Our People

The Spence construction team includes project managers, estimators, contract administrators, site foreman, carpenters, joiners and apprentices.

Supporting the construction team is a highly professional finance, administration and IT function.

Our team is professional, driven, consistent and considerate.

Our team culture places an emphasis on work life balance with a commitment to a healthy family-orientated workforce.

Our people define who we are – the awards we win; the clients whose dreams we make into reality – our people make this happen.

It is their passion for building, their commitment to achieving excellence, their relationships with each other and with the clients, architects and subcontractors that drives our success.

It’s all about trust; the sort of simple trust that comes from years of working together.  We simply create an environment where our people are free to express themselves, and allow them to do what they are good at – complete project after project to exacting standards, on time, and on budget – always.”
