Altona Plumbing and Civil, a family-owned business operating since 1976, is proudly one of Western Australia’s leading hydraulic contractors, providing the solution for all plumbing and civil contracting requirements.
Altona provides three main services – Commercial Plumbing, Civil Contracting and Maintenance Services. While each division of Altona enjoys its own autonomy, our ability to combine our resources and experience creates a competitive, robust business that sets us apart from our competitors.
Our board members collectively have held numerous positions on industry and regulatory bodies over many years, enabling us to stay abreast of changes and contribute to the future direction of the plumbing industry.
Altona is committed to continuously improving our standard of service, maintaining strong client relationships, applying innovative solutions to projects and providing a safe place of work.
We pride ourselves in being able to successfully deliver complicated projects comprising in-ground civil works including deep sewer and stormwater systems; new commercial plumbing including shopping centres and multi storey developments; and refurbishment works within fully operating hospitals and hotels.
We have an extensive range of Altona-owned plant and equipment including, but not limited to, excavators, skid steers, water trucks, low loader, wheel loaders, shoring and dewatering equipment.
Altona is dedicated to the future of the plumbing industry and is motivated to ensure that all its staff are given the opportunity to continually develop their skills. We provide an enjoyable place to work for all employees and believe that ongoing training is integral to our success and to the overall progression of the industry. We reward employees for exceptional standards in both day to day duties and safety. Each month we recognise this through the ‘Employee of the Month’ Award and the ‘B-Safe’ Award.
Altona Plumbing and Civil is currently host employer to several MPA Skills apprentices. As part of this role we assist MPA Skills with on-the-job assessments and provide regular feedback regarding the apprentices. We endeavour to add value to the industry by developing tradespersons who can turn their hands to all areas of the industry as opposed to being restricted to one particular sector. In addition to this, Altona’s field representatives are provided with on-the-job training as well as structured training and accreditation in the following areas:
