BMD has grown from a small Queensland family business to become the largest Australian owned, national engineering, design, construction and land development contractor.
From humble beginnings, BMD and its people deliver infrastructure which connects communities across Australia and leaves an impact for the long-term. Since establishment in 1979, a philosophy to see things differently and their unique family-orientated culture has remained, with the business truly being about its people.
What makes BMD different is its value system, unique culture and commitment to all staff. Renowned for a relationship-based approach to business, BMD puts its people, partners and the community first. BMD was founded on the principle of achieving success through people. Having grown from a handful of employees working in a house in Brisbane’s bayside suburb of Manly, BMD now employs 1700 people in every Australian state and territory.
After 40-plus years of operation, BMD continues to invest in the development of long-term relationships with subcontractors and owner operators. This investment serves to maximise the opportunity for local input with flow on effects in the legacies we leave in communities long after the project is delivered. The mantra ‘our business is our people’ extends to the longstanding relationships developed with key suppliers and partners which have endured for decades. Established on a set of values that are the essence of its culture today, the BMD way continues to be the foundation of the company’s success.
