The Groundwork Group History & Profile


The Groundwork Group is a locally owned group of three companies: Groundwork Services Pty Ltd, Environmental Engineering Sales Australia Pty Ltd and Cairns Tactiles, with offices in Cairns and Townsville and has developed specialist skills and resources to cater for the individual needs of its clients since 1995. After initially entering the market in 1989, the company has provided services to a diverse range of customers by providing Environmental Engineering solutions across Tropical North Queensland, and now with the addition of Tactile Ground Surface Indicators and accessories.
 
The Groundwork Group of companies evolved first by the establishment of Groundwork Supply Company Pty Ltd in 1995 which became Groundwork Services Pty Ltd. Bill's Mini-Loader and Earthmoving, an established earthmoving company, joined the group in 2006 (but was later sold in 2014). In 2007 Environmental Engineering Sales Australia Pty Ltd was formed to supply innovative environmental products.
The most recent business endeavor taken on by The Groundwork Group has been the acquisition of Cairns Tactiles, the major provider of Tactile Ground Surface Indicators and associated accessories in the Far North Queensland region.
 
The group of companies aims to cater for the demand of specialist installations and supply of various environmental engineering products.
 
Since then the company has worked with the Mining Industry, Queensland Department of Main Roads, Queensland Rail, numerous Civil Contracting Firms and Local Government Authorities across the region. Groundwork Services specialise in Environmental Protection, Earth Stabilization and Retention and Stormwater Management.
 
The Groundwork Group represents World Class Manufacturers and supports Government Agencies, Local Authorities, the Mining Industry and Contractors.
 
With our extensive local knowledge and experience and the support of our Principals, we welcome opportunities to share our expertise in developing effective and appropriate solutions to your environmental protection; earth retention or stabilization and storm-water management problems.
