About CMC Group

Watch Our Story

CMC Road Works

At CMC we are committed to delivering excellence in all areas of our business. Whether it’s laying bridge foundations, upgrading a road, or liaising with the local community, we believe that excellence in service is the responsibility of all staff, at all levels of the project team.

Our core philosophy of ‘building the future’ is upheld by working closely with clients to ensure each project is delivered safely, on-time, and on-budget. Likewise, we aim to exceed all expectations in terms of environment, quality and community through the experience of our people, and through the implementation of our management systems.

As a business we actively seek out and employ the best people in the industry, and nurture their development. We don’t do this just because we want to grow as a business, but because we want to ensure exceptional outcomes for our clients and the communities we work within.

Integrity And Honesty

We are honest and ethical in everything we do and we keep our commitments.

Hard Work And Persistence

We work hard to deliver the best outcomes for our clients and, in turn, ourselves. We strive to continually improve in everything we do.

The CMC Advantage

Smarter solutions

We provide our clients with a strong sense of certainty, that by working smarter we will achieve faster construction, safer work practices, and cost effective outcomes.

Flexibility & commercial agility

With private ownership comes flexibility, agility, and the capacity to make quick decisions that accelerate programs and tailor solutions at any time during the project cycle.

Quality at a competitive Price

Delivering quality at a competitive price, and providing our clients with the value for money they seek, is how we measure the success of our projects, our people and our business.

Expectations exceeded

Our objective is to pursue excellence in everything we do by seeking out opportunities and smart solutions that exceed expectations; not simply meet the minimum requirement.
