new build

The majority of our construction activities are characterised by complex requirements which we have managed pre and post commencement on site.


SJ Higgins Group approach to building construction and the implementation of our services has the singular focus of the successful realisation of our client's goals. Our project methodology is based on a rigorous contextual examination facilitating the establishment of clearly defined project parameters and their management. We ensure that the needs of our clients are fully understood prior to entering into contracts or commitments to proceed; and we will verify our capacity to meet those needs, obtain necessary resources and supervise and manage our work in such a way that all client expectations and contract specifications are met.


SJ Higgins Group is committed to continual improvement in our project delivery and customer satisfaction. Our systems for quality, OHS & environmental management together with our forward thinking approach will ensure we grow with best practice operations.

MiningSince our diversification into the Mining Sector, our Mining Resources Division has built strong relationships with some of Australia’s largest resources companies and mining sector clients. We draw on our proud heritage of excellence over 30 years and our peoples’ knowledge of mining practices to facilitate provision of quality solutions to the mining sector.


We have assembled a highly specialised project team with an outstanding track record in delivery, quality and OH&S performance to ensure continued growth and consistent quality delivery. With our knowledge base, we are well positioned to meet the individual complexities of projects specific to the mining sector. Our collaborative approach, capability and track record of delivering quality outcomes enables us to apply our flexible management systems to mining resources projects and offer cost-effective solutions to our clients.


The capability to deliver projects in live environments that require full operational capacity extends to the delivery of projects in the mining sector. We have developed an innovative and flexible approach to construction within this sector that results in a quality outcome and increased value-adding.


Our team has been engaged on a Design and Construct Contract basis as a Coal Mine Operator by the Department of Mines and Energy to operate under the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act. SJ Higgins Group can manage any Mining Lease segregated for construction as Coal Mine Operation with a fully developed Health and Safety Management System as required by the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act.

FitoutOver the years we have developed and materialised a strong reputation in fit out works with a particular emphasis on working in live environments. The experience, commitment and technical ability necessary to successfully deliver projects extends expertise in fit out of new spaces, existing spaces and live environments.


With a large client base representing numerous market sectors including health, retail and commercial, our team has extensive experience in every aspect of fit out. Our experience means that we can clearly understand the paremeters for scope, goals and risk within the fitout environment with majoriy of projects undertaken in a live environment subject to a very tight programme.


Our focus is on setting the standard for quality services and construction. Central to this is our commitment to client's vision and design intent which ensures that we deliver quality outcomes. To us, a successful fitout delivery does not only include a quality outcome within budget and time restraints, but a smooth process without disruption to operational capacity, the client and consistent focus on the client's vision. That is why our clients trust us to successfully deliver their projects on time and on budget.
