Collaboration

A Spirit of Collaboration Drives Every Project.

Haslin is a collaborative contractor. We believe that the only way to make each project successful is to engender effective collaboration across all project interfaces; with government, with stakeholders, with landowners, with local residents, and with Sub-Contractors. Our clients, however, put it better:

“With Haslin we found a great partner who was able to work creatively and constructively
around what we wanted to achieve here.”

“It was a positive working relationship with Haslin. Collaboration is essential in a Design and Construct, because the asset owner’s needs need to be addressed, and I found, as Project Manager, that that was in place.”
Kevin Chahoud, City of Sydney

“With Haslin on site during the construction phase, it’s just been open lines of communication and people asking the right questions of each other. Being respectful, basically.”

Gender Equality

A Spirit of Intersectional Inclusivity.

As is well documented, the construction industry is male-dominated – with a recent CCF survey placing the number of women in non-clerical roles at lower than 5%. While Haslin stands by our many principled and technically astute male staff, we believe that our industry should reflect the diverse makeup of the world that we build infrastructure for. To that end, Haslin is committed to correcting the imbalance with a combination of Policy and Industry Activism.

Industry Activism

Led by Haslin’s General Manager Gladys Woods (pictured), Haslin have been staunch supporters of the CCF’s Women In Civil Mentoring Program since 2017. Through structured mentor-mentee relationships over a nine month period, the program aims to provide an environment of support for women, encouraging them to join – or ensuring they remain – in the civil construction industry.

Policy for Parity

Haslin’s corporate culture is built on a spirit of intersectional inclusivity; we’re committed to reflecting the diversity of our country in the makeup of our company. This is undergirded in Haslin’s HR Policy, which dictates that all women who apply for an engineering role are offered an interview. This ensures that women’s voices in our industry are heard.

Indigenous Participation

Looking to the Future while Honouring the Past.

Haslin recognises that, when we pour a concrete slab, we’re doing it on land that has a human history spanning some 60 000 years. On every project, in accordance with our Indigenous Participation Policy (SEQ-POL-014), Haslin works with both our client and traditional custodians to set a project participation target that honours the historical geographical context of the works.

This percentage is generally between 5% and 15%, and sees us regularly exceeding the requirements of the NSW Government’s Aboriginal Participation In Construction (APIC) framework and the Federal Government’s Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP). While Haslin are proud of our achievements to date, we will continue to push forward, helping to correct a salient imbalance in our industry.

Local Labour

Local Labour. Local Machines. Local Materials.

Haslin is a city company with a country focus, and in over thirty years of operation, we’ve delivered more than $500 Million of infrastructure in regional NSW. When delivering works regionally, we do so in concert with the local community, prioritising engagement with local labour, local suppliers and local Sub-Contractors.

Haslin’s Local Engagement Strategy entails a proactive, holistic investment in the social fabric of the communities in which we work. Not only does this make financial sense for Haslin and our clients, it leaves a skills legacy in the region that extends beyond the delivery of the infrastructure itself.

Haslin has set industry benchmarks for Local Participation on projects, such as:
