Backing Queensland:
The rise of Rork Projects in the Sunshine State

With challenge comes opportunities.

That’s the motto for Rork Projects as the company navigates the unexpected trials of 2020. Rather than resting on its laurels Rork Projects has forged ahead, striking new partnerships, new projects and new opportunities. Rork Projects Queensland General Manager Matt Clayton said his team has rallied to take a positive approach.

“We believe in the Queensland economy and in our capacity and skillset. We came together and made a conscious decision not to take a backwards step,” he said. “The result has been strong growth across sectors, with client confidence and approval following.”

As one of the industries less impacted by Covid-19, Matt Clayton said his team feel a sense of responsibility to work hard and contribute to the Queensland economy and to the community.

“This is a challenging time for so many businesses, and we feel grateful and a certain responsibility because we have been able to continue operating in Queensland," he said. "I’m extremely proud to be working for a company that continues to give back, invest and support our community, clients and staff given the current climate.”

New initiative: Rork Minor Works

To meet a surge in demand for specialist construction projects, Rork Projects Queensland has launched a new division to deliver refurbishments, fit outs and minor construction works to an ever-changing workplace. Rork Minor Works sits alongside Rork Projects’ major project team and focuses on delivering a range of needs, from office upgrades to significant maintenance works.

This diversification of delivery means that clients can get the experience and security that comes from working with a major construction company, without losing the attention to detail and service that these specialist projects need.
