Reference from Mansfield Shire Council
Rod Campbell from Focus Engineering & Construction P/L asked if we would be prepared to provide a reference as to their involvement and performance as one of the major contractors on our recently completed Goulburn River High Country Rail Trail. On behalf of Council I have no hesitation in doing so.
By way of background, Focus was largely responsible for the replacement or refurbishment of the now completed forty nine bridges on the project. It was a multi-million dollar undertaking with Focus manufacturing steel and concrete components, input to design and documentation and on-site construction of the actual bridges.
Focus met all their contractual requirements with Council and was always very willing to discuss and instigate agreed changes. Contract Variations were to a minimum and amicably agreed upon.
Their interaction with the Works Superintendent, other members of the project team, other contractors, various government agencies and adjoining landowners was exemplary.
We wish Focus Engineering & Constructions all the best with other projects in our region.

Reference from Fitzgerald Constructions Australia Pty Ltd
Fitzgerald Constructions has been working with Focus Engineering for well over 10 years, and I personally, have been working with them for over 5. In this time, Focus have demonstrated that they are a capable and thoughtful fabricator and contractor and complete their work to a high quality and in a timely fashion.
The larger projects that Focus have been involved with Fitzgerald’s during this period are:
Melbourne Convention Centre Bridge
Focus fabricated all steel work and also produced the precast elements for the Job. This bridge was a design and construct project that meant construction was occurring concurrently with design. Focus assisted this process by being mindful of the process and looking for issues and suggesting solutions where appropriate.
Nicholson St Rail Bridge
Fabrication of all steelwork, and casting of concrete deck and precast approach slabs. All work carried out on time under a tight time line.
Northbank Promenade – Yarra River
Fabrication of architectural/structural steel elements.
Corio Interchange Bridge
Fabrication of temporary falsework.
Based on the foregoing, I have no hesitation in recommending Focus Engineering for relevant Corowa Shire Council works.
If further reference material is required, I would be pleased to do so.
