Essential to every aspect of life is the security and resilience of water resources. From economic prosperity through to social cohesion and public health, Aurecon understands the true power of providing water services to meet the complex needs of tomorrow's world.

Your work begins with making a difference and realising the true value of water for clients and communities. Water security, water use efficiency, climate resilience, sustainable sanitation, and reduced risk from water pollution and floods are all areas that are key to our planning, design and construction processes for water projects.

Our water capabilities are also critical in supporting future energy projects including hydropower and improved energy efficiency for treatment and re-use of water, the design of critical transport links, agriculture, and in developing water sensitive cities.

Who are we?

Aurecon is an engineering, design and advisory company, but not as you know it. We've re-imagined engineering.

Our clients' ideas and aspirations drive all that we do. We work alongside them like no other firm to co-create clever, innovative solutions to some of the world's most complex challenges.

In 2020, we were named Australasia's Most Innovative Company by the Australian Financial Review (AFR), and also named Most Innovative Professional Services Company. In 2019, we were the first New Zealand engineering company to achieve The Rainbow Tick certification for diversity and inclusion. We maintained our accreditation in 2020.

Hardwired in our DNA are engineering, design and the deep need to leave a legacy. We believe humanity depends on engineering, and we recognise we have a broader stewardship role to play. A deep responsibility to hold. As we continually strive for a life in balance, Aurecon clients will be ready for the future and engineered for life.

What makes us unconventional?

The people who design a better future for humanity are the brave new thinkers like you.

We need you to draw upon unconventional ideas and piece together solutions to complex challenges.

From using digital technology to plan and restore safe transport access from Manawatū to Hawkes Bay after major landslips, to advising on innovative infrastructure solutions to support the growth and regeneration of Eastern Porirua. To designing a breakthrough solar-powered water treatment plant that provides drinking water to Indigenous and remote communities across Australia.

Join us and together we'll make an impact that shifts the world.
