Liberty Industrial has significant experience delivering Defence sector projects working both directly for the Department of Defence and delivering projects for third parties on current and former Department of Defence sites throughout Australia.
Our project delivery teams are adept in managing the complex engineering, safety and environmental risks potentially encountered on Defence sites such as unexploded ordinance and hazardous substances. They are competent in handling a multitude of complex stakeholder issues associated with such projects like archaeological heritage and site and information security.
