5 4 McConnell Dowell | Built Environs Reconciliation Action Plan | Innovate This original artwork design was created by Marcus Lee, a proud Aboriginal descendant of the Karajarri people in Western Australia. This artwork depicts a bird’s eye view of the Australian landscape, in recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander continuous connection to land, waters and culture. The central circular ring formation represents the start of McConnell Dowell’s commitment to their reconciliation journey our ‘stake in the ground’. The three surrounding circular rings symbolise People, Community and Connection. These three rings also represent the three pillars that guide our reconciliation journey: Relationships, Respect and Opportunities. The nine surrounding circular rings form a framework that portray McConnell Dowell’s specialist capabilities. The six outer circular formations depict Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities that are connected by journey pathways representing inclusiveness and diversity within McConnell Dowell. These journey pathways also express the commitment of McConnell Dowell to developing strong, trusting and respectful relationships. Artwork Story

Commencing an Innovate RAP is a crucial and rewarding period in an organisation’s reconciliation journey. It is a time to build strong foundations and relationships, ensuring sustainable, thoughtful, and impactful RAP outcomes into the future. Since 2006, RAPs have provided a framework for organisations to leverage their structures and diverse spheres of influence to support the national reconciliation movement. This Innovate RAP is both an opportunity and an invitation for McConnell Dowell to expand its understanding of its core strengths and deepen its relationship with its community, staff, and stakeholders. By investigating and understanding the integral role it plays across its sphere of influence, McConnell Dowell will create dynamic reconciliation outcomes, supported by and aligned with its business objectives. An Innovate RAP is the time to strengthen and develop the connections that form the lifeblood of all RAP commitments. The RAP program’s framework of relationships, respect, and opportunities emphasises not only the importance of fostering consultation and collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, but also empowering and enabling staff to contribute to this process, as well. With close to 3 million people now either working or studying in an organisation with a RAP, the program’s potential for impact is greater than ever. McConnell Dowell is part of a strong network of more than 2,200 corporate, government, and notfor-profit organisations that have taken goodwill and intention, and transformed it into action. Implementing an Innovate RAP signals McConnell Dowell readiness to develop and strengthen relationships, engage staff and stakeholders in reconciliation, and pilot innovative strategies to ensure effective outcomes. Getting these steps right will ensure the sustainability of future RAPs and reconciliation initiatives, and provide meaningful impact toward Australia’s reconciliation journey. Congratulations McConnell Dowell on your Innovate RAP and I look forward to following your ongoing reconciliation journey.

9 8 McConnell Dowell | Built Environs Reconciliation Action Plan | Innovate Message from McConnell Dowell’s Managing Director What does ‘Creating Better Together’, mean for our business in the context of reconciliation? For me, it is about working with our customers, staff and supply partners to create positive and lasting change for the communities in which we work. We see this as our opportunity to play our part in society’s meaningful and deliberate steps toward reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), launched in November 2020, gave our business an opportunity to do just that, to reflect and educate and better understand what reconciliation can look like. We still have a long way to go, that is why it is so pleasing, to present our second RAP. This RAP phase is called ‘Innovate’ and will build on the strong foundations we set of ourselves during our first ‘Reflect’ RAP. As an engineering led construction company, we know the importance of working with a robust plan. But achieving reconciliation together needs more than just a good plan. That is why all our people will come with us on this important journey and a joint effort will be critical in taking this next step. That is, Creating Better Together. Jim Frith Managing Director, Australia We have a 50-year history of working collaboratively with and within First Peoples’ communities all over Australia and McConnell Dowell has a record of creating positive change for local communities throughout Australia and further abroad. We also recognise there is far more to be done. Message from Built Environs’ Managing Director We believe in relationships not transactions, developing trusted partnerships with our customers, consultants, subcontractors and suppliers that are built on honesty and integrity - one of our core values. The RAP artwork embraces people, unity and connection. If we are going to take some real positive steps towards reconciliation together, we need to focus on those three themes. The success of this RAP relies on everyone in this business getting behind it, being open, and embracing this journey we are on together. That is why we are so proud to be putting our energy behind this journey with McConnell Dowell Australia. Moving beyond Reflect and into Innovate will result in us learning, changing and embracing the pillars of reconciliation in our business. This RAP will help us embrace our past and move forward with greater purpose into the future. Built Environs has a proud 35-year history of designing and constructing significant buildings across Australia and more recently, in New Zealand. Michael Clemenger Managing Director, Built Environs

Together, we strive to achieve a shared future that is inclusive and equitable for all Australians.

We are proud to be on this reconciliation journey, and we will continue to learn, grow, and take action to achieve our Vision. During the delivery of the Echuca Moama Bridge Project, our team took every opportunity to support local First Peoples’ businesses and increase employment opportunities for First Nations people. Through the Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation relationship, AKO Earth was endorsed by the Elders to work on some of the project’s most culturally sacred sites. Supported by the project team, AKO Earth’s business grew from sole trader status to that of an experienced subcontracting company, employing eight people at peak times during the project.

15 14 McConnell Dowell | Built Environs Reconciliation Action Plan | Innovate Our RAP Journey • Our office visitors engaged with our consistent use of our culture protocols and the artwork displayed prominently in our offices • The artwork process and story were highly engaging and used widely and proudly across the business • Our use of Welcome to Countries sparked people’s interest in local history and created a better understanding of First Nations history • Many projects challenged themselves further to educate their workforce on history and culture • Policy reviews created awareness and provided the RAP Working Group an opportunity to engage with senior leadership within the business • There was increased awareness and confidence in use of language • The RAP created a platform for engagement between projects and corporate offices. Resulted in deeper collaboration across the business • The RAP played a role in connecting our projects more wholesomely with local communities and businesses in the regions we worked in. Our Reflect RAP, released in November 2020, was our first formal step towards reconciliation for our Australian business. Our leadership, staff and supply chain partners have embraced the RAP process. It has strongly contributed to lifting people’s cultural awareness and their understanding of reconciliation. On the completion of our Reflect RAP, a senior leadership alignment session was held in April 2022, to review the progress the organisation had made and to prepare ourselves for Innovate. Reflect allowed McConnell Dowell Australia to lift awareness of reconciliation in the business. The Leadership Team and Working Group felt the following aspects of the plan stood-out: Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road Project, VIC Echuca-Moama Bridge Project, VIC/NSW
17 16 McConnell Dowell | Built Environs Reconciliation Action Plan | Innovate McConnell Dowell, in undertaking our Innovate RAP, will seek to continue this journey, increasing the cultural awareness of our staff, supply chain partners and improving the knowledge and observance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, protocols and dates of significance. This will ensure we create a solid foundation for our future RAPs to be meaningful, mutually beneficial and sustainable. The opportunity for us to continue telling local stories through our projects is something we are keen to keep building on during Innovate. We believe for us and the many communities we work in, this is something that allows us to help local communities respectfully facilitate a connection to First Nations and local stories long after our projects are completed. • Deeper engagement with our Alliances and Joint Ventures projects • Stronger and more consistent focus on communications for RAP Innovate • Improved focus on tracking and reporting on actions • Work closely with Reconciliation Australia to ensure we are getting the most out of Innovate • Continue to create a supportive culture to embrace this next phase of reconciliation • Build on and strengthen our relationships with First Nations people right around Australia. Learnings and areas for improvement for Innovate: Being involved in the RAP process as an Aboriginal, it has given me the belief that we as a company are heading in the right direction.

21 20 McConnell Dowell | Built Environs Reconciliation Action Plan | Innovate Case Studies The Deer Park Station design has a deep historical connection to the local area and was developed in collaboration with the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation, the Traditional Owners of the Country. The ground around Deer Park Station was an important source of connection, trade and livelihood for the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung People, who continue to maintain a respectful, harmonious relationship with the land, that they call Country. Deer Park Station and Precinct Design The station design is based on the ‘layers of Country’, a set of stories told by the Traditional Owners that recognise Bunjil the Great Creator Spirit, who usually takes the form of a wedge-tailed eagle, as the creator of all layers of Country. The stories tell tales of the landscape between the land and the sky as separate layers, each layer has meaning and purpose for the Traditional Owners. • Biik-ut (Below Country) – basalt and quartz were sourced from this layer and used by Ancestors to make weapons, tools and small wells. • Biik-dui and Baanj Biik (On Country and Water Country) – these layers include the land, water, animals and plants that provided shelter, food, goods to trade, burial places and more. • Murnmut Biik and Wurru wurru Biik (Wind Country and Sky Country) – the layers that contain the wind and the stars, home to Ancestors and a guide to the changing seasons. • Tharangalk Biik (Bunjil’s Forest Country above the clouds) – Bunjil’s home, from where he watches over all he has created. We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung People and thank the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation for sharing stories of Country as part of their collaboration on the Deer Park Station and precinct design.

23 22 McConnell Dowell | Built Environs Reconciliation Action Plan | Innovate McConnell Dowell’s scope involved the design and construction of approximately 481 km of 12-inch diameter high pressure gas transmission pipeline and associated pipeline facilities including two mainline valves and a midline scraper station. The pipeline transports gas from existing offshore and onshore gas reserves in the Northern Territory and will supply this gas to Incitec Pivot’s Phosphate Hill plant located south of Mt Isa and other users. The Northern Gas Pipeline Project was constructed in 2017 in very remote arid lands roughly stretching between Tennant Creek and east to the Queensland border lands. The project achieved 36% First Nations participation and also the substantial value of contracts provided to the local supply chain over the life of the project. Case Studies McConnell Dowell was engaged by Jemena under an exclusive ECI agreement to design and construct the Northern Gas Pipeline, opening up the Northern Territories gas reserves to industries in Mt Isa, Queensland. Northern Gas Pipeline Project The landscaping contracts were for the Cherry Street and Werribee Street level crossing removals in Melbourne’s west. Hayden Heta, Wamarra’s Managing Director and a proud Wiradjuri man, explained the importance of securing the contracts with WPA... “Being awarded Cherry St and Werribee St LXRP Landscaping packages with Western Program Alliance is a real turning point for Wamarra. “These packages of work allowed Wamarra to recruit additional Aboriginal employees, providing genuine training and development opportunities. “The projects were also an opportunity to showcase the diverse skillset of our Aboriginal workforce. “The support from WPA allows us to fulfil our commitment to providing meaningful careers to Aboriginal people. We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity provided.” Wamarra is a Wiradjuri word meaning “to build”. In a first for their business, Wamarra, an Aboriginal owned and operated Victorian-based civil contractor, was awarded two landscaping contracts on the Level Crossing Removal Project by the Western Program Alliance (WPA), led by McConnell Dowell.
