Approach

Approach

Globally, Gamuda is known for excellence in safety, engineering innovation and the delivery of major infrastructure projects.

Safety

Gamuda is globally recognised for excellence in safety – nothing is more important than the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, contractors and communities. Safety is one of our core values, and part of who we are and what we do every day. It underpins our ‘Be Safe’ philosophy.

In Australia, Gamuda became the first Malaysian-based company to achieve accreditation from the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner. We have also pre-qualified for work in States across the country, including with Transport of NSW for roadworks level R5, bridgeworks level B4 and financial level F150+ (unlimited).

Gamuda’s exceptional health, safety and environmental management record has been recognised and rewarded multiple times by the British Safety Council, including the following :

  • Sword of Honour in 2019, 2020
  • International Safety Award (with distinction) in 2019 for MRT Putrajaya Line
  • Five Star Occupational Health & Safety (OSH) Audit in 2018 & 2019
  • International Safety Award (with distinction) in 2015 for MRT Kajang Line

In Australia, Gamuda became the first Malaysian-based company to achieve accreditation from the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner and we have pre-qualified to work with Transport for New South Wales roadworks level R5, bridgeworks level B4 and financial level F150+ (unlimited).

Internationally, we have maintained key safety certifications in accordance with ISO 9001 – Quality, ISO 14001 – Environmental and ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety Management System Standards.

In fact, the British Safety Council awarded Gamuda the Sword of Honour in 2019 for excellence in safety.

Engineering innovation

Gamuda has been globally recognised for developing innovative engineering solutions. From the world’s first autonomous tunnel boring machine to the world’s first dual function tunnel for both traffic and stormwater (SMART).

We don’t just deliver solutions – we use innovative engineering to invent them.

Gamuda is a leader in design, using the latest technology and tools in our construction and infrastructure projects – be it in digital industrialised building system (IBS), 4D and 5D building information modelling (BIM) systems or in procurement systems.

Certified by the Building Research Establishment as a BIM Level 2 Prepared Business, Gamuda is on the forefront of this transformative technology.

We have even developed our own augmented reality platform, called BIMAR, in which we can overlay virtual design and construction elements with real-time worksite images.

BIMAR allows us to undertake a site visit with clients before construction even begins, which means we can identify and rectify any issues early and efficiently.

Taking our BIM capabilities even further, Gamuda is revolutionising the construction industry by incorporating digital design tools, automation and robotic construction to prefabricate up to 85% components for residential, industrial and public buildings.

Not only does this reduce construction time by half, Gamuda’s IBS has been independently verified by the Construction Research Institute of Malaysia to increase builder productivity by 300% and equip contractors for the Industry 4.0 revolution.

Gamuda has pioneered the use of variable density tunnel boring machines (VD TBMs) to manage the risks associated with tunnelling amongst even the most challenging geological formations.

The VD TBM is the world’s first automated system comprising custom artificial intelligence control algorithms, improving safety, quality and durability.

Exclusively available to Gamuda, this proprietary technology was awarded the Technical Product/Equipment Innovation of the Year award at the 2019 International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA) Tunnelling Awards in the USA.

Gamuda has been globally recognised for developing innovative engineering solutions. From the world’s first autonomous tunnel boring machine, to the world’s first tunnel with dual functionality for both traffic and stormwater (SMART).

We don’t just deliver solutions – we use innovative engineering to invent them. Gamuda’s variable density tunnel boring machine (VD TBM) was the world’s first automated system comprising custom artificial intelligence control algorithms, enabling autonomous control of tunnel boring machines which can switch between earth pressure balance, slurry mixshield, and high-density slurry modes.

This innovation allowed Gamuda to safely tunnel through Kuala Lumpur’s limestone rock during the delivery of the MRT Kajang Line and MRT Putrajaya Line. During use, the TBM pushed slurry into cavities detected in the limestone rock ahead of the machine’s cutter. By varying the slurry density the tunnel face was stabilised, minimising the risk of sinkholes appearing on the land surface. It prevented tunnel collapse and protected the TBM from damage.
Sustainability

Sustainability (ESG)

Governance, economic, environmental and social sustainability has always been Gamuda’s approach. In everything we do, we "Build Right. For Life".

Our value creation strategy in the sustainability framework is anchored on three key pillars:

Our people are the cornerstone of our business and we are committed to their growth and development through a wide range of programmes and initiatives that include our  Tunnelling Training Academy and our Enabling Academy.

Gamuda’s technological advances in building information modelling (BIM) and industrialised building systems (IBS) not only ensure precision and quality, but they are also an integral component of our commitment to sustainable and efficient use of resources during the planning, design and execution phases. Championing this technology allows us to identify potential issues, reducing costly changes and wastage down the track.

With a commitment to be carbon neutral by 2040, Gamuda’s ecological stewardship programmes include the rehabilitation of wetlands in Malaysia, investment in the planting of native species of trees, development of urban parkland and a commitment to a reduction of waste through the circular economy. 

Gamuda is committed to operating with minimal disruption to the environment, with a guiding principle of giving back to the planet and local communities. Gamuda has built a diverse, vibrant workforce and continues to invest in our people to enable them to excel.

One of our key achievements is the development of the Enabling Academy in Malaysia to help people with autism gain sustainable employment.

Community engagement

At Gamuda, we work with local communities to create social value and deliver positive contributions to society.

Engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, forms an integral part of all projects we undertake, and we greatly value the opportunity to develop equitable and inclusive solutions.

Local Partnerships

Local partnerships

At Gamuda, we believe in creating social value for local communities through partnerships that foster collaboration.

By 2022 there will be the need for 500 specially trained TBM tunnelling crew in projects across Australia. Our mission is to invest in and train specialist TBM crew members in tunnelling academies here in Australia, as we have done in Asia, working with our community education partners to make this happen.

To this end, in late 2020 Gamuda signed MoUs with Registered Training Organisations HSAS and TAFE NSW as prospective delivery partners.

Gamuda has an excellent track record of creating jobs and training during the project delivery.

In 2011, Gamuda set up Asia’s first Tunnelling Training Academy which has since trained thousands of tunnel engineers and skilled superintendents. We have plans to replicate the Tunnel Training Academy in New South Wales to upskill the local construction workforce should the current tenders be successful.

Gamuda recognises the challenges faced by many people on the autism spectrum in securing meaningful employment, despite their myriad skills and areas of expertise.

In light of this, in 2013 Gamuda launched Project Differently Abled, which ultimately resulted in 20 people living with autism being employed by Gamuda.

The project was also a precursor to the Enabling Academy, established in 2017, which prepares people living with autism for gainful and sustainable employment.

Since 2017 more than a dozen people each year have graduated from the Gamuda Enabling Academy, each of whom have gained employment across our 29 partner companies.

At Gamuda we believe in creating social value for local communities through partnerships that foster collaboration.
