About Us

Laing O'Rourke is a $6 billion international operation with 60 years of involvement in Australian construction and infrastructure, including nearly two decades under the Laing O'Rourke banner.

The business delivers projects as diverse as the environments in which they are built, from high security military bases and major rail transport infrastructure projects, through to landmark buildings at the transport interface. While we operate in every state and territory in Australia, Victoria is our fastest growing market.

In Melbourne, we are delighted to have been selected as the preferred proponent for North East Link's South Package with our partners Symal Group, WSP and Arcadis. We're proud to have been appointed to such a significant project for the State and look forward to working collaboratively with the Victorian Government and the North East Link Project Program to deliver a compelling, value for money solution, changing the way people move around Melbourne.

In Victoria, we are also currently delivering several projects for the Victorian Government's Level Crossing Removal Program (LXRP), as part of the South Eastern Program Alliance. The Alliance consists of Laing O'Rourke, Jacobs, Metro Trains Melbourne and LXRP as the Project Owner. We are also delivering the Melbourne Airport Rail early works, the Suburban Rail Loop initial and early works, Princes Highway East, Kilmany and Bridge Inn Road projects.

Laing O'Rourke provides relocation support to people who are moving to a new location, either long-term or permanently. We work hard to create an environment that brings out the best in our people. We believe in building careers through providing a safe, connected and innovative culture that supports ongoing growth and development.
