don’t think you need to prepare anything, just come to work with an open mind and willingness to learn and the rest you’ll learn along the way.

What discipline and cohort (i.e. 2018 or 2019) are you in?

2018

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

For the past two years I have worked on Sydney Metro Northwest delivering the Operations, Trains and Systems Package (worth around $3 billion).

What does your typical workday look like?

My day will usually start with some planning, I always like to have goals for my day in terms of what I want to achieve.

My work is office-based so depending on where the project is at, I am usually involved in developing a report to make an assurance argument, or another key report I worked on was to demonstrate that the design was capable of meeting its high-level targets for trains running on time.

I also assist in other areas of the systems engineering team such as requirements, usually writing scripts to automate some of the processes we need to execute as a project. Programming is an extremely useful way to remove the need for manual processes and enable our project team to utilise their specific expertise more often throughout the day.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The exposure to the largest public private partnership is something I have come more recently to appreciate.

What keeps the work I do interesting is that the project lifecycle always moves forward, meaning you are always working towards a huge milestone – completing the project, which then brings benefit to the communities we work in.

What are the limitations of your role?

Being a graduate can be seen as a limitation, however I use it as an opportunity to ask lots of questions and learn a lot from people with a lot of experience.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

To back yourself more. It is easy to stand off a bit when working with people with over 30 years’ experience. More and more though, I have come to back myself and just see it as a level playing field, which has reaped rewards for me.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

I went to South America for a month!

Before this program I had worked with John Holland for a year as an undergraduate, so for me I was comfortable entering the program.

2019

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

Green Square Library and Plaza- Building Division- Undergrad
North West Metro- Showgrounds Station- Infrastructure Division-Undergrad
Pre- Contracts and Conversion- Building Division- Grad

What does your typical workday look like?

During Tenders: I start every morning with two espressos. If we are in the middle of a tender, there can be lots of meetings with the team and contractors to discuss strategy and explore innovative construction materials or ways of building which will give us a competitive advantage. When you are close to a submission date you tend to lose track of what day it is as every day becomes a workday and long days become a standard.

Post/Pre-tenders: Not being the one to sit around, I was lucky enough to be given freedom to write research reports for the Building Division. I spent days at concrete plants, steel facilities and precast plants looking at what they do, and the processes and systems involved.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

I have been at John Holland for three years now and I have worked on Green Square Library and Plaza and North West Metro before transitioning into Pre-Contracts. The most interesting party about working here is you are only bound by your own limitations.

I have been on site visits to West Connex where I sat in a road header as it tunnelled, the Sydney Metro Pre-cast facility, Macquarie Park, numerous factories and concrete plants all through self-organised initiatives because I wanted to learn more about the industry. I have also climbed a Tower Crane- they are much higher and scarier than you think.

Working for such a large company opens several doors for you, and if you are passionate and have a drive to learn you will find invitations to other construction sites; and contractor facilities will readily flow your way.

What are the limitations of your role?

In the office you need previous experience to formulate and imagine the workings of the site and construction methodology to generate VEs and Smarts when talking to contractors and office staff. This then drives your learning.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

If you keep forgetting someone’s name onsite (e.g. a concrete pumpie or dogman), write their name on the back of your helmet with a pen. So next time you forget all you do is take your helmet off and it’ll be there. Once you remember it then just rub it off.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

Having just come off Metro I took some leave before transitioning into the office.

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

Jan–Dec 2018: M4 East Westconnex Homebush Bay Drive Surface Works
Dec 2018 – Present: Batemans Bay Bridge Project

What does your typical workday look like?

Attend prestart at 6.45am at the site compound

Ensure all subcontractors and John Holland employees understand their tasks for the day and ensure they are all following the relevant processes (e.g. sign onto the Task Risk Assessments (TRA’s), checking their Start cards, ensuring the right permits are in place and not outdated, etc).

Sitting down with supervisors and leading hands to review and write out onsite TRAs for different works happening. Ensuring that all hazards and controls have been captured in the TRA’s to minimise all the risks associated to the works.

Go out on site and ensure that the workers have adequate documentation, equipment, supplies and approvals to continue works.

Daily inspections as per John Holland HSE inspection matrix, in nominated work areas such a:TRA Audits, Inspection checklists, GMR inspections, Hazard Observations etc)

Heading back in the office, there are many tasks which need to be done and it varies depending on which day of the month it is.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The most interesting thing about my job at the moment is definitely the different personalities you meet in the construction industry.

What are the limitations of your role?

