History & Group

Our first operations in the region can be traced back more than 45 years, to the early 1970’s, when Bachy, then an independent company, first entered the Australian construction market.

Menard Oceania is the Australian subsidiary of Menard and part of Soletanche Freyssinet Group, who are world leaders in geotechnical, environmental and civil engineering construction. With a proven track record of more than 45 years, Menard has a history of providing cost effective ground improvement solutions for some of Australia’s largest infrastructure and construction projects.


Today, Menard continues to set the industry standard for ground improvement engineering in Australia. We offer deep local expertise, helping clients in Australia and New Zealand, understand the unique geotechnical conditions across the region. This expertise is backed up by a global network of unparalleled resource and experience.
