Our History

Your Company in Construction Since 2001

Heritage Close

In the past 10 years we have constructed and handed over in excess of 1000 dwellings.

In 2007, Big Ben diversified

In 2007, Big Ben diversified its construction activities to include both Commercial and Sectional title developments. Additional mechanized equipment including teleporters, a hoist and conveyors have been acquired and successful commercial and sectional title developments have been completed both on time and within budget.

Specialist staff in these fields have been procured and our abilities and track record continue to expand exponentially.

The humble beginnings

Big Ben Construction was formerly Century City Construction, which was responsible for the initial residential developments in the Century City precinct. Century City Construction provided a whole ambit of services from Town Planning, to Civil infrastructure, to marketing, construction and final handover to clients of a variety of residential developments at Century City.

In recent years, Big Ben has become more focused, concentrating primarily on pure construction. The skills base and knowledge of all phases of development, particularly residential, however, remain in the company and we are able to share these skills and knowledge with our development clients in the planning of their developments.

Personal and consistent service has always been the business of our company.
