Commissioning is a critical stage in the life of any facility. A series of vital checks prior to on-stream operation, thorough commissioning services will mitigate project risk and help to achieve performance goals right from the start.

The ultimate goal of new infrastructure is to operate as planned from ‘day one’. At UGL, it’s our job to prove the integrity of all systems, identifying and fine-tuning design and construction to achieve optimal results for our clients.

UGL’s complete in-house commissioning capability is there to ensure these new assets and critical interfaces comply with the original design specification. The benefit for operators comes from UGL’s expanded knowledge and experience in addressing those issues rarely encountered during typical daily usage. Clients benefit from the training provided which up-skill staff to underpin an operation’s long-term success.

The safe and efficient operation of every facility is our goal. UGL takes complete responsibility for commissioning, whether we start in the engineering office, provide expertise in the fabrication yard, or mobilise to a remote area. From high-performance locomotives to cleaner and more efficient power stations, advanced water treatment plants, and robust mining equipment, our commissioning capabilities span a wide variety of sectors.

Construct is the next phase in a project lifecycle, where an engineering design concept comes to life for an essential piece of infrastructure. From robust planning to integrated design, efficient procurement, optimised construction and seamless transition to operation, every aspect of UGL's construction delivery model is focused on achieving aligned outcomes for clients. With resources across the region and highly refined systems and procedures, we offer tailored solutions to meet and exceed client expectations.


Fabricate is a value-added process employing various raw materials supporting both manufacturing and construction activities. With several sites strategically placed around Australia, UGL provides a full range of fabrication, field welding qualification and quality control services. Established systems and expertise allow us to offer clients a full end-to-end solution, inclusive of design, detailing, fabrication, machining, site installation and field services. UGL has an established international supply chain network which can be utilised to minimise costs.


UGL continues to set the benchmark in performance, reliability, flexibility and profitability for clients with our portfolio of manufactured products. Combining capabilities across the company from our experience in manufacturing, integration, operations and support we have the ability to design products to meet the most demanding user requirements.


Commissioning is critical to the life of any project or asset. The commission process involves a series of vital checks prior to operation. UGL's complete commissioning service plays an important role in negating risk and reaching performance goals right from the first turn of the key.


After the delivery of a project, UGL continues to support clients by ensuring the reliable operation of their newly acquired assets. Our operational capability is tailored to meet today's exacting availability expectations.

UGL's supply chain and technical services are key elements in providing strategic maintenance and component replacement, installation, technical and support activities.

Refurbish & Upgrade

Asset refurbishment to maintain and extend the life of existing plant and equipment can defer investment cost and be of major benefit. UGL draws on our wealth of experience in the refurbishment and upgrade of assets to deliver innovative salvage capabilities enabling restoration of used assets to near-original condition and specification in order to extend asset life.


Infrastructure assets have finite economic lives. UGL has the capability to restore client sites to greenfield status in a safe, cost effective and environmentally conscious manner. For rail products and industrial equipment, UGL delivers decommissioning solutions to optimise an asset's recycling potential. We support end-of-life assets, client succession and renewal strategies as part of our whole of life cycle offering.
