Our vision and purpose

Our vision, "creative people together transforming the world", reflects our culture and our aspirations and has been powering what we do for a century. Together with our clients we are transforming communities and changing lives.

Our purpose translates our vision into an authentic, actionable and daily 'why' for our business and for ourselves. We all go to work to make the everyday, and every day, better in some way – for our clients, our communities and our colleagues.

Our work impacts everyday lives in our communities – whether a dry home,  hot coffee, traffic-jam-free commute, effective public transport, smart work spaces or a cold beer at the end of the day, we make the everyday better.

Our purpose - make everyday better.
Our purpose - make everyday better.

Our values

We have four key values supporting our purpose – partnership, tenacity, enjoyment and care – and these sit at the heart of everything we do. They are reflected in the way we work every day and in our approach to partnering with our clients.


We value enduring relationships with our clients, communities and colleagues across the globe. Ownership, trust and integrity are fundamental to our teamwork.


We stick by our clients, seek to understand all the issues and deliver successful outcomes. Our attitude, technical skills and systems empower innovation.


We embrace our differences, celebrate our achievements and personal growth and have fun along the way. We thrive on challenges and take pride in what we deliver.


We have the courage to make a difference and to not let each other down. Respect for each other, our clients, the environment and our communities empowers us to deliver a safer and more sustainable future.
