Company History and Profile
2014

In 2014 Australian Facilities Group (AFG) was formed with the addition of Australian Facilities Landscapes (AFL).

AFL was formed upon a successful bid and subsequent 5-year contract to deliver Land Management Services to the Northern NSW Department of Defence Region.

Today

AFL directly employs a team of more than 160 and is structured in such a way to provide their client base with a comprehensive overall team that works together to achieve a common task – which is to offer a professional service to meet and exceed clients' needs and expectations.

Our Offices

The offices of Australian Facilities Landscapes are situated in Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle, with regional offices from Sydney through to Tweed Heads. The business services their customers 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, via a dedicated AFG Help Desk.

Trusted business partnerships through the provision of professional services, qualified and dedicated staff.
Since November 2014, Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions (BGIS) have engaged Australian Facilities Landscapes for the provision of all grounds and landscaping services on our Department of Defence contract.

"During this time the AFL team have demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, flexibility and high work ethic. In a very challenging and demanding environment, their management team are always approachable and willing to provide us with solutions to any issues arising.

Their technical knowledge is second to none. Their compliance and focus on WHS is of the highest calibre. AFL have indeed delivered a true partnership approach and aligned with our organisation to deliver high service levels to our client and I thoroughly recommend their services."
