From the moment two young entrepreneurial New Zealand engineers sat down in 1961 with a vision to do things better than the company they worked for, McConnell Dowell was born. Since then, innovation and creative construction have remained at the heart of everything we do.
For 60 years now, this progressive mindset has taken the Company on a journey of growth and innovation with no shortage of milestones along the way. Taking on ambitious projects in the sixties and seventies, and delivering them successfully quickly set the Company on a path to international expansion.
The eighties and nineties saw McConnell Dowell reinforce its position as a serious international contractor by delivering some of the most complex and demanding projects throughout Australia and Asia.
The 21st century has seen further growth across all our operating regions. An integral part of innovative approach, we have put our stamp on everything from city changing infrastructure projects to vital resource projects that provide both economic and environmental benefits to local communities - on a truly international scale.
Today, operating across Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Asia, and employing several thousand people, McConnell Dowell has a proud history, a proud culture and a positive outlook for an exciting future.
