C&C Civil & Mining Construction (formerly C&C Building Contractors), was established in Mackay in 1993 as a labour only formwork and concreting business providing concrete construction services for clients within the Central Queensland Region. In 2005 Mark Clifford (Founder & Director) expanded the services provided by C&C through the addition of a permanent Civil Engineer to estimate and manage larger scale construction projects (Mark Sanfilippo). From this point C&C grew into a principal contractor for clients undertaking turn key, lumpsum infrastructure projects across Mackay and the Bowen Basin.

Further company expansion followed in 2011 with diversification into robotic Shotcreting Services both in surface and underground applications managed by a new mining project manager Barry Sturgeon. Through this evolution C&C has developed a diversified, unique and successful business which provides Infrastructure and Underground Support Services across Mackay and the Bowen Basin.
