Our Services

Earthmoving is our speciality. We have over 50 years’ experience in earthmoving and creating the foundations for a wide range of projects across North Queensland.

Combined with our decades of earthmoving and civil construction experience, we offer high-tech grading technology, and a modern fleet of dozers, graders, excavators and bobcats. We can safely and efficiently complete any earthmoving project whatever its size or location.

Many of our clients prefer the surety of a fixed price contract for their earthmoving requirements. We can work with you from the early planning stages to give you the most cost-effective earthwork solutions and utilisation of your site, right through to completion. Or we can step in where required.

Specialists in Earthmoving, Asbestos & Demolition

Nordig provides earthmoving, asbestos management and demolition services, as well as the hire and operation of a wide range of earthmoving and construction equipment.

Founded in Cairns in 1982, Nordig operates across North Queensland delivering projects and supplying plant and equipment for local government authorities, building contractors and the broader construction industry.

We specialise in highly complex projects, and have the skills, staff and equipment to deliver innovative solutions for the most logistically challenging sites.

Testament to the quality of our work is the volume of repeat business we receive from our long-term clients, and our unshaken reputation as the Far North’s most experienced earthmoving contractor.

Why we do what we do

“Having grown up in Cairns, I love using my experience and knowledge to help our community grow.

I also love being a Dad, watching my children grow up in this amazing place and sharing what I love about our region with them as much as possible.”



Nordig has an established and fully integrated management system, which places a high priority on the health and safety of our employees. Each team member completes a full induction and must hold a current construction.

White Card before working on any project. Nordig’s Site Safety Plans detail the requirements of each job, including hazard and risk management, and our teams conduct daily pre-start meetings and weekly safety and machinery inspections.

We regularly monitor and review our systems to ensure we conform to contractual and regulatory requirements, and that all employees adopt our policies and values while on our work sites.


Taking care of the environment is extremely important to Nordig. We are a local, family business and strive to maintain our unique and sensitive environment for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. So, we continue to monitor the effects of our operations and develop smart practical measures that reduce our overall environmental impact. This includes the use of erosion and sediment controls and strategies to minimise dust and excessive noise.

We regularly maintain and inspect our machinery to reduce the risk of oil and pollutant spills, and prevent the transport of weeds, seeds and disease from one site to another.


Nordig carries out monthly training sessions and weekly toolbox talks with our staff. We also monitor individual performance levels and provide technical and skills training as necessary. New team members are carefully selected based on their appropriate qualifications and experience; attitude and work ethic; grooming and appearance; communication skills and the ability to fit into the Nordig team culture.

If necessary, they are also provided with extra training before being sent to site.

We pride ourselves on our open communication between staff and management in our endeavour to always create a better standard of work for all.
