Working in and around live environments is our strength. We have mature policies and procedures in place to deliver projects safely and efficiently.

Our people, combined with our previous experience within other parts of the business has helped shape our ability to work within operational facilities and to deliver projects safely and efficiently through extremely strong communication with all stakeholders.

These complex projects are where we add real value.

Projects where stakeholders are in close proximity of the works and special safety considerations need to be enforced, projects with critical infrastructure that cannot be shut down without extensive consultation and where the contractor is required to think through the construction sequencing methodically to ensure success, often through early contractor involvement (ECI). St Hilliers and their project teams have extensive experience in undertaking projects of this nature in the following sectors:

Education – government and private;

Health – government and private;

Aged Care / Retirement Living;

Community Infrastructure; and

Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) delivery.

The St Hilliers team have consistently demonstrated a strong commitment to the project with absolute integrity and professionalism.

From a client perspective, the team was always approachable and offered ongoing advice and support throughout the construction of the project and I would not hesitate in recommending this team.
