Since the Company's conception, Michilis have specialised in heavy industrial concrete works, and have also developed and continued to refine their skills in the construction of electrical substations, coastal redevelopment projects and public infrastructure.
In 1964, Jim & Tom (Snr) formed Michilis Bros & headed down to Batlow to commence work on a Fruit Processing Plant - during their time at the helm of Michilis they built cotton storage sheds, worked on Kooragang Island building parts of Orica, carried out Civil & Infrastructure work for Koppers, stage 1 & 2 at Charlestown Square, concrete works at Kmart Waratah, Garden City, Coles Belmont, and Pasminco Smelter to name a few.
In 1999, Jim & Tom (Snr) handed over the responsibility to their sons Mark & Tom (Jnr) respectively. Mark & Tom's introduction came in the form of a large job at Kooragang Island constructing Stage II of a new coal loader working for Bechtel. Michilis built their first substation in 2004 for Energy Australia at Croudace Bay. In 2005, Michilis secured the contract for Civil Construction works at Newlands Coal Mine in far North-West Queensland.
Moving into Coastal re-development in 2011 their first project was Bar Beach Cliff Stabilisation - this project saw Michilis the winner of Master Builders Association 2012 Excellence In Building Awards for Landscape, Rehabilitation & Civil Works.
Completed in 2012, Bar Beach Cliff Stabilisation was a job that had us thinking outside the square.
The projects intent was to stabilise the weathering cliff face with an aesthetic architectural appeal.
Activities include, Cliff scaling by long reach machinery and cliff scaler labor supported from abseiling equipment.
Gabion rock walls created a free draining revetment wall whilst the decorative pavement protects scouring from overland run off. The Project also features an amazing viewing deck, built out of Australian hardwoods, Gosford quarry sandstone and stainless steel ballustrade.Learn More
