About Coastal Works

Coastal Works is  a civil contracting organisation specialising in municipal works and services, such as roads, bridges, water and sewer, earthworks and stormwater drainage.  Our capabilities also extend to the maintenance of civil infrastructure and open spaces vegetation control and management.

Coastal Works focuses on providing client solutions by applying a broad experience gained over many years in the industry.  Our management systems ensure that a quality service is delivered at a reasonable price.  Client priorities and timeframes become ours when you engage Coastal Works.

It has been an interesting journey for Coastal Works to bring us to this point in our history.   In 2009 the preparation works for the upgrade of the Pacific Highway between Sapphire and Woolgoolga were underway.  Coffs Harbour City Council and the Roads and Maritime Services entered into an Alliance contract to relocate the water and sewer mains and services for the upgrade.  Coastal Works as the business arm of Council was the Alliance Contractor, who carried out the works over an 18 month period valued at $17.5M.

From the Highway project the commercial opportunities continued to grow.  Coastal Works undertook works for Government Agencies such as ARTC, Dept of Education, Dept of Public Works and RMS.  Civil construction projects were also completed for larger developments in the Coffs Harbour area.

Coastal Works is now an established provider of civil contracting services including:

      • Roads, bridges, drainage
      • Water and sewer reticulation and pump station construction
      • Mechanical and electrical maintenance of water and sewer infrastructure
      • Vegetation maintenance and weed spraying services
