Our project teams are multi-disciplinary, using our combined strength and expertise to provide the best possible outcome for our clients. We communicate across offices, states and countries with our colleagues, partners and clients.

We don’t just grow in terms of our job titles. We are continually learning new approaches to design, collaborating with engineers, draftspeople and technicians across multiple disciplines and drawing from the knowledge and experience of our leadership team.

If we require advanced technology, we find it.

If we need to think about a problem differently to achieve the right outcome, we do it.

If we have an idea which will save our clients time, money and risk, we speak up.

We think differently

Led by an experienced, responsive and engaged team of senior engineers, our hands-on management team is dedicated to guiding our staff through all projects and sharing their knowledge.

Focused on solutions and problem solving, there is no detail too small, no issue too inconsequential - the lines of communication with our approachable leaders is always open and accessible.

The team at ADG regularly gets together to hear about our new projects, new technology and simply to catch up.

2016 Staff Awards

Since 2011, ADG have recognised and celebrated the contributions of our staff to our business culture and success with our annual staff awards. The winners are voted by the entire company - the leadership team, the managers and the team members, so each recipient is incredibly deserving and is well respected by our team.

Scholarship Programs

The ADG Scholarship Program

One of the ways we foster guidance, support and communication is through the University of Queensland ADG Engineers Scholarship and the Griffith University ADG Engineers Scholarship. We are committed to investing in future generations of engineers and these scholarships provide pathways for students to achieve great success in their studies, gain practical, hands on knowledge in the industry and excel from the beginning of their engineering careers.


The UQ ADG Scholarship

Each year we award an annual prize of $5,000 for students in the second, third and fourth years of their Bachelor of Engineering. We began this in 2014 to encourage and support Civil Engineering students who have been educationally disadvantaged as a result of their financial, geographic or cultural circumstances.


The Griffith ADG Scholarship

Each year we award two $1,000 prizes for female students enrolling in a Bachelor of Engineering at the Gold Coast Campus. This scholarship encourages female participation in the engineering professional field and aims to assist them with their financial commitments while studying.
