Gatton Earthmovers provides earthmoving and civil works services in the Lockyer Valley and anywhere within southern Queensland and northern New South Wales.


Lockyer Designs were the project managers for the “Blue Grass Estate” development, a new rural residential subdivision, at Adare. Gatton Earthmovers were the principal contractors on the project and completed works involving earthworks, civil works, installation of water reticulation and coordination of electrical and communications installation in a safe and timely manner.

Gatton Earthmovers' employees were competent in all aspects of the works undertaken. Personnel on site provided helpful assistance during the works. They were friendly, easy to work with and communicated well to solve any issues that may have risen on the project.

Gatton Earthmovers are a company that offers good value for money with works undertaken in a competent, safe and efficient manner.
