Aboriginal Participation in Construction

Decor Systems is delighted to support the Aboriginal Participation in Construction (APIC) policy that has been developed to support greater involvement by Aboriginal people in construction across NSW.

Managing Director David Faulkes is a direct descendant of Catherine Murp

hy (1813 – 1876). Catherine is

noted in official government archives as a ‘native of the colony’. She married Henry Stedman at Parramatta in 1837. Henry was transported to Australia from England for the crime of ‘stealing from his master’.

Our site rests on the traditional land of the Dharug people, adjacent to the Duck River wetlands in western Sydney. The Dharug nation is a language group of First Nations Australians who are the traditional custodians of much of what is modern day western Sydney.

David’s four children have an active interest in the business and seek to carry forward the rich legacy and heritage that is ours.

Decor Systems is an acknowledged signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, demonstrating our commitment to addressing the following issues in our business:

  • Environmental and Social Sustainability.
  • Treating all employees with fairness, respect and dignity and initiating employment opportunities which foster and reflect our diversity.
  • Anti-Corruption and Governance.
  • Sustainable Development.
  • Supply Chain Sustainability.
