Downer is proudly partnering with leading Indigenous business Bama Services to deliver major infrastructure on the Peninsula Development Road (PDR) in Cape York.
The Downer-Bama partnership will improve the accessibility, safety and reliability of transport infrastructure for the local community and create jobs for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to develop skills, capability and experience in the civil construction industry.
“The delivery of these major packages of work in close partnership with Downer has enabled Bama to take huge leaps forward,” General Manager of Bama Services, Ranjan Rajagopal, said. “The commitment Downer has made is unprecedented, and sets a high watermark for what the private sector can do to help ‘close the gap’.
“The experience, professionalism and know-how Downer has nurtured and developed in Bama has enabled us to realise our potential and achieve our aspirations. Our employees have the opportunity to improve their skills through Downer’s in-house training, secondments, coaching and mentoring from experienced leaders.”
