Caledonia Group would like to wish all their clients a happy New Year and we hope your Christmas break was safe and restful. This year promises to be an exciting one for Caledonia and we are delighted that you are partnering with us as it unfolds.
What’s new in 2018? Caledonia Group is expanding its services portfolio! We are excited to announce that this year, we will add to our foundation portfolio of Scaffolding, Engineering & Design and Project Management. As an Industrial Services Provider we are now supplying Thermal, Cryogenic and Acoustic Insulation, a wide range of Mechanical Finishes & Cladding, Rope Access, Swing Stage and Hoist Hire.
Additionally, Caledonia is now able to better service the Pilbara region with the establishment of a new satellite office in Karratha, WA! The Western Australian Government is further developing regional areas of WA through the development of infrastructure to support service centres and cities. Government Planning documents such as the Pilbara Planning and Infrastructure Framework, recognise the importance of the resource sector in the Pilbara region and include this sector in its deliberations when planning. Caledonia has recognised an opportunity to deliver its services into the Pilbara, to compliment the development activities of the WA Government. Our new office, located at Anderson Road, Karratha, will provide a base for us to service our five year contract with Clough Amec at the Yara Fertiliser Plant. Importantly, this will also allow us to deliver an even higher level of service commitment to our valued industrial clients in the region, who access our wide range of industrial services.
Staying in WA – Caledonia Group pride ourselves on our quality of workmanship and professionalism throughout the Insulation and Cladding division. Recent works at both the Murrin Murrin (Northwest Goldfields area of WA) and Yara (Pilbara, WA) sites produced a high level of workmanship over all work fronts whilst meeting the required deadlines for both clients, Minara Resources and Clough Amec respectively. In the short three month period at Yara we have gained great confidence from the client, due to the highly motivated team of the nine highly proficient members of our core crew stationed there.
Progressing into 2018, Caledonia intends to drive forward with a positive mentality that will allow us to develop our business in the right direction. That can only mean good news for you, our clients; because it means outstanding service delivery, our total commitment to you and one hundred percent confidence in the Caledonia brand.
We are excited about 2018 and we look forward to welcoming new and existing clients to be excited about 2018 with us!
It’s all about North WA in 2018! And Caledonia Group has its finger right on the pulse! Due to our expansion activities into WA, we are offering employment opportunities for experienced people to assist with our Industrial Services provision in Karratha. We are looking for:

Traineeship Past and Present –
Caledonia Group is committed to the development of our people. We have developed a unique Scaffolding Traineeship that runs for 18-24 months. The Traineeship has a career pathway that could see the Trainee win a permanent position. The Traineeship consists of the Trainee working with us (on-the-job-training) and simultaneously undertaking complementary training through a combination of ‘Site Skills’ and ‘CITC’. At the end of the Trainee’s tenure, they gain a National Accreditation Certificate III in Scaffolding.
Good news stories can come from all aspects of the business. Recently, it came from Murrin Murrin, WA in the form of a former Caledonia Group Indigenous Trainee, Chappy Jones.
Because he had completed the Caledonia Scaffolding Traineeship and held the Certificate III in Scaffolding, Chappy was able to play an integral role in the dismantling of Scaffolding in the recent shutdown of the Murrin Murrin site.
The Caledonia Scaffolding Traineeship doesn’t just pay dividends for the Trainee, the client and Caledonia Group. It reaches back into the community because the successful Trainee feels accomplished, is qualified and is able to set a new standard for themselves and their community. And it’s not just Chappy. A number of our trainees that have graduated from the system are now actively working on a range of sites across South Australia, (including the BHP shutdown at Olympic Dam) and Western Australia. Well done to everyone involved in helping to create long term careers for these guys.
