WHO WE ARE
The Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) is Australia’s peak civil construction industry body. As the voice of the civil construction industry we advocate for the development of our industry.
With branches in all states and territories, as well as a National Office in Canberra, CCF understands the local, state and national issues facing the civil construction industry.
THE WA BRANCH
In 1975 a group of civil contractors in Western Australia formed the Land Development Contractors Association (LDCA). In the late 1980s the LDCA joined the national contractor association then known as the Australian Earthmovers and Road Contractors Federation (AERCF), which eventually became the Civil Contractors Federation in 1995. The CCF was established as a union of employers registered under the Federal Workplace Relations laws focused on providing balance to the industrial relations debates that have been commonplace at different times in Australia’s history. Under the leadership of several very committed Branch Presidents, Executive Directors and CEOs the Western Australia Branch has broadened its focus over the years to encompass all of the activities generally associated with an industry peak body.
The input and involvement of all members has and will continue to be critical to the ongoing growth and evolution of the CCF in WA. We are acutely aware and grateful of the dedication of so many of our members who so willingly commit their time to the Federation. It is an enduring strength of the CCF.
