Company Description

The company has developed from its early concentration on general building services to the current much wider scope in domestic, commercial, civil and industrial construction, as well as industrial transport. The company has continued the family tradition with Duane at the helm with vital corporate inputs from Garry and Sue as well as Matthew and Duane's wife Alex and many other hard working family members in the engine room of the business.

The GE Hughes approach continues to be the provision of high quality construction services, driven by the 'one stop source' principle. The company is a closely related series of divisions which operate extremely flexibly in various configurations to provide a total 'holistic' service to clients, removing much of the risk, expense and time wasting involved in dealing with multiple entities. The concept of a company with a 'family' of client divisions, provides an insight into the culture of 'building on Tradition', which is key to the 40 years plus GE Hughes journey.

Company Advantage

Our competitive advantage lies with our diversity. We are a 'one stop shop' for all building and construction, where seeing a building through from the first bucket in the ground to dig the footings, to the floors being laid and the last door hung on its hinges will be done by a GE Hughes employee.
Running our business this way allows us to program works to flow smoothly, without having to rely on the schedules of other contractors to fit in with what we require. We also own all of our own plant and machinery, with an in house maintenance division to ensure they keep running smoothly every time we use them.
