Our on-behalf consent applications, risk management plans, extensive insurances, Quality Management System, and first-rate communication channels are designed for end-to-end client satisfaction. Whether you require indicative pricing for a small-scale project, or a QS-based (quantity-based) quote for a large-scale demolition, we’ll design a solution to suit.

Innovative Solutions
All demolition projects benefit from end-to-end contractor involvement, complex problem-solving skills, and highly flexible resourcing. Our modern fleet and plant includes 1 ton diggers, 65 ton excavators, loaders, bulldozers, scrapers, and dump trucks, all serviced by our in-house mechanical engineers. Our 20-30 ton long reach excavators have a range of hydraulic attachments designed for demolition, including a grab for removal, shears to cut through steel, and a nibbler to crush concrete. With state-of-the-art GPS technologies, we’re able to execute zero-harm demolitions.

Top Quality Teamwork
We invest heavily in our people to ensure we maintain a high-performing team. Our hands-on company directors lead by example with over 60 years of civil construction experience, while our dedicated project and site managers maximise all resources to ensure exceptional results. With more than 180 highly skilled construction specialists, including labourers, drain layers, mechanics, engineers, quantity surveyors, and financial managers, we deliver to the highest industry standards.

Comprehensive Health & Safety
Our active Health and Safety Team works on every demolition project to guarantee total staff engagement and company-wide safety excellence. Our environmental consultants understand the complexities of demolition, including safe disposal of lead, or asbestos. We offer contaminant sampling by request and recycle to minimise waste to landfill. We uphold comprehensive health and safety practices, including daily safety meetings, Site Specific Safety Plans, environmental management, and Safe Work Method Statements. With regular internal and external site audits, we’re committed to zero-harm projects.

Delivery with integrity is the key to our longevity in the civil construction industry. From start-to-finish, we maximise resources via real-time cost-tracking with Workbench™ and our daily company-wide progress reports keep everything on track.
