SYSTRA ANZ is pleased to announce the acquisition of Bamser, an Australian based infrastructure advisory firm providing multi-disciplinary services to the transport, utilities, mining and energy sectors.
With offices in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, Bamser have delivered city shaping projects extensively across Australia and into Asia.
‘We’ve been involved in some of the largest infrastructure projects in Australia and overseas and look forward to adding our expertise to one of world’s leading engineering and consulting groups, specialised in public transport and mobility solutions.’ – Tim Brown, Director, Bamser.
‘By combining our strengths, SYSTRA in design and Bamser in delivery, our current and future clients gain a broader service offering across more of the project lifecycle, from the advisors that they know and trust.’ – Ben Crosby, Director, Bamser.
Renowned for their excellence in underground engineering, the transaction boosts SYSTRA’s position as a leading global player in complex tunnelling, coming after the 2021 acquisition of SWS, a leading tunnelling design firm based in Italy.
‘As we look to continue the growth of our cities and move to a net zero future, tunnelling provides a solution to enable mass transit along with providing opportunities for energy storage and creation through dams, pumped hydro and trenchless projects. We are excited to further bolster our global offering in complex engineering solutions and add to our global expertise in bridges and tunnels with the acquisition of Bamser.
With a large pipeline of major infrastructure projects to be delivered, and significant skills shortage in the tunnelling space, our clients and partners will benefit from our expanded service offering, deepening our global leadership in underground engineering and bringing it to the ANZ market at a time when most needed’ – Alana Newbrook, CEO, SYSTRA ANZ

As SYSTRA continues its growth across ANZ, Chris will be responsible for leading the newly formed Major Projects team – established to focus on the successful delivery of major projects for our clients, partners, and the communities we serve.
“2022 was a huge year for Systra in ANZ; we won our largest intake of orders in major projects as we successfully pivoted to taking on larger roles in complex projects. Due to the success of this strategy, it was clear we needed a new division dedicated to delivery. Chris was the obvious choice and has what it takes to lead this newly formed team,” says Alana Newbrook, CEO SYSTRA ANZ.
Alana adds, “Chris is well-known to many of our clients, having been part of the SYSTRA team for the last five years. He brings to the role extensive experience managing complex major infrastructure projects; most recently leading our operational integration teams delivering train control systems projects across ANZ. Under Chris’s leadership, the team will ensure that we not only continue to provide outstanding delivery to our clients, but we also grow our reputation as the partner of choice and signature team for transport solutions across ANZ.”
The creation of a new role and team for Major Projects is exciting to not just further strengthen and grow our own team, but to bring more of the global SYSTRA skill sets to our local clients. “I am excited to take on this new role overseeing a larger portfolio of complex projects,” says Chris.
“SYSTRA ANZ has been growing steadily for the last couple of years on the back of some significant wins. I’m looking forward to working with our teams in Australia, New Zealand and across SYSTRA to capitalise on this growth momentum and deliver world-class infrastructure solutions for our clients.”
With over two decades experience in project delivery and consulting roles, Chris has worked on numerous large-scale infrastructure projects including West Coast Route Modernisation in the UK and the roll out of the European Train Control System in Southeast Queensland.
SYSTRA ANZ’s mission is to be there where it matters; on the complex projects with the greatest impact, providing innovative solutions that will shape the future of our communities. As one of the world’s leading engineering and consulting groups, we are focused on building tomorrow’s mobility solutions today. Operating in more than 80 countries, we have designed 1 in 2 of the world’s metros and highspeed rail lines. The ANZ team is an integral part of part of our global network, backed by 9000+ experts, providing us the unique ability to be agile with global scale.
