About Us

We do the difficult

With a team as passionate and experienced as ours, it’s easy to push the limit of what’s possible.

Over McCorkell’s 95-year history, we’ve delivered projects that are challenging, technically complex, and often far from typical. In fact, most of our projects are delivered in and around operational facilities – we consider ourselves to be live environment specialists. We thrive in situations where innovation, perseverance and teamwork are the keys to success.

Throughout our time in the industry, we’ve worked across all major industry sectors, including government and private sector clients – and that’s still the case today. Our long history of repeat business, primarily in the institutional sectors, has cemented us as one of the leaders in our field. With offices in Victoria and Western Australia, we might look like a big company – but McCorkell is still a family-owned business at heart, backed by a close-knit team of incredible people. Our team is nimble and we pride ourselves on our meticulous attention to detail and adaptable skillset. So no matter the size, complexity or logistical challenges of a project – we’ll make it happen.

Our collaborative methods are an essential part of our approach to client satisfaction.

Our Approach

Our solution-based thinking and collaborative methods are an essential part of our approach to client satisfaction. We work with our clients and keep them informed along the way, allowing us to mitigate any potential issues that arise. We’ve had great success through our non-adversarial approach to project delivery – by making sure our team, clients and subcontractors are all on the same page, we can work co-operatively towards bringing the project to life.

Zero Harm Construction

At McCorkell, we’re committed to completing projects efficiently, professionally, and above all, safely. We proudly maintain the highest standards for Occupational Health and Safety on all our projects with a third-party accredited Safety Management System, certified to ISO 45001 as part of our Integrated Management System (IMS). Our Victorian business is also proud to be accredited under the Federal Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme. Thanks to our ‘Zero Harm’ approach to construction and safe operating practices, we’ve achieved Lost Time Injury Frequency Rates well below the industry benchmark.

Financial Strength

As a cash flow positive business, we trade without debt, meet financial commitments, and pay our subcontractors on time. Financial integrity is vital to McCorkell: it’s one of the cornerstones of our relationships with our clients and subcontractors. It’s also something we look for in potential clients. We strive to form partnerships with like-minded businesses who share our stability and business ethics.
