I have been working with Shadforths on master planned communities for over four years. During this time, Shadforths have completed close to $100 million worth of contracts in various locations around Queensland. Shadforths have a culture amongst their employees that is client focused and they make a genuine effort to meet the needs and requirements of all project stakeholders.Damion MacDonald - Associate, Covey Associates Pty Ltd
In my dealings with Shadforths, it is clear that their focus on compliance delivers outcomes of a quality that is above industry standard.
Shadforths also have the capability to deliver large scale projects in timeframes that for most civil contractors would not be achievable. An example of this is the Riverstone Rise project where they completed over 640,000m³ of bulk earthworks in hard rock conditions, 6000m² of retaining walls, over 29,000m² of roads, 3.6 km of stormwater, 5.2km sewer, 3.6km water and 4.6km of electrical reticulation in just under seven months. During this time, they also completed an external intersection upgrade to the value of $2.7 million, a regional pump station, a 520m tunnel bore under the Boyne River, as well as a major pit at the Boyne Island Treatment Plant. The total value of this package was just over $30 million.
When working with Shadforths, I have always been able to rely on their team to be flexible, approachable and always willing to meet the requirements of the key stakeholders involved in the project. This culture has always ensured that project timeframes, budgets and construction outcomes are achieved with minimal fuss and aggravation.
In all my dealings with Shadforths, I have found them to be a highly competent and compliant company, with an approachable, flexible and outcome focussed culture amongst its team members.Brett Taylor - Director, Lexen
Their ability to deliver large projects with complex construction activities in a timely manner is a credit to the capability of their employees.
Shadforths have often demonstrated their willingness to communicate openly and effectively with the key stakeholders and continually look for solutions to the problems they are faced with, rather than push them back onto the client.
Over the past 14 months I have worked closely with Shadforths to construct over 1200 lots in the Pimpama area for multiple developers. These works have included trunk infrastructure, bulk earthworks, retaining walls, and underground services. Much of these works were constructed during wet weather, which created significant challenges with subgrades.
As a solution to this, Shadforths brought to us a construction methodology to mechanically mix hydrated lime into the subgrade using road stabilising equipment. This methodology successfully bridged underlying poor subgrades and provided an impermeable surface that allowed road construction to proceed immediately after significant weather events.
Overall I have found Shadforths to be an innovative company who have a strong focus on relationships.

High compliance and performance to set timeframes
Shadforths work is of high quality, and their WH&S and Environmental understanding is excellent.
Shadforths are flexible, approachable and were focused on our key deliverables.
It is in my opinion that very few contractors in the Residential Sub-division market could have achieved these outcomes within the specified timeframe and budget.
