It’s been a stellar year for the NSW team at CBM Services Group with the company posting incredible growth over their first twelve months. Really, that is a bit of an under-statement. Returning 150 percent above their expected budget as a start-up arm of the business should be enough to satisfy the company reports, yet this achievement has been just one marker of their 2019-20 success.
Company Managing Directors, Scott Bretherton and Scott Watson have enjoyed watching their commitment and investment reap the benefits of strategic alignment with key health, university and commercial high-rise projects.
“The main achievements for us in the last year have been mainly due to CBM Services Group focusing on the right kind of project partners. Industry leaders have watched us deliver and then other contracts have flowed from our reputation,” says Scott Bretherton.
Scott listed the following CBM Service Group projects as highlights over the company’s first year in NSW:
- Preferred contractor status for Memocorp
- St Vincent’s Private Hospital Imaging Centre Relocation Mechanical Works – Mettle Projects
- St George Specialist Centre New Imaging Centre Mechanical Works – Formula Interiors
- UTS Dilution Laboratory Fit Out – Farindon
- UNSW Laboratory Fit Out – Patterson Building Group
- Griffith Hospital Refurbishment and New Ambulatory Care Building Mechanical Works – Project Coordination
- Disability Royal Commission Fit Out (259 George Street, Sydney) – Podcon
- Bushfire Royal Commission Fit Out (Canberra)
- WineArk Storage Chiller Replacement
“Some of this work has helped CBM Services Group identify precisely who we are and where we want to go to build the business over the next years,” he said.
Scott Watson adds that the company has prioritised growing local teams who understand client expectations.
“We recruit, train and advance local, top quality engineers, technicians and critical support staff who know their stuff and strive to deliver because they feel like part of the CBM story,” says Scott.
“We all feel motivated because CBM Services Group has the expertise to go for the quality projects and our ambitions are supported by top service to our clients – these two elements will help us to grow again next year and the one after that,” he said.
A key priority for 2020-21 is to expand the local apprenticeship and trainee program, offering more opportunities for professional development and fresh talent within the team.
NSW Projects Manager, Peter McManus added,
“We’ve built a lot of strength and skill within the NSW team so we have a lot to offer in terms of mentoring and developing new talent.
“The trainee and apprenticeship program we’re aiming for will give the Group further edge and advantage to take on more diverse projects and continue the growth we’ve experienced this year,” he said.
Both Scotts paid credit to the team that have secured their growth over the year.
“We can’t wait to see what this high performing NSW team can achieve over the next twelve months.”
“Our company works so well because of our staff – in NSW and our base in Queensland. Thanks for helping us on this journey.”
