HistoryEdit

Abigroup was established as Graham Evans & Co in 1957 as a civil engineering company within New South Wales, being renamed Abignano in 1961. In 1981 it was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. In 1984 Abignano acquired Enacon followed in 1987 by Robert Salzer Constructions.[1][2]

In 1988 Abignano was renamed Abigroup following a management buyout and building company Hughes Bros was acquired.[1] In 2004 Abigroup was acquired by Bilfinger Berger. In December 2010 it was included in the sale of Bilfinger Berger Australia to Lendlease.[3] The brand was retired in 2013 as part of a restructure of Lendlease's construction business units.[4][5]
