About Us

In 2001, the founders of the ARA Group, Edward Federman and Leo Browne, strategically planned the development of a complimentary group of building and infrastructure services. ARA has currently completed its fifteenth year of business with a record turnover of $352 million.

The ARA Group employs more than 1300 skilled people in Australia and New Zealand.

The ARA Group is an employee owned company. Over sixty employees are shareholders of ARA. From the beginning, the founders of ARA have taken steps to build an organisation that will continue for the next generation.

The ARA Group is passionate about the positive role the company plays in society. We believe that it is our responsibility to give back to the communities in which we work and live and hope that together we can create a lasting legacy of support for the communities in which we work and operate.


Our workplace giving program was established to provide our employees with a simple, cost effective way to make small regular donations into one core fund through payroll deduction. By harnessing the strength of our workforce, we are able to make a bigger impact with our collective contributions.
