SHEPHERD has a proud history of assisting Local Government with specialist asset management, GIS and civil engineering services, and has established a trusted reputation for delivering innovative, practical, and technically excellent outcomes.

SHEPHERD first established itself as experts in road management assisting regional and remote councils with specialist asset management and GIS services.  In response to our clients’ need for an accurate, portable and affordable electronic road survey tool to better inform road maintenance programs, the team developed RACAS® – SHEPHERD’s own Road Asset Condition Assessment System.

The business diversified into civil project management, specialising in disaster recovery and flood restoration projects, in 2016 and now offers a fully integrated service including project and contract management, GIS and systems support, and asset accounting support. 

From these strong foundations the business has continued to grow, and today SHEPHERD remains a leader in road asset management and an emerging leader in disaster recovery systems.

Our suite of integrated services builds on our ability to provide a powerful and accurate database, streamlined and automated processes and expert advice from which our clients can make informed business decisions. 

However, technical excellence, innovation, and value of money outcomes that work for our clients and improve local communities, remain the cornerstones of the SHEPHERD approach.
