16 March 2012 - Aurecon has won a prestigious BRW Client Choice Award, rated best firm by the primary industry sector.
David Baigent, Aurecon’s Unit Manager for Resources & Manufacturing Services, collected the award on Wednesday night in Sydney on behalf of Aurecon. The short listed finalists for this award also included AECOM, Golder Associates and PWC.
“We have established a deep understanding of our clients’ needs through our long-standing operation in these markets”, added David.
The award follows recent, national industry recognition of Aurecon’s technical excellence on major resources projects Abbot Point Coal Terminal in Queensland and Newcastle Coal Export Terminal in New South Wales.
Tony Barry, Aurecon’s Chief Business Development Officer, said, “Our core strategy is building strong client relationships and delivering successful projects, and this award provides further evidence that our strategy is working.”
The BRW/Beaton Client Choice awards are based on the largest survey of professional services clients in the world, conducted by Beaton in November 2011, and even to be a finalist is an indication of the high level of client service at the firm. Tony Barry commented, “We are committed to continuously improve our service delivery to key clients across all of the industries that we operate in.”
Feedback on Aurecon that Beaton received from one client was read out during the award ceremony. Our service was described as "Very responsive, were able to understand our business very quickly, offered a range of solutions, cost conscious, very friendly and easy to deal with and included us in invites to professional presentations they thought may be of assistance.”
This year Beaton Research & Consulting has had more than 27 500 responses from clients across the sectors who were asked to rate the performance of firms they had worked with on a broad range of attributes and the top performers come out as finalists and winners.
Aurecon has been a consistent finalist and winner of the Client Choice awards in recent years.
