Manteena is delighted to announce that it has achieved ISO 27001 certification for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). The certification and audit process was conducted by Equal Assurance.

ISO 27001 is a system of processes, documents, technology and people to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information, through a risk management process that guarantees the safe processing of data, thus providing peace of mind and building trust among all stakeholders.

Gareth Hunt, the Business Systems Manager for Manteena explains, “This certification provides high level validation of Manteena’s information storage and management practices across our Security and Commercial areas of the business”.

“It also provides clients with validation that their information is secure”.

Andrew Kemp, Manteena Security General Manager added, “We are now a construction industry leader with this certification, reinforcing Manteena as a frontrunner in delivery of security outcomes”.

The ISO 27001 certification further compliments Manteena’s recently acquired Department of Defence DISP accreditation and ISO31000 Risk Management certification.

Manteena is now accredited with DISP membership through the Department of Defence.
The Defence Industry Security Program (DISP) is an initiative of the Department of Defence to accredit companies who meet their high levels of integrity requirements around protection of people, information and assets. The program aims to protect against security threats to Australian businesses and through them sensitive Government information. This is achieved by ensuring that accredited companies comply with stringent controls around:

Manteena Security General Manager, Andrew Kemp said, “Achieving DISP membership further demonstrates Manteena’s commitment toward improving security within our operating environment and strengthening our security practices more broadly across the business”.

“Manteena is proud to support Defence in protecting its assets and information through its involvement in this program and delivery of projects for the Commonwealth”.

Following the departure of Simon Butt, incumbent Director & General Manager Mark Bauer has now been appointed Manteena Group CEO. On Monday 23 August, it was announced that Simon was stepping aside from his daily role of Chief Executive Officer, shareholder, and director of the companies making up the Manteena Group. Mark will focus on the executive management across Manteena’s three main business streams: commercial, security and residential—whilst still maintaining a strategic operational role for all commercial works.
“Although the industry is facing significant challenges during the pandemic, Manteena is well positioned both financially and at an operational level with its capability and capacity to ride out this wave,” Mark said.
“We are looking ahead to the construction industry rebounding from the current pandemic situation and I’m really excited to expand my role and lead the Manteena Group into the next phase of its development”.
Mark is a director of Manteena – a position he’s held since 2000. In 2004, he was given responsibility for the general management of all Canberra activities as Canberra Branch Manager, in response to the strategic expansion of the company to include business operations in other regions. Mark officially became General Manager in 2008 and now succeeds Simon Butt in the role of Chief Executive Officer.
Manteena Group CEO Simon Butt has announced that he is stepping aside from his daily role of Chief Executive Officer, shareholder, and director of the companies making up the Manteena Group, effective 13 August 2021.
Simon started with Manteena in 1989, when company founder John Hailey employed him as a Project Manager. In 1994, Simon was invited into the business as a shareholder and upon John’s retirement, he then assumed the role of CEO to lead the company through a period of significant growth and expansion. In a career spanning 42 years, Simon has made a significant contribution to Manteena and the construction industry, particularly in the role of National President of the Master Builders Australia (2019-current).
Simon has had the fortune of working on and being associated with projects at many of the iconic national institutions, which make Canberra such a special place: National Gallery of Australia, National Library of Australia, Old Parliament House, Parliament House, Australian War Memorial and Anzac Parade.
The team at Manteena, both past and present, wish to extend their best wishes to Simon in his future endeavours and thank him for his outstanding contribution to the company.

Manteena Security is excited to release a project video of a recent installation completed for Aquaterro. Supported by our partner Action Target, Manteena were commissioned to turn-key the design, supply and installation of a 100m indoor shooting range.

It was a pleasure working with the team at Aquaterro on this world-class shooting range and one that sets the standard for commercial ranges here in Australia.

Museum of Australian Democracy |

Manteena’s experience in heritage buildings within the parliamentary triangle has been called for again with the appointment of Manteena Security as the Managing Contractor for the Lighting and HVAC upgrades at the Museum of Australian Democracy – Old Parliament House.

The works, which will be delivered in 2 phases, aims to improve building energy efficiency: replacing end-of-life, inoperable and unserviceable heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment; and enhance the lighting throughout the building, including exhibition areas, by installing energy efficient LED lighting.

Works onsite are expected to commence early 2019.

Samoan Parliament House |

The Honourable Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi, Prime Minister of Samoa, and Her Excellency Sara Moriarty, Australian High Commissioner to Samoa, recently inspected progress of the Samoa Parliament project.

Manteena Project Director, Peita de Boer, GMB Principal Architect, Hal Guida, and GMB Project Architect, Will Gardner, were all present in Apia to guide the dignitaries through the almost completed complex.

The project is jointly funded by the Government of Australia and the Government of Samoa.

The building is nearing completion with the incredible sense of light and space above the debating chamber becoming apparent with the scaffold recently removed, and the Prime Minster and High Commissioner were most impressed with the high quality of workmanship by the majority Samoan workforce on site. The project is seen as a key enabler for local capacity building in the construction industry, and the technology being integrated into the debating chamber will be a quantum leap forward and is intended to support parliamentary operations for the next 50 years.

Systems re-certification until 2021 |

Manteena is pleased to announce it has achieved re-certification of the following Australian and International Standards: Occupational (Work) Health & Safety Management AS/NZS 4801:2001; Quality Management AS NZS ISO 9001:2015; Environmental Management AS NZS ISO 14001:2015; and Risk Management AS NZS ISO 31000:2009.

The systems which underpin Manteena’s business operations were recently subject to a successful recertification audit by International Certifications (ICL) for another 3 years. Of significance to this audit was the transitioning from the old AS NZS ISO 9001:2008 and AS NZS ISO 14001:2004 standards to the updated AS NZS ISO 9001: 2015 and AS NZS ISO 14001: 2015 standards.

Integrated Systems Manager, Robert Walters, explained that significant work was required to re-align and in some cases re-write our established systems. This process warranted the documentation achieving the requirements of the new standards, yet still maintained the functional aspect within our business operations.

“The recertification and transition process ensure the validity and strength of our systems and their ability to comply with the strict international standards and criteria. Without which Manteena would not be able to tender for federally funded works,” Robert said.

The audit clearly demonstrated the evolution and compliance of the systems, which was validated by senior management and each project team working across the company throughout the audit period.

“It’s a very encouraging result,” says Robert, “and a clear demonstration that the systems used both corporately and on-site are closely aligned to the established documented systems and the standards. This in turn has resulted in Manteena gaining recertification with ICL to the new and existing standards until 2021”.
