Industry Specialists

CDL Constructions has a workforce of 60+ employees. CDL owns and operates all our own construction machinery, including hydraulic excavators from 5 to 50 tonne, piling rigs, heavy vehicles and machinery. The CDL brand has become a reputable and recognised player in the commercial and civil construction industry priding itself on providing a ‘one stop’ solution to your project needs and requirements.


CDL has extensive knowledge and more than 40 years’ experience in deep building & civil project excavation using varied retention systems. The projects have included building basement excavations and major civil engineering projects such as freeways, cut and cover tunnels, bridge abutments and deep excavations. We use this wealth of experience to assist in selection and promotion of the appropriate retention system according to site conditions, project budget, programme and other factors.

We also offer design and construct packages, using our in-house knowledge and experience in alliance with key external designers, to provide the optimum solution for the project.

Methods and techniques have included:

  • Bored pile / soldier pile retention systems
  • Temporary ground anchor systems
  • Permanent ground anchor systems
  • Internal propping and underpinning
  • Soil nail walls
  • Diaphragm walls
  • Reinforced earth walls

Major Earthworks & Excavation

CDL's fleet of equipment and expertise in earthmoving has been successfully utilised in many significant bulk excavation projects, often in conjunction with other areas of expertise such as site remediation, retention systems and in-ground foundation construction.


CDL has completed both minor and major demolition contracts, as stand-alone demolitions and associated with excavation and civil works. These include large shopping centre redevelopments and medium/large building projects. We pride ourselves on completing the full package and providing a turn-key solution to accommodate our clients.

Design and Construct

The CDL team keeps its finger on the pulse with the latest and most effective design methods. Our team can either provide a package on a design and construct basis, or provide the experience and knowledge to guide the projects to the most effective outcome.

Bored Piles

CDL has a fleet of modern and well maintained piling machines capable of drilling in a variety of conditions for soldier piles (retention piles) and foundation piles (bored piers).

Site remediation

CDL has carried out significant decontamination and site remediation works on "brown field" developments as many sites in the urban area are redeveloped.

Methods employed have included:

  • Classification and disposal to appropriate sites including landfills
  • Separation and relocation / stabilisation of problematic soils within the site
  • Treatment of soils to allow re-use or reclassification.

With the increasing proportion of development affected by contamination issues, CDL is often able to provide the most effective means of dealing with costs and time implications.

Methods have also been developed, to enable treatment and stabilisation of problematic soils such as acid sulphate soils & asbestos contaminated soils and to encapsulate soils within the site.

Civil Construction

CDL has serviced the civil construction sector since 1980, delivering quite large and complex projects and works. These have included key areas such as major earthworks, site remediation and decontamination, demolition, major in-ground service installation and relocation, stormwater drainage, pavements, car parks and roads, basement retention works, foundation and footing systems (including deep piling works) and above ground structures.

Footing and foundation works

The CDL team regularly carry out foundation packages associated with our other works.

The in-ground foundations works we specialise in are foundation piles, pile caps, raft, pad and strip footings and the like.

Project Management

With a skilled, experienced & driven project team, CDL have successfully managed large projects that combine many facets of civil construction on office, retail, industrial, apartment and infrastructure developments.


CDL has carried out significant works involving infrastructure for commercial building developments, retail and industrial developments and residential subdivisions.
