Over the last fifteen years, Calibre has been an engineering partner of choice for major resources companies – BHP, Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals – and has a growing reputation in critical infrastructure and utilities – Horizon Energy, Transgrid and Sydney Water.

Via its Consulting and Technologies divisions Calibre is leading the way in urban renewal, design and security of infrastructure such as roads, water and residential and commercial property, and is a leader in the design and implementation of smart cities and smart industry technology.

Calibre brings to Defence the skills, experience, strategic appreciation and dependability that is an essential, non-negotiable requirement in any Defence engagement.

Calibre’s Defence team is spearheaded by former senior Defence specialists with contemporary experience at the highest levels within the Department and the ADF.  Calibre’s Defence division’s role is to offer Defence a single point of contact to negotiate, understand, and appreciate the unique requirements of any contract with Defence.

Defence has access to a multi-disciplined engineering and asset services team comprising around 2,500 highly skilled and experienced people located across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.  From its inception in creating the infrastructure that drove Australia’s mining boom, Calibre has diversified to include transport, utilities, heavy industry, urban design and planning, and high-tech autonomous and semi-autonomous remote operations.

Our Defence experience is as diverse as our business. Projects include:
