About us

Our Story

Groundex is an Australian and employee-owned business, providing ground improvement solutions for clients in the Infrastructure, Resources and Building sectors.

Established in mid 2023, Groundex is one of several specialist contracting entities within the Ertech Group, a four-decade-strong engineering and construction enterprise.

Our strength and value lie in the deep technical and geotechnical expertise backed by a financially sound group with established managements systems.

Groundex provides engineered solutions centred on geotechnical expertise to manage the risks associated with groundworks.

Groundex was founded to offer bored pile contracting services to the Western Australia market, catering specifically to medium-sized specialised piling projects, and with a particular emphasis on design and construct contracts.

We bolster your project success by providing strong foundations for you to build upon.

The Groundex Difference

Our expert team draw on decades of hands-on experience to create and deliver innovative engineered solutions that provide clients with the utmost assurance in the strength of their foundations.

With our roots firmly in Australian soil, we are employee-owned and are committed to self-performing, with the technical know-how to deliver your project to the highest standard.

We’re here for the long game and have the financial strength and systems to support our long-term vision.

Whether we’re working with clients, suppliers, or sister companies providing complementary services, good business is about great partnerships, and we value those connections.

Our Vision

Our vision is to utilise our team’s deep experience and extensive knowledge to engineer clever and innovative ground engineering solutions for our clients. 

Simply put it means that every day we are guided and driven to use our know-how and resources to build strong foundations for the projects we work on and with the people we work for.

Every day and every project brings a new challenge – and we love a challenge – so from commencement to completion our talent teams are inspired to find better ways, deliver better outcomes, and leave a lasting legacy for our clients and the community in which we operate.

“Ground Ingenuity” means we engineer clever technical solutions that optimise ground foundations, enabling our clients to build with maximum confidence.
