Looking after government property and assets in our nation’s capital.

The ACT might be Australia’s smallest territory, but it is home to one of Ventia’s largest clients: the Australian Federal Government. 

Years of operating in Canberra have given us a strong track record in supplying a range of services to government departments – none more important than the Department of Defence, which we are proud to support not only in the ACT but across the entire country. 

As a Top 10 industry partner to Defence, we actively drive a collaborative and trusted relationship to support various groups and individual services of the Australian Defence Force (ADF). We do this via a range of asset, property and facilities management and other related services.  

In Canberra, in particular we support the Australian Defence Force Academy and the Royal Military College sites. We’re also proud to have a long history as suppliers of military clothing and kitting to Australia’s Defence men and women, providing specialised combat uniforms, equipment and tactical gear.

We also provide a large range of services to other government departments and entities, including land management and property maintenance services at 1,188 sites across Australia. 

As one of the largest telecommunication services providers in Australia, we have delivered a significant portion of the national broadband network for NBN Co and have worked with our carrier clients through most rounds of the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spots Program. 

Ventia is a member of two PFAS Special Research Initiative grants with the Australian Research Council worth over $2 million. These grants - with the University of Queensland, University of Newcastle, University of Adelaide, the CSIRO and other industry partners - focus on developing new and innovative PFAS remediation technologies. We are also collaborating with national science and testing bodies on research that has been used to inform the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment’s PFAS National Environmental Management Plan version 2.0 (NEMP 2.0).  

Some of our work in the ACT

Australian Army combat uniforms

We proudly supplied the new Australian Multi Camouflage Uniform to 1,300 Canberra-region army personnel, which included around 41,000 individual uniform items. To deliver in a tight timeframe, our team centralised the packing and consolidation of items in a warehouse at the Holsworthy Barracks, just south of Sydney. This lower-cost alternative to local commercial warehousing enabled more rapid assembly of items, which were subsequently shipped directly to the Australian Defence Force Academy clothing store in Canberra for distribution.

Department of Finance

We provide a host of expert Property services to multiple Australian Government departments nationally through a single contract with the Department of Finance. These include property management, capital works, lease administrations, facilities and asset management, reactive maintenance, help desk services, environment and heritage management, contract management and relocation services. Since the commencement of the contract in 2017 we have achieved savings in excess of $10 million in operational expenditure and more than $100 million in lease transactions.
