         Austin’s son Stanley took over as Managing Director. Stanley continued to develop the company and its excellent repu-
         tation until he retired in 1994. His sons Bruce and Malcolm Edwards then took over the executive management of the
         company with Bruce becoming Managing Director in 1999. For over 19 years Bruce’s leadership and governance posi-
         tioned A W Edwards as a key player in the Australian Construction Industry.

         Construction, who have been specialising in complex construction projects around the world for more than 40 years. BBI
         operates across five continents employing over 50,000 people and a turnover exceeding A$17b per annum, the overall
         Bouygues Group has a turnover exceeding A$54b per annum.
