Woollam Constructions fosters a culture of loyalty, teamwork and career development for existing and new employees to the industry. Investing in our people, and offering genuine career paths is led by example; the Directors and much of the management team started their careers with Woollam as building cadets.
Craig Percival – Managing Director
Craig’s experience in the construction industry is, literally, from the ground up. His hands-on approach began as building cadet with Woollam in 1989, labouring and assisting tradespeople. He earned increased responsibility as a leading hand, then as site manager. Mentored by both Tom and Keith Woollam, Craig learnt from two of the industry’s most respected figures, absorbing the Woollam ethos for quality, service, and reliability.
After running the Mackay branch since 1995, Craig was promoted to company director in 2001, and in March 2015 became Woollam Constructions Managing Director.
As Managing Director, Craig takes great pride in the development of our people and our uncompromising approach to quality. Leading by example he instills the same approach throughout the project team and ensures they have whatever resources they need to exceed our client’s expectations. His technical experience onsite means he is acutely aware of critical management tasks to ensure quality delivery. Craig has been involved with all major Woollam Constructions projects throughout regional Queensland since 1995. He is highly experienced in dealing with remote locality and consistently testing building processes to ensure most efficient and economical outcomes are achieved.
