About us

What we do

The Civil Contractors Federation Tasmania is the leading voice of the civil infrastructure construction and maintenance industry in Tasmania. We represent and promote the interests of our members interests with state government, local government, and government business enterprises to ensure our members views are expressed.

Civil Construction is a critical industry to Tasmania’s prosperity and productivity. We build and maintain the infrastructure critical to support our economy – tourism, freight and passenger movement, the export industry, agriculture, and our essential services such as water, power, and waste management.

Professional

Our organisation is led by our Board, made up of elected representatives for the membership base, and some of the most experienced individuals in the State. These board members work tirelessly to engage with government, clients, and other stakeholders to drive the best results for members. They are supported by the CEO, Rachael Matheson, who has made significant improvements in members services and delivery over the past years.

Focused

The organisation is focused on delivering value for members. Our sub committees are working on key areas of interest for our members to provide benefits for the whole of industry. Members will receive information from these subcommittees as they work through current issues and their resolutions for our members.

Serious

We are serious about delivering for our members. We lobby on their behalf, do budget submissions and press releases to ensure we advocate for our members at the highest levels. We meet regularly with the Department of State Growth over technical issues and are serious about ensuring the long-term viability of our members and our industry in Tasmania.

CCF Tasmania prides itself on the close working relationships with relevant Ministers and Shadow Ministers and their Advisors. We work together to ensure that the industry has a voice at the decision-making tables. CCF Tasmania also applies for grants to undertake work that benefits our industry and members. Recent grants have assisted us to build our Jobs Hub on this web site. CCF Tasmania lobbies the Tasmanian government on issues that are important to our members and our industry. You’ll find some of these items on the Advocacy Page (link to this page).

Working with Industry organisations

CCF Tasmania works collaboratively with other industry organisations to leverage synergies and benefit our members. CCF Tasmania has a close partnership with the Traffic Management Association of Australia (TMAA) and this has been integral to the Your Speed is Our Safety Campaign, and the implementation of the Austroads Guide to Temporary Traffic Management. CCF Tasmania also works closely with the Tasmanian Transport Association (TTA) on road safety and other issues. There are many synergies that we will be looking to leverage in coming years with Industry Associations as we further our Workforce Development Plan Action items.
