Australian Enterprise Awards 2021

59 APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2021 , As the most experienced dam builders in Australia, Big Ditch Dam Company can help its clients save money by offering expert advice. Going into further detail, Angus provides a brief overview of the firm and offers more insight into its clientele. “Every single working day of the year, you will find us building a dam and fixing the mistakes of experienced earthmovers. Having built more dams than any other company, we can guarantee our builds will last for at least 10 years. With a reputation based on expertise, authority, and trustworthiness, we continue to lead the dam construction industry.” Across Australia the firm are in direct competition with several other dam construction companies, however as Angus goes on to explain, his experience stands above anyone else in the industry. “The most important single quality of a successful dam builder is experience and having completed 321 dams over the last 15 years this is something we have a huge amount of. Experience can be such an overused word, particularly when earthmovers pretend to be knowledgeable about building dams.” To offer its clients a unique selling point, the firm specialise in waterproofing its clients future as Angus elaborates further. “Here at Big Ditch Dam Company, our permaculture water storages are designed to be visually stunning, while being functional as a rain harvesting catchment and protecting our clients future.” Previously, Angus used to have a lot of employees working for him but this only complicated things further as he points out. “As nobody had the same standards as me, it was difficult to achieve my goals. Alongside me now, I have an apprentice who knows what my standards are, and that I will not accept anything less than perfection. Working now as an artisan opposed to running a business has certainly made life much easier.” With Australia recently suffering the worst drought in its history, the firm has three years’ worth of work on the table as Angus explains further.
