Freyssinet Australia: The Pioneer of Specialist Civil Engineering in Kalgoorlie


Freyssinet Australia: The Pioneer of Specialist Civil Engineering in Kalgoorlie

Freyssinet Australia is a multifaceted contractor providing innovative solutions from design to implementation for specialist civil engineering in Kalgoorlie.

As part of the Soletanche Freyssinet Group, we have a sterling reputation in the field of specialised civil engineering services. Organised in geographical zones spanning five continents, we operate in more than 100 bases with strong local roots.

From Past to Present: A Legacy of Excellence

With a history spanning several decades, Freyssinet has been a prominent player in specialist civil engineering.

  • Established in the 1953 through licence holders, Freyssinet became its current form in 1983 with the acquisition of a 50% stake in Austress PCS by Freyssinet International, a global network based in France.
  • By 2006, Freyssinet assumed full ownership of the organisation.
  • Underwent a rebranding in 2009 after the merger with Soletanche Bachy and the global launch of a new business image and logo, solidifying its commitment to excellence and innovation.
  • Demonstrated deep involvement in the Australian market even before the rebranding, consistently delivering high-quality solutions.
  • A notable contribution to the Australian landscape: involvement in constructing the Gladesville Bridge in Sydney during the late 1950s.
  • Company owner and creator Eugene Freyssinet played a pivotal role in the project, supplying bridge joints and flat jacks for the largest concrete arch bridge at the time.

Freyssinet maintains a strong national presence with offices strategically located in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, and New Zealand. This extensive network enables the company to deliver exceptional engineering solutions and support various projects throughout the region.
