The Shutdown Specialist

For 35 years, Chelgrave has positioned itself as the Shutdown Specialist, providing services to some clients for more than 28 years. Chelgrave prides itself on delivering an unrivaled service for any Shutdown—no matter how big or small, Chelgrave can handle it all.
For all shutdowns, Chelgrave provides not only experienced tradespeople to complete the work, but also planners and supervisors to ensure that all projects are completed on time, on budget, and with minimum fuss. It is this know-how that comes from decades of experience that makes Chelgrave the correct choice for all Shutdown solutions.
• Shutdown Management

Maintenance Services

Chelgrave Contracting has been providing maintenance services for more than 35 years. During this time, Chelgrave has managed hundreds of high-volume projects and, as a result, has extensive experience designing and implementing maintenance solutions for our clients.
Chelgrave provides three levels of maintenance solutions to cater for the different needs of each client and project:
Labour Hire:
• We supply the labour workforce to meet your needs.
• The same as labour hire, but we also supply Maintenance Supervisors to oversee our workforce.
• We supply the labour, supervisors to oversee our workforce, and staff to plan and manage the entire project, in a cost effective manner and on time.
All of the above solutions are provided whilst maintaining an effective line of communication with our clients.
Chelgrave supply the above solutions for a variety of industries, which include (but are not limited to), Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, and Rail, just to name a few.

Labour Hire

Labour Hire is commonly used to meet flexible staffing requirements for projects, plant maintenance, production, and/or engineering needs generated by increased workloads or to simply replace permanent personnel who are absent from work for any reason.
Supplying qualified, committed and reliable tradespeople has been the foundation of Chelgrave Contracting since the first day we opened our doors more than 35 years ago. We are proud that all of our Operations Team are qualified tradespeople. This means that we understand trades and the importance of using quality personnel in the workplace. We know the difference between a Welder and a Boilermaker, a Turner and a Toolmaker, and all the aspects of Fitters, Electricians and Instrument Technicians.
When it comes to labour hire, Chelgrave Contracting has long been considered the specialists. This is a result of our decision to focus specifically on qualified and experienced personnel. All of our personnel are subject to Chelgrave Contracting’s stringent in-house checks to ensure that they are considered “Chelgrave ready” and, subsequently, “Client ready”.

Technical Professionals

Engaging the services of an experienced, qualified, and competent Technical Professional can be one of the most challenging tasks facing Australian businesses today.
In these competitive conditions, Chelgrave’s Technical Staff division has flourished. Our search and selection process is second-to-none and we take the time to ensure that the skills-set of our candidates match those outlined by the client. We have found that too often both clients and candidates have been poorly matched by general recruiters and this has led clients and potential staff to our door. At Chelgrave, we invest the time to fully understand a client’s requirements so that expectations are always exceeded. When you need a Technical Professional, talk to the industry leaders.
• Engineers – Project & Design
• Drafting – Project & Design
• Supervisory and Management
• Technical and Scientific

Technical Professionals are available on contract or permanent placement.

Zero Harm and Certified Systems

Our Zero Harm philosophy aims to build a positive culture of safety in all Chelgrave workplaces to help reduce the number and severity of workplace health and safety incidents. The concept of zero harm means no harm to anyone, anytime, while at work. While some arguably contest the feasibility of zero harm, nonetheless, conceptually, Chelgrave aspire towards this as the ultimate goal.
Industry leaders play a vital role in achieving Zero Harm and Chelgrave considers itself to be a leader in its field. Through committing to share innovation, knowledge, and experience with others, Zero Harm attributes demonstrated in the workplace can make a significant contribution in raising the standards of workplace health and safety. As well as aiming for Zero harm, Chelgrave head office is accredited in Certified Systems Quality ISO 9001:2015 Health & Safety AS 4801, and Environmental ISO 14001:2015
