Be different, be Downer

Be different, be Downer

No one achieves anything ground-breaking by doing the same. Different is more than just where you come from or what you look like. Different is in the way you think, the actions you take and the unique perspective you as an individual can bring to the table.  

Our differences are the backbone of our strength. They’re what allow us to solve challenges, not running away from them, forge long lasting relationships, and build a better Aotearoa. 

For over 150 years, we develop, build and maintain some of this country’s most iconic infrastructure that contributes to the way we all live and work. But what makes the difference, and shapes our success as a company is the melting pot of amazing people from all walks of life. Different strengths, skills and perspectives all working together. 

Build a better New Zealand

Facilities, Utilities and Transport is what we do. We plan, build, maintain and operate, right through the life of our country’s infrastructure. Operating for 150 years, we’re always on - across 122 locations in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

It’s engaging and rewarding work, not least because of the diverse mix of people we work with every day.
