Many ant species are ecosystem engineers. For example, they turn and aerate the soil, allowing water and oxygen to reach plant roots.
They also take seeds down into their tunnels which for many plants provides good conditions to germinate and grow. By structuring their environments to suit their needs they have profound effects on the occurrence, abundance, and spatial pattern of other species.
Engineering and design are hardwired into Aurecon’s DNA; so is the deep need to leave a legacy.
We believe humanity depends on engineering; and we recognise we have a broader stewardship role to play. A deep responsibility to hold. By embracing change and disruption we create liveable design solutions that deliver enduring intergenerational equity of resources and infrastructure for us and the environment.
