Reconciliation Week 2023

Recognising the project team for the iconic City Tattersalls Club redevelopment

At RCC, we are proud to support and celebrate Reconciliation Week by acknowledging the traditional custodians of the lands on which we operate our business.

As a private, family-owned construction company that began on the lands of the Eora nation in 1976, we’re committed to promoting diverse and inclusive practices that support and empower Indigenous communities across Australia.

Recently, the project team for the iconic City Tattersalls Club redevelopment partnered with Aboriginal Artist, Kulka Fahey, a proud Biripi/Worimi Woman, to create three Indigenous artworks that brings together our history, people, clients and communities.

The three stunning artworks titled ‘Yannau Boomi – Walk Yesterday’, ‘Yannau Bungai – Walk Today’, and ‘Yannau Koobauki – Walk Tomorrow’, symbolises the history and progression of the City Tattersalls Club, and RCC’s vision for this redevelopment project to create a long-lasting legacy for our community.


Yannau Boomi – Walk Yesterday

This artwork represents the history of the City Tattersalls Club, with the depiction of the men sitting, symbolising the 20 members that started the City Tattersalls Club in 1895. Each meeting place represents 10 years of operation of the business.

The community and landscape is portrayed through the use of footprints, representing the pedestrian foot traffic. This acknowledges how well-known Pitt Street is as a major central business district in NSW.



Yannau Bungai – Walk Today

This artwork depicts the history of the City Tattersalls Club, with the representation of men, and now women, sitting around the centre. This highlights the progression of the Club.

The joinery around the centre meeting place represents the future evolution of the city and the City Tattersalls Club in the years to come. Not having an ending to this joinery creates the idea of continuation and growth.



Yannau Koobauki – Walk Tomorrow

The split down the middle of this artwork represents the City Tattersalls Club and RCC coming together with a vision for this project to create a long-lasting legacy for our community.

The meeting places (circles) either side of the artwork represent each companies’ values. Footprints are surrounding the centre to show the people within the businesses and the positive relationships they form.





Thank you to Kulka Fahey for creating these memorable pieces that connects RCC with the history of the City Tattersalls Club and the communities we serve.

RCC Family Day 2023

Bringing our families together for the annual RCC Family Day.

Every year, we celebrate the wider RCC family by spending a fun filled afternoon with our colleagues and their loved ones. This year, RCC families took over Holey Moley and Hijinx Hotel in Sydney and Dullboy’s Social Co in Newcastle.

The day is part of our Staff Appreciation Program; an annual program of events and initiatives focused on giving back to our employees and ensuring everyone enjoys the journey at RCC.
We can’t wait for the next one!

$65,800 Raised to Provide Health and Developmental Care for Country Kids

RCC cyclists conquered over 400km in support of developmentally vulnerable children living in regional, rural, and remote communities.

A big congratulations to RCC’s incredible cyclists, who took on the Ride for Country Kids earlier this year – raising over $65,800 in support of Royal Far West, Australia’s only national charity dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of country children. 

Team RCC showed up with passion and perseverance, coming together to tackle the gruelling 400km+ course from Cooma to Lake Hume Village over 3 days. From Mark Bowd’s parents welcoming the team into Tumbarumba, Jonty Young being nicknamed “Quadzilla” and the team jumping into Lake Hume on the final day, it truly was the ride of a lifetime.  

Country communities have had a tough couple of years – the impact of natural disasters coupled with the existing disadvantage of distance and availability of services has seen the number of country kids in need of developmental and mental health services drastically increase. For this reason, fundraising efforts are crucial to connect children in rural and remote communities to the critical assessments, services and support they need to thrive. 

David Sharp, Chief Financial Officer, spoke with the Royal Far West team on the importance of the fundraising initiative:

At RCC, we are committed to giving back to the regional communities in which we work. Our dedicated project teams have recently delivered a number of health precincts in the ACT region, including Cooma Hospital, MPS Braidwood, YASS and Harden, Tumut Hospital and MPS Tumbarumba Hospital. These state-of-the-art facilities ensure regional communities have greater access to essential healthcare services.  

Well done to our riders and event facilitators:

Coles Group Celebrate Opening of First Automated Distribution Centre

Congratulations to our client and Crookes’ Queensland team on this incredible project milestone.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk joined Coles Group Chairman James Graham and CEO Steven Cain for the official opening their first Automated Distribution Centres (ADC) in Redbank, Queensland. This development represents significant investment in the latest retail and supply chain technology available globally.

This milestone also marks the completion of our Queensland team’s inaugural project – a monumental moment we are delighted to celebrate.

At 66,000m2, the distribution centre is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and will service 219 supermarkets across Coles and Northern New South Wales.

Sustainability was top-of-mind when designing the Redbank facility, with the project team leveraging low energy LED lighting, solar power generation and a 180,000-litre rainwater storage capacity to reduce onsite water usage.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk joined Coles Group Chairman James Graham and CEO Steven Cain to officially open the site. Coles CEO Steven Cain said today is one of the most significant moments since Coles was founded in 1914 and five years in the making.

“This technology is not only a first for Australia, but also a win for the state of Queensland. As we’ve seen during the pandemic and natural disasters, resilient supply chains are essential when it comes to feeding our nation and providing Australians with essential supplies,” Prime Minster Albanese said.

Well done to everyone involved in this sector-leading project.
