Indigenous Employment Initiatives

Over the past 30 years Ri-con has had the privilege of working in some of Australia’s most beautiful regions. We have had the honour of working with Indigenous Elders and Leaders, Traditional Owners, strong Community Councils, local authorities, Shires and amazing families. Although our national office is in Queensland, our offices in Kununurra, Derby and Darwin are proof that we value the knowledge of local communities and the brilliant people who live there.

The company is serious about its efforts to make an enduring, equitable and sustainable contribution to those regional economies in which it operates and has developed an Aboriginal Workforce Development Strategy . This work-site based Strategy is implemented by each Project Manager and enables Aboriginal workers to enter the building and construction workforce equipped with the knowledge, skills and understandings needed to gain and sustain employment and maintain social health and stability.

Our focus is on partnering with communities to deliver the best possible set of economic, environment and social outcomes for them. The long-term aim is to develop a skilled Aboriginal workforce that continues to provide services to local communities long after the Company has completed its work in the specific community.

Training and Development

We value the professionalism that our employees and subcontractors bring to every project and are committed to the continued investment in their vast local construction knowledge and skills in order to continually exceed our client’s expectations.

Commercial Construction

At Ri-con, we are motivated by our passion for the land and the people to help us consistently deliver quality projects in the most challenging of environments.Australia’s remote regions are variable, extreme and un-predictable.

It is these challenges that drive the innovation and commitment of our professional team who continuously strive to exceed expected outcomes.Our company reputation is founded on highly skilled and trained operators, with many years experience in remote area operations, equipped to establish Ri-con as the leader in remote construction.

We also draw on the expertise of local subcontractors, where possible, providing a professional selection of trades with local knowledge appropriate to remote conditions.
