A1 Group - Laying Down the Future.
In 2001 Leigh Rees started a small business called A1 Asphalting P/L employing 6 people. In 2006 due to industry demand in our area, Leigh erected his own Asphalt plant in Drouin and within 12 months the business grew to employing 44 people.
From 2008 Leigh created the A1 Group and diversified into all forms of civil construction. With an Asphalt Plant in Morwell and another coming soon to Wonthaggi, we also have A1 Sand Supplies operating out our quarry in Rosedale. A1 Gippsland Septic Tanks and Concrete Products has branches in Drouin and Bairnsdale.
Today we are proud to be a part of his vision and drive that allow the A1 Group of Companies to offer quality services to the civil construction industry.
A1 Civil obtained its Certification for Prequalification R1 rating for Vic Roads in 2016 for Civil (Road & Bridge) Construction Contracts.
A1 CIVIL PTY LTD
With a combined 57 years’ experience in the Civil Construction Industry, Leigh Rees, together with Kim McGill commenced the operation of A1 Civil in October 2012. In the first 12 months of operation, A1 Civil had successfully tendered and completed a number of contracts both locally and in the metropolitan area.
Specialising in road and car park pavement works, the company already has a history of civil and associated works for Vic Roads, Municipal Councils such as Frankston City Council, Casey City Council and Baw Baw Shire Council, V-Line and major private sector building companies.
In 2014 A1 Civil was accredited with the Civil Contractors Federation under their Civil Construction Management Code, which is based on the more pertinent elements of Quality Assurance (ISO 9001-2008), Occupational Health and Safety (AS 4801-2001) and Environmental Management (ISO 14001-2004). These processes are used to ensure the appropriate planning of all operations. This is demonstrated in the creation of a Project Management Plan which is developed for each individual project.
