NXT TEC. Ltd's long-term vision is to be a leading global provider of innovative building solutions used in the development of sustainable buildings, cities and communities.
Our key objectives are:
To create shareholder value by driving innovation in global construction.
To apply our specialist capabilities in engineering and design to rapidly deploy a diversity of medium-large scale projects and deliver ground-breaking results in quality, time and cost efficiencies.
To improve the construction quality, reduce the housing shortage and increase local employment in developing countries and disaster zones.
Chief amongst the core values of NXT TEC. is integrity. Our aim is to work only with staff, partners, advisors and suppliers who have integrity. For us, that means:
Dealing professionally, ethically, and respectfully with everyone we do business with;
Delivering high-quality solutions that provide real, tangible value to our customers; and
Working sustainably to provide solutions that deliver social benefits, jobs and dignity to the communities in which we operate.
NXT TEC., its founders and management team are guided by the Japanese principle of Kaizen – the practice of continuous improvement. We are perpetually innovating in all parts of our business because we know this is a critical way in which to stay relevant and to maintain competitive advantage.
NXT aims to revolutionise the global construction industry, currently worth US$9 trillion, by providing lower cost, higher quality buildings for governments and private developers that need to complete large-scale projects quickly, even on difficult sites.
NXT operates in Australia, where it has a deep understanding of the commercial property market and the local construction industry.
NXT is expanding its operations to enable it to pursue suitable projects internationally, particularly in developing and emerging countries where large-scale projects exist and where the “triple bottom line” of economic, social and environmental benefits can be more readily achieved.
NXT has engaged with local stakeholders at both private and government levels in a number of countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
