About Us

Ausdecom is one of Australia’s leading providers of Decommissioning, Demolition, Environmental Remediation, Waste Management and Recycling Services.  With our head office based in Victoria we self-deliver large scale projects throughout Australia.

Established in 2013 by Sam McKellar and his father Jamie, The McKellar Family has a long history in the Demolition and Recycling Industry, spanning four generations. Ausdecom remain true to these origins and core values by putting safety first, focus on our people and strive for sustainable and efficient outcomes. We have a strong reputation for being innovators, delivering projects safely, on time and in a cost-effective manner.

Environmentally sustainable business practices are part of Ausdecom’s DNA, with Jamie McKellar being an industry pioneer, opening the first concrete recycling plant in Australia, turning construction and demolition waste into aggregates and road base materials. This practice continues in Ausdecom today, our business is and has always been based on the principle of re-using, re-directing, or recycling as much of the materials we extract from our projects as possible. We have also opened our gates to other businesses to bring their construction and demolition waste to us, diverting it from landfill.

People are at the heart of what we do and Ausdecom is a diverse and inclusive workplace that celebrates diversity and culture in all its forms. We focus on attracting local high-quality employees, providing training and continuous development to keep our people at the forefront of our industry.   With over 100 full time employees having gender equality within Ausdecom is important to us, especially as this is traditionally a male dominated industry.  We continue to strive to close this gap for the benefit of the company and the wider community and our current Senior Management team is made up of 30% females.

Ausdecom’s specialist teams have completed many projects within live plants and major hazard facilities for some of Australia’s biggest Blue-Chip companies in the Petrochemical, Refining, Smelting and heavy industrial manufacturing sectors.

With continual investment in state-of-the-art company owned fleet of specialised plant and equipment, supported by a reliable transport fleet and in house servicing and fabrication workshop we can offer our clients a complete turnkey solution from project inception to completion.

Safety, the key to success

We enforce the highest on-site occupational health, safety and environmental standards at all levels.

Ausdecom is genuinely committed to providing a safe, risk free environment for all. The benefits of a safe working environment are mutual to Ausdecom, our employees and our clients with an increase in job satisfaction, higher morale and increased productivity.

Our enduring safety record is maintained by a disciplined and systematic approach to the fundamentals of safety, which is underpinned by a cultural belief that all accidents are preventable.

Ausdecom’s safety system incorporates mandatory pre-planning and task orientated safety analysis, as every project presents a different set of circumstances, issues and concerns. Customised Work Plans and Procedures are developed to take into account local factors that will influence, or have a potential to, affect an activity. We conduct a Safety Analysis for all high risk tasks which is supported by detailed standard operating procedures.

Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) and daily pre-start meetings, form the vital link in the consultation process and ensure any changes to work conditions are identified, reviewed and amended as required.
