With over 2 decades of experience in the construction and development industry, Douglas Construction & Engineering Pty Ltd (DCE) is still underpinned by the values it was built on. Quality, transparency, partnership and safety. Quality of workmanship and service. Transparency in all our dealings with project stakeholders. An intense focus on the safety of our team, on and off site and the fervent pursuit of developing partnerships that provide all participants with value while meeting project goals.
It started with a single project, 2 employees and an ambitious dream. In 1998, operating out of a home office, Douglas Construction & Engineering Pty Ltd was born. The business initially focused on projects where business’s required new factories and warehouses to support their growing operations.
The 'big idea' was to provide clients with a one-stop-shop, a turnkey service where all of the regulatory approvals, design and construction were included for a fixed lump-sum price and a firm completion date, offering clients convenience, security and peace of mind.
The business model was successful and within a few years, DCE was attracting property developers who were also seeking the simplicity and certainty of the project delivery method offered by DCE.
Over time the business developed a strong reputation for quality and meeting deadlines, attracting the attention and interest of large specialist industrial developers such as Goodman, Dexus, ESR, Logos, Charter Hall, GPT and the Port of Brisbane. These developers had detailed and exacting briefs and high expectations of the design-and-construct contractors they engaged. Over the years DCE has forged strong relationships with many of these developers who, as the industry has evolved, represent an ever-increasing market share within the industrial sector.
Although we've grown significantly from those early days, we still maintain a strong link to founding principles and derive immense satisfaction from working with business owners; finding optimal solutions for their property needs and in so doing, creating enduring value for their businesses.
