Acknowledgement of Country
Buildcorp acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we live, work and learn. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and to Elders, past, present and emerging.
Our Vision for Reconciliation, from our Founders
We are proud to present Buildcorp’s first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan.
Our vision for Reconciliation is that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples will have equal opportunities in participation, employment and supplier diversity.
We have a deep respect for the over 70,000 years of continuous cultures and knowledge of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We recognise that these are the oldest continuing cultures in the world, and we are privileged to work alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people within Buildcorp, our suppliers, clients and subcontractors.
Respect, giving back and fair play is at the core of Buildcorp’s values, and we will bring all our people along the RAP journey to contribute to the understanding, partnerships and initiatives that it drives.
Through the implementation of our Reflect RAP, Buildcorp aims to be a ‘uniting force for good’ to help contribute to a reconciled, just and equitable Australia.

We recognise the process of reconciliation should be approached with sensitivity and respect. On our RAP journey we aim to be a unifying influence by drawing on the opportunities provided through our projects and partnerships to create meaningful outcomes in employment, procurement and cultural understanding and respect.
