About Us

COMPANY

It all started with a vision, Peter and Angelo saw potential in the civil construction industry and took the plunge acquiring their first earthmoving machine, a track loader. A major step forward for the business was winning their first project, a 30 units residential subdivision with Taunton Development, as a Principal Contractor and since then the business never looked back. The first office was opened in Bayswater, before it was moved to Carrum Downs and subsequently the current headquarters at Dandenong South.

In 2009, Montdami welcomed the next generations of the D’Amico family, Angelo junior and Sam, into the business.
