The relationship blossomed from there to the point that Alder Constructions’ Managing Director, Greg Alder, is the current Chairperson of the AITC and has been instrumental in establishing new college campuses across South East Queensland. AITC was established in 2008 by industry leaders in response to a need for an alternative style of senior education. The College has achieved outstanding results in its early years, with the successful placement of graduates into a trade career at a ratio of approximately 95%. The College is something that is highly regarded and valued by Alder as it builds the foundations of the construction industry and assists the wider community with trainees who are vital to our future infrastructure development and skills base in our industry.
We are proud enthusiasts of our diversity drive highlighting the need for creating, encouraging and developing rewarding careers for women in the construction industry. Alder Constructions are currently involved with not-for-profit organisations such as Awesome Women in Construction (AWIC), National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), and continually create opportunities for our women in construction to thrive.
Alder Constructions is also a strong advocate for a safe workplace. Our affiliation with Mates In Construction (MIC) is a testament to this commitment. We actively encourage our staff to incorporate the “Work Safe, Home Safe” mentality which we support with numerous workshops and training sessions in collaboration with MIC.
