“Connekt Plumbing have been engaged on several specialised projects of mine, including a day surgery and a R&D/ manufacturing complex. The latter was design and construct, where there understanding of the principal performance requirements, relevant standards, and value management through design development proved invaluable in securing the project. The management staff are professional, accessible, and have great problem solving abilities. The site team are very experienced, and have the ability to drive program whilst maintaining quality control. I could not recommend Connekt Plumbing highly enough, no matter the size or nature of the project.”
“Hydraulic works can be a complex and time consuming component of any construction project. Since working with Connekt Plumbing we have seen this process simplified on several projects. Connekts experience and input during the design/construction process has enabled resolution of complex details and has relaxed project co-ordination. Most notably, they have shown enthusiasm toward their work and set the benchmark for other services trades on site. Highly recommended!”
“I reached out to Connekt Plumbing for our biggest construction project to date. Their reputation spoke volumes and they didn’t disappoint. They were the new kids on the block with a fresh and knowledgeable attitude I was looking for. The tender process, their on-site professional mannerism via their dedicated site manager or their RFI’s and or ITP’s were absolutely what we were looking for, and has won them our next tender as well. Connekt Plumbing are a valuable part of our program and I look forward too many more projects together.”
“Connekt Plumbing are a company that I would most definitely like to work with again. My experience with working with Connekt is limited to only one project so far, however, during this time they showed great professionalism in everything they did, from administration and paper work to performance and attitude of the workers on site. The communication lines are always open and honest and I commend them for that. If there are any issues on site or with the documentation they are always there to help and provide a solution to the issues. It is also pleasing to see that the staff on site have enthusiasm about their jobs which speaks volumes about how they are managed and treated.”

Our approach to project management sets us apart from our competition. We adopt systematic techniques that not only address project profitability, but also appreciate a project’s unique scope, time and compliance requirements. Our collaborative approach towards the management of our projects filters from management through to site, ensuring all staff understand each unique facet of the project.
At Connekt, we appreciate that not all projects are straight forward, however, “where there is a problem, there is a solution”, a simple statement but one we always revert back to, even in the most testing of circumstances. We’re here to work with our clients and suppliers, not against. We pride ourselves on a collaborative approach, which includes seeking out effective and compliant outcomes, and ultimately delivering success.

Demanding, reactive and fast moving. Commercial refurbishment & fitouts are not for the faint hearted. Our small contracts team are setup to cater for these “ in an out” applications, while still maintaining our high regard for safety and quality.
Connekt Design & Planning
“Planning for any project or installation must be upfront and accurate. You get that right, you give your team the best opportunity to deliver success.”
Matt Patton, Project Manager at Connekt Plumbing Pty Ltd
Modern day projects are quite often unique in design, raising logistical challenges that require significant forward thinking, coordination and planning to effectively address compliance and execute installation onsite. Our design team is capable of assisting from the very early initiation stages of a project or installation, right through to post tender value management, construction coordination and post installation documentation.
An appreciation for technology in construction design is essential for any modern-day construction business. We’re up to date and experienced in standard AutoCAD, Bluebeam Revu, Autodesk Revit 3D modelling, together with clash detection tools and much more. Time aside frequently researching areas of technology in construction design sets us apart from our competition and provides value to our clients and their projects.
PLANNING AND APPROVALS
Coordination of design and approvals with different authorities can be a strenuous and lengthy task, often delaying different stages of a project if underestimated and requirements have not been adequately addressed. We understand this process and adopt a systematic approach to address all related approvals and local authority related compliance. Whether involvement in the early project design phase or taking over from a design team prior to construction, we’ll ensure that all trade related matters have been addressed and approvals are in place, prior to commencement of works onsite.
“Work, Health & Safety is the responsibility of everyone, and all of the staff at Connekt Plumbing appreciate that.”
SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL
The nature of the construction industry and its risks to the health and welfare of our workforces and the greater public can be extreme, having catastrophic consequences. We appreciate this, adopting safety and environmental systems that are effective, comply with legislative requirements and are tailored to each unique site. Frequent collaboration with our site workforce ensures our systems remain consistent with our operations, creating awareness and reducing the likelihood of incidents and hazardous situations from occurring.
We collectively create project specific systems that suit our own activities and requirements; however, we also understand that head contractors and client organisations have their own responsibilities as a PCBU under the Work Health and Safety Act, and they too have auditing processes that need to be understood and addressed. We have put our systems to the test with numerous reputable commercial builders and organisations, receiving great feedback from safety officers and safety representatives a like.
Successful and effective quality management starts with top management and articulates through to site, addressing all unique facets of a project or installation.
Practice through experience is critical to producing effective and usable quality management systems. Our quality systems have evolved from years of hydraulic contracting experience through all levels of both site and office-based management, providing assurance that all risk related items have been considered and addressed. Our QA team creates project specific manuals that address project performance, local authority and code requirements, as well as integration of manufacturer installation and warranty upkeep obligations.
Materials selection is of upmost importance nowadays, with innovation and the constant influx of new materials hitting the market. We pride ourselves on our material selection processes, which consider both capital savings for aproject and product longevity for the end user. We would never compromise our systems by installing inferior products that are either non-compliant or not fit for purpose, a strong statement we stand by and a core value of our business.
