Barpa Construction Company

At Icon, we are not only passionate about delivering unmatched construction services, but also
supporting and implementing valuable societal change. In efforts to support the Indigenous community
across Australia, we have formed a thriving partnership with the Federation of Victorian Traditional

Owner Corporation, and created ‘Barpa’ – a standalone, majority Indigenous owned and operated
construction company.

What are Barpa Construction Services?

Barpa has grown to become a model for Indigenous entrepreneurship, empowerment and business. It continues to build on the strengths of the two entities to offer an Indigenous solution for capital works projects and construction services. The company represents a synergy between the oldest continuous culture in the world and the oldest construction company in Australia. With offices located across Australia, Barpa has national coverage, offering a full construction capability that includes experience delivering in regional and remote locations. Barpa’s goal is to use the opportunities available in the construction industry to create a platform that enables investment in Indigenous programmes and initiatives as driven by the priorities of our community of Indigenous owners.
