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.

Energy & Resources


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 other minerals is greater than ever before.  Our world relies on our ability to source these materials without compromising our  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:

  • Conveyor support
  • Wash bins
  • Loaders
  • Hoppers
  • Plant and vehicle maintenance facilities
  • Haul roads
  • Rail lines and spurs
  • Stockpile protection
  • Condition inspections
  • Maintenance programme development and deployment


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:

  • Catchment analysis and planning
  • Stormwater and drainage design
  • Water quality managment
  • Flood mitigation strategies
  • Water and wastewater networks
  • Water and wastewater treatment plants
  • Dams, reservoirs, and tanks
