Neil Harding, Ceo, Adco Construction
In today’s competitive world, most companies strive to remain competitive in the market in some shape or form. Some are successful, some fail. But those who are successful, they have one common factor —focus on building a robust and strong organizational culture. ADCO Construction is one of them. Established in 1972, this 50 years old company has been steered by family values, trust, and honesty. It has been committed to delivering quality services to its clients and people. This led the company to become one of the leading construction tech solution providers in Australia.
Today, ADCO consists of more than 3,000 projects under its belt worth a combined value of more than $8 billion. The company expanded its offices in six regions, serving the whole nation. With enormous experience and its award-winning capabilities, the company has made its way onto Australia’s list of the top 100 private companies in the nation.
Neil Harding, CEO of ADCO Construction says, “ADCO aspires to be the builder of choice for our clients, our consultants, our contractors, and our people.” To achieve this, the company offers hosts of services, including extension, refurbishment and renovation, design specialties, construction management, and development advisory solutions for buildings and warehouses.
ADCO engages itself to provide financial surety to its clients and their financiers. Neil adds, “We maintain a policy of profit reinvestment and working capital management to ensure our balance sheet remains commensurate with the size of our business.”The company exceeds the financial requirements for licensing in each state and territory, for private and government projects. At present, ADCO has strong and liquid asset reserves and a blue-chip client base, which translates into consistent cash flow and profitability. Its audited financial statements are available on request.
Doug Zuzic, Chief Information Officer of ADCO says, “In the past, there was a strong sense of construction being allergic to technology. But, now the time has changed.” The company has started embracing cutting-edge technologies to change the way designers and engineers interact with site managers. It has created an inter-communication system with all aspects of its business to ensure seamless project completion.