As a Graduate engineer, there are still many things in which I do not know in terms of the construction industry. It can be quite hard during sub contractor meetings or even out on site to try to express what is required for a certain scope of works when they may have years of experience and would believe that their way is correct.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

Wish I knew more about the construction process within the infrastructure industry. A lot of subjects in university concentrated very heavily on the theory and design aspects of engineering however put very little emphasis on the practical side of construction.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

Preparing for the Graduate program for me started during my university time. I made sure that I had previous work experience in the engineering/construction industry while studying. Being a Junior designer at a sub contractor company part time, and then being an undergraduate for a Main Contractor full time definitely helps to have a bit more knowledge and is a great starting point.

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

Sydney Harbour Bridge Lift Access Project Northwest Rail Link Sydney Metro-Bella Vista StationSydney Water-Delivery Management.

What does your typical workday look like?

As a Project Manager (PM) in Delivery Management, I’m responsible for managing multiple growth projects for Sydney Water to upgrade Sydney’s infrastructure to handle the rise in new developments. I am currently, managing three pipeline projects which are in different stages. A PM’s job is to deliver the project from securing funds, developing a business case which identifies the need for the project, developing design options, design workshops/reviews and the actual construction where you manage forecasts/ payments and subcontractors from a high level.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The most interesting thing has been observing other PM’s use their organisation acumen, experience, construction knowledge and leadership skills to manage different stakeholders in order to deliver projects. This role holds a lot of responsibility and while you are not expected to know all the technical details of the project, you need to develop a thorough understanding of what you are delivering and the challenges involved, as every day will present a new problem for you to solve (or at least use your leadership skills to get the right person for the job).

What are the limitations of your role?

The only limitations are that the main projects are related to water/pipelines which may not necessarily be your area of interest. However, I’ve been able to choose projects which involve civil construction as well, and hence have been able to work on projects that I’m passionate about.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

There are many things that I would have benefited from knowing before I stated. The main one would be to simply remember to focus on learning new skills, and to put yourself in an environment where you’re constantly growing.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

I travelled as much as possible, so when I got back, I was ready to dive into work.

Vinh Nguyen

What discipline and cohort (i.e. 2018 or 2019) are you in?

Civil Engineering, 2018

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

Castle Hill Station – NRT Infrastructure Joint Venture:
One of the 16 construction sites on the project and Sydney Metros largest project connecting the North Western suburbs of Sydney that will provide reliable public transport service. The Sydney Metro Northwest is the first fully automated metro rail system in Australia.

Perth Transport Authority Urban Rail Maintenance and Infrastructure:
One of John Holland’s long standing projects in Australia.

What does your typical workday look like?

The typical day on site will always begin with the morning pre-start and some light stretches to get you awake at 6:00am. Daily site inspections and safety inspections are crucial in keeping the worksite safe and ensuring quality is consistent.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

There aren’t many opportunities to build a train station especially an underground train station in Australia. The rotation in projects allow you to meet new people all the time and being challenged to learn more every day.

What are the limitations of your role?

Not being in attendance at client and designer meetings to get the latest updates can make it difficult at times.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

As much as you learn in University, you will be surprised by the amount of terminology used to describe objects, tools, techniques and vehicles. Don’t be afraid to ask for an explanation of the word, because the last thing you want to do is interpret something incorrectly.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

I prepared for the Graduate Program by gathering all my clothes and belongings as I was moving across state to start a new job.

Communications and Stakeholder Engagement Graduate, 2019.

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

I am five months through a 12 month rotation with the Metro Tunnel Project in Melbourne.

My current rotation is across two sites, Anzac Station on St Kilda Road and the Eastern Portal in South Yarra.

What does your typical workday look like?

Check my emails and see what is happening on-site via the time-lapse camera –– Weekly meeting with the client

Head out for either an onsite or perimeter of site walk to see how construction is coming along –– Meeting with stakeholders (residents, business, government agencies – depends on the day) –– Sit down with engineers to talk about their upcoming works and potential disruptions

Write collateral for community consumption regarding upcoming works

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

One of the great things about working in communications and stakeholder engagement is that it is a centralised role. You have an understanding of all works happening at both your sites and the project as a whole.

What are the limitations of your role?

The program is tight, meaning things change all the time. We have community and stakeholder requirements that we must meet that sometimes limits the work that can be done on-site.

