Future-proofing Goulburn Police Academy

Delivering on NSW Police’s modernisation plans

Earlier this month, Commissioner Webb and NSW Police Minister Yasmin Catley inaugurated the new accommodation facility at the almost 40-year-old NSW Goulburn Police Academy.

Completed by RCC in just 12 months the state-of-the-art precinct has been designed to future-proof NSW Police’s capacity to train the highest calibre of recruits. Staff and students will enjoy modern and connected accommodation facilities comprising 180 modern rooms featuring ensuites, as well as spacious common areas and kitchenettes.

Advanced site logistics, planning and stakeholder collaboration enabled our project team to deliver the facility within the live Academy grounds, all the while ensuring operational continuity.

Karen Webb, NSW Police Commissioner, reflected on the importance of the new accommodation precinct, “…providing police with modern and professional facilities ensures we continue to provide world-class training to meet the challenges of modern-day policing.”

We’re proud to have partnered with NSW Police, Spotless Downer and our ecosystem of consultants and contractors to bring to life their vision for a modern facility that responds to the evolving working and living conditions of Police staff and students.

Pacific Cape Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF) now complete

Infrastructure that enables older Australians to live well.

The $31 million RACF at Pacific Cape Lodge is now complete – delivered in partnership with Reecon. The modern five-storey building contains 88 residential rooms, with parking and services on the lower two levels.

With more than 100 aged care projects delivered across Australia since 1976, we understand the criticality of environmentally sensitive construction. Our team mitigated disruption and construction impacts for surrounding neighbours by drawing on Reecon’s first-hand site knowledge and local resources. Extensive pre-planning, including monitoring and management of noise works for adjacent living units, were also imperative to this project’s success.

We’re proud to help older Australians live well – delivering critical social infrastructure that meets their ever-evolving needs. Thank you to our delivery partners who made this possible.

Fresh Hope Communities’ new Residential Care Service in Maitland Reaches Completion

More than 100 aged care projects delivered across Australia.

Residents are moving into their new premises at Green Hills Residential Care Service by Fresh Hope Communities in Maitland – a contemporary, multi-level residential care facility that incorporates new models of care in non-institutional ‘care household’ environments.

In collaboration with Fresh Hope Communities and Calder Flower Architects, our team of delivery experts led the demolition of a pre-existing care facility and associated infrastructure. Following this, works commenced on the new 158-bed residential residential care service and respite centre, which accommodates 20 day visitors and 8 overnight beds.


With more than 100 aged care projects delivered across Australia since 1976, we understand the criticality of environmentally sensitive construction. Our team mitigated disruption and construction impacts for the surrounding community and Two Mile Creek ecosystem by implementing a bespoke Environmental Management Plan (EMP).

Green Hills Residential Care Service has been designed to foster connection with both the local community and native landscapes. Nestled amongst the ten residential wings are sensory sitting spaces, also known as ‘garden rooms,’ that invite generous views and connection to natural surrounds.

Residents, staff and visitors at Green Hills can access the following:

  • Wellness and health centre
  • Commercial café
  • Day centre
  • Recreational spaces including a kiosk shed, arboretum and pergola.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the delivery of this important social infrastructure.

International Women’s Day 2024

Driving the growth of a stronger business and industry.

Our culture, people and the journey we offer our partners make us unique. This International Women’s Day (IWD) we recognise the invaluable contribution women make to our business and industry. Their excellence drives our success and inspires the next generation of female industry leaders.  

2024’s theme is Inspire Inclusion. Rather than celebrating for a single day, we want to start important conversations which help us to tailor our approach to empowering, supporting and elevating women in the construction industry. Our people are the cornerstone of everything we do – for them, and future generations, we have begun implementing change in the right direction.  

The industry has come so far, but there is still a long way to go in creating an equitable, inclusive and innovative sector. We are committed to the long haul and know that a diverse and inclusive environment breeds innovation and drives the growth of a stronger business and industry.  

Together with our people, partners, industry, and community we want to build a shared legacy; a more equitable, inclusive industry for the next generation.
