The FIELD Engineers story
FIELD Engineers was established in 2005 in Mackay, Queensland when directors David Hartigan, Jon Halliday and Matthew Doidge decided to pool their complementary skills to offer the Queensland mining industry a specialised project engineering team.
Now located in Mackay, Brisbane and Gladstone, the business has grown to include consulting engineers and design drafting across the civil, mechanical and structural disciplines. Complementing engineering skills, the business also offers occupational health and safety services.
Clients rely on our project engineering and management teams being located close to mining operations in the Bowen Basin – we know our clients’ operations well, and can be on site fast. Our success lies in continually providing our clients with innovative thinking, integrity and resourceful solutions, working in partnership to meet our clients’ challenges.
Supporting the local community is also an important part of our culture. Every year we donate time and resources to organisations and causes that promote healthy living or help people cope with tough times.
Mad Mountain Bike Club
FIELD has been the major sponsor of the Mackay & District (MAD) Mountain Bike Club since its formation in 2009. We’ve been proud to see it grow into a family oriented club that is home to some champion riders.
Charities & sponsorship
FIELD regularly donates to charities close to the hearts of our employees and clients. We sponsor a number of sporting clubs and support science-in-school initiatives promoting science and technology careers.
The mid-year family BBQ and end-of-year celebration are much anticipated events on the social calendar. In between, you are likely to find the FIELD team participating in fun runs, sporting events and other recreational activities.
FIELD is proud to support engineering students from diverse backgrounds who would otherwise find it difficult to take on tertiary studies. The CQUniCares Scholarship provides financial support and work placements to a CQUniversity degree or associate degree of an engineering student during their first two years of study.
Our directors are hands-on in the business and actively recruit the best people in their fields to join the team.
The right people, in the right place, at the right time, and with the right skills are central to the FIELD vision.
