Congratulations to John Melvin and the team.
North Construction is the largest locally owned and operated construction company on the Central Coast. Founded in 1987, we have become one of the most trusted builders throughout the Central Coast, Hunter Valley and Newcastle regions.
North received the prestigious national 2018 Medium Employer of the Year Award at the Australian Training Awards! They work hard to create relevant and rewarding opportunities for all their employees and to be recognised on such a grand level is very exciting!
North runs an apprentice program which is structured to teach carpentry and leadership skills from the apprentices’ first day on site. They employ a full-time apprentice manager to provide the right learning environment for each apprentice, with regular reviews to monitor progress and provide support. A large number of these apprentices now hold senior site positions, representing 116 years of collective knowledge and experience.
The company also runs a structured cadet program, targeting students who have completed their first year of studies. Similar to the intent of the apprentice program, the cadet program is a key driver in growing future contracts administrators, project managers and estimators.
