Construction | case study


Newearth Constructions is a family-based business of experienced civil engineering contractors with strong ties to Romsey that stretch back to the early 1900s. They’ve built a solid reputation for their expertise in local urban development and infrastructure projects that have helped to build and shape the Macedon Ranges Shire . As the region’s contractor of choice, Newearth Constructions offers a multi-skilled and flexible workforce that can deliver on a variety of tasks.

Committed to innovating, adapting and incorporating changes in civil engineering technology, Newearth Constructions have made recent improvements to their workshop with the introduction of solar power, as well as upgrades to increase fuel efficiency. GPS technology and connectivity are also critical to their business operation so more tasks are now being performed online, improving productivity and enhancing the interface between field workers and the office team. The benefits have outweighed the capital outlay resulting in operational savings and reduced emissions.

Newearth Constructions partners with other local businesses wherever possible because they understand the value of creating community relationships to achieve success. They take pride in their long history of investing back into the community and offer sustainable, fulfilling employment to local people who can leave a lasting legacy by delivering services and projects throughout the region.

Why Loddon Mallee?


The Macedon Ranges is well positioned to grow and further build on the benefits of being close to a major capital city while enjoying a regional lifestyle.

“The Lodden Mallee region has good transport connections, strong local businesses who supply us with materials and services. The ongoing growth and investment into the region supports the sustainability of our business as we rely on infrastructure investment and residential development as a cornerstone of our business,” says Mick McCarthy.

“Having up-to-date equipment and practises makes our workplace more attractive – workers are trained in the latest technology available to the industry. They’re also attracted by the prospect of operating later-model equipment that not only boasts technological advancements but also improved safety features.”

“It’s easy to move around and link up with a strong group of local businesses to support our operation. We get to experience a great diversity of tasks due to the different terrain and materials. With further investment in the region, we get to work on projects that leave a legacy for the region in which we live and work.”

“You need to be prepared to invest in people to make a successful entry into a regional area. It’s likely that not all of the skills that you need will exist, but there is a great willingness from many people to ‘have a go’. Develop a strong network of suppliers and partner with like-minded clients – it’s important that there’s mutual support and cooperation.”
– Mick McCarthy, General Manager
