From concept to completion

Profile

Profile

Since 2006 Rocktown Pty Limited has been actively involved in the building of key infrastructure up and down the east coast of Australia. Through many successful partnerships with Australia's leading construction giants, we have earned the reputation as a company that delivers on time and within budget. Specializing in capital works, ground works, major road infrastructure and large facility projects, we know that no project is too big.

At Rocktown we embrace change - adapting to change is the key to survival in any industry and we are able to adjust our strategy when and wherever a specific need is identified. We prefer to take a proactive rather than reactive approach to industry and market fluctuations. This cultural identity is an integral part of Rocktown and one that will ensure the continued growth, financial success and sustainability of this thriving Australian-owned company.

Building on the past successes of our teamwork on the 3 major LNG projects in Australia being: Chevron-operated Gorgon Project, ALPNG Project Gladstone, ICHTHYS Project Darwin, Rocktown has become the sub-contractor of choice for the Tier 1's undertaking the current infrastructure expansion across the eastern seaboard.
