This October Alder Group celebrates the remarkable milestone of 20 years of operation. It is with great respect and appreciation that we will acknowledge this landmark occasion by celebrating our team and reminiscing on the company’s expansive journey to date.
What started as a construction business working from Managing Director Greg Alder’s Gold Coast home in 2003 has continued to expand into a multifaceted development, civil, infrastructure, and commercial construction company with a workforce of more than 90staff.
The company has clocked up over 300 projects across its development and construction arms, spanning the health, education, commercial and community sectors in Queensland and NSW over the past two decades.
The expansion of the company’s geographical footprint was marked by the acquisition of its first North Queensland project, Airlie Summit in 2021. This was on the back of Alder’s expansion south into NSW with the creation of a satellite office in Ballina followed by securing a raft of tenders in the state equating to more than $20 million.
Alder has further established itself as a leader in both Queensland and New South Wales with projects to the value of $15.5 million rolled out in the health space in the past two years, and more than 35 education projects equating to over $150 million.
Mr Alder says the company’s resilience lies in its ability to diversify its offering to adapt to changing market conditions.
“Our ability to offer both civil and infrastructure, and commercial construction as well as development capabilities has extended our scope dramatically and enabled our team to deliver a wide variety of projects, with a growing emphasis on commercial construction and community infrastructure projects,” he said.
“This has been seen with the successful completion of the innovative 5,600sqm, A-grade commercial space, M1 Connect Business Hub at Helensvale and the Aspire Industrial subdivision at Yatala, both of which were developed and constructed by the Alder Group.
“Our position in the community infrastructure marketplace has been further cemented through the award of significant projects such as the Marine Stadium Jetty and Pontoon project as part of the Spit Master Plan Implementation and the award of other community infrastructure projects equating to over $82 million. This portfolio includes the Lismore Employment Lands Project for Lismore City Council and Minjerribah Panorama Coastal Walk for Redland City Council.”
Since its inception, Alder has maintained a ‘family business feel’ to ensure a healthy workplace culture ingrained with high morale and strong work ethic. Staff enjoy programs and incentives to help drive productivity while providing a diverse workplace with a high emphasis on productivity and safety.
With a keen eye for developing new talent, the Alder management team has now directed its attention to nurturing the next generation of construction workers with its Building Blocks Program.