And they won’t let me drive the TBM.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

As I mentioned earlier, I had no experience in construction. Before I started, I wish I knew how to read drawings and designs. That being said, everyone that is a part of CYP has helped me to learn and grow my understanding of construction.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

The welcome week was a great way to prepare for the Graduate Program. I also tried to read up on John Holland and major projects in Melbourne to get an idea of the environment I was about to walk into.

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

WestConnex 3B (Rozelle Interchange Project) as a HR Graduate.

What does your typical workday look like?

On a typical day, I can be found:

  • Running new starter inductions
  • Responding to general HR enquiries
  • Ensuring our sub-contractors are compliant with the Building Code
  • Updating our project’s organisation chart
  • Organising project events and activities
  • Assisting in recruitment and interviewing candidates
  • Learning how industrial relations plays out during project start-up phase
  • Being mentored by my colleagues

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The most interesting part of my job has been learning how an enterprise agreement is negotiated and the challenges this can bring. It’s also been interesting seeing the transition of a project from winning a tender to delivery mode.

What are the limitations of your role?

The only limitation is my own inexperience. Sometimes I want to jump on board and start helping out with some of the bigger picture parts of HR and IR, but realistically first I need to learn the basics. My colleagues have been great mentors to me, and I know that soon enough I’ll be ready to get into the thick of it.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

I wish I knew more about the construction industry, as it’s been a big learning curve trying to piece how it all works together. There is so much terminology to learn for someone who’s never worked in construction before!

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

I prepared for the Graduate Program by keeping an open mind about my rotations and what I was going to learn on the job. I felt it was important to enter the Program with this mindset to make sure I got the most out of the journey I was about to embark on.

I also researched John Holland’s existing projects and tried to get an overview of the business.

Provide an overview of all your rotations to date:

I am on my first rotation on the TSE (Tunnel Station and Excavation) project – Marrickville Dive site.

What does your typical workday look like?

Once I arrive on site, I make sure that the VMP (vehicle management plan) is current. I check my emails prior to pre-start in case there may be something that needs to be communicated to all workers.

Part of my tasks include logging on to the pre-start scanner and making sure that people are scanning on and attending daily pre-starts. On Monday’s, toolbox talks are carried out prior/ after the daily pre-start. After pre-starts, I carry out site inductions followed by site inspections.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

Everything has been interesting for me as it is my first time in the construction industry and my first time working in the safety space. The enthusiasm shown by workers to explain what they do allows me to not only build rapport with them but to learn their job too!

What are the limitations of your role?

Sometimes, some people don’t take you seriously because you are a graduate. The main limitation, however, is whatever you limit yourself to. If you are willing to learn and not take things personally, then you can learn more and thrive.

What is something you wish you knew before you started?

I wish I knew how to manage time better before I started. At the start of my rotation I almost burnt out. However, I did get a lot of support on site and at head office to manage my time better.

How did you prepare for starting on the Graduate Program?

I made sure I had enough rest before starting, I travelled and in my spare time read construction material, so I could understand things better.

John Holland


We want to transform communities for the better and are committed to incorporating what locals want into our projects. Our projects involve the community at every step, and we are committed to partnering with them to create the best results for our towns and cities.

Our community partnering approach includes:

  • Managing community impacts – Reducing the impact of our work on local communities.
  • Providing community benefits – Creating outcomes that support local communities and deliver lasting benefits.

The community benefits we create are in the form of a contribution of funding, labour, skills or knowledge to build lasting, positive legacies. We often offer these initiatives on top of what our customers require, to create a spirit of community development.

Health, Safety, Sustainability & Environment

John Holland


Health and Safety

Everybody who works with us has the right to go home safely. There is nothing more important. There is no project or deadline that will ever be more important than getting our people home safe. Our experience, and that of the wider industry, tells us that injury exposure comes from a consistent set of high risk activities that have the potential to cause harm. That is why we developed our Global Mandatory Requirements (GMRs). The GMRs are evidence- based requirements that set the minimum standard required for our workplaces when planning, managing and undertaking these high-risk activities.

Sustainability

Our communities of the future are what we make them, and John Holland is proud to lead by example to ensure we help cities and towns become more productive, sustainable, liveable and inclusive. Our goals guide how the business develops and executes its activities over the next ten years and beyond - to create a more sustainable future for everyone.

Environment

Preserving our environment for future generations is a focus of all our projects. To enhance our communities, we have to lead in environmental management.

Every project is unique, and every community deserves a future that is better than its past. We proactively identify and manage environmental risks, and we take every opportunity to use our projects to ensure the safety of local ecosystems. This is expected of our people and our subcontractors, and we work to build sustainably and efficiently.
