Energy & Resources
Using the sun, water, wind, earth, and our waste to meet our energy needs is the key to addressing the challenges of finite non-renewable resources and their subsequent environmental impacts. Technological advances and energy markets are rapidly changing in this field. Robert Bird Group is proud to be at the forefront of innovative energy projects ranging from wind farms in some of the world’s remotest regions to tidal energy projects servicing our largest cities.
To meet the demands of growth, our global infrastructure investment needs are forecast to increase by over 30%, to $3.3 Trillion annually through to 2030. The importance of innovative and sustainable engineering has never been more important. At Robert Bird Group we take pride in delivering engineering excellence on infrastructure projects that are shaping our future.
The modern world has demands on resources like never before in history – as a result, the need for ore to produce basic materials such as iron, aluminium, zinc, lead, copper and the like is greater than ever before. Our world relies on our ability to source these materials without compromising our living environment.
Robert Bird Group provides a suite of engineering services to the mining industry, whether it be minerals, precious metals, or fossil fuels. Our experience covers a range of mine infrastructure needs, including –
Water isn’t just essential to life, it is essential to our way of life. Water infrastructure is vital to the economy and stability of families, communities, cities, and even whole countries. The security and protection of drinking water, wastewater treatment services, and distribution and collection systems are essential. New infrastructure, water sensitive urban design, and water smart communities are required to protect our water resources for future generations.
Robert Bird Group is able to provide engineering services to the water industry and have experience in:
Safe and reliable rail services are vital for connecting our communities and industries. As our cities grow out and up, integrated multi-modal transport solutions are required to meet these growing demands
The capacity and performance of our road networks directly impact our economic growth, our welfare, and our quality of life. New road projects seek to improve safety, reduce congestion or reduce travel times.
Using the sun, water, wind, earth, or our waste, to meet our energy needs is an obvious choice to addressing finite non-renewable resources and their subsequent environmental impacts
The world’s ports and shipping lines are the backbone of our logistics networks and global trade, and yet our ports face challenges from ageing infrastructure, climate change, competition, and urban development.
