Our Story
& Vision

BY Group was started in 2014 by 3 Bundjalung men. Their vision was to create economic independence and help Indigenous people secure sustainable employment in the building and construction industry.

Watch our story > 

Our vision is to be a leading Indigenous-owned and operated business in the construction industry.

As an Indigenous business our commitment to increasing Indigenous participation is not just a function of doing business, it is our business.

Community is at the core of our company. It’s our focus. We partner with community organisations and businesses to grow and develop the Indigenous supply chain together.

We are professionals. Our senior team of experienced industry professionals delivers best-in-class projects. We support and nurture our staff and invest in the development of our talent.

Our logo features the eagle’s wing, the totem of our Aboriginal Directors who descend from the Bundjalung nation. It represents ‘strength’. The wings are the driving force of the eagle, creating powerful momentum on its journey. The subtle contrast of colour represents the movement of water flowing through the river on Bundjalung country, each movement creating a ripple effect.

Our motto ‘By Us for Us’ signifies our mission to create opportunities for Indigenous people and our goal to build sustainable employment and economic independence.
