OUR STORY AND VISION
Hicks Civil and Mining is a 100% Aboriginal owned civil and earthworks business operating in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Hicks Civil and Mining was established in 2010 by Peter Hicks who has a long-standing career in the civil construction and mining industry. Backed by the experience and support of Lisa Hicks (wife), Keryn Kalzee and Caitlin Hicks Forshaw (daughters), Hicks Civil and Mining has positioned itself as a reputable Aboriginal family business.
Peter is a Ngarluma man who was born and raised in the Pilbara region before entering the mining and construction industry at the age of seventeen (17). Peter gained most of his experience through various roles within Main Roads, BGC and Rio Tinto before continuing his career as a supervisor with Ngarda Civil and Mining.
Lisa commenced her career in the industry 10 years ago within the Administration and Human Resource departments of various resources companies and then commenced with the family business to take on the role of Human Resource Co-Ordinator.Keryn and Caitlin both commenced work with Ngarda Civil and Mining at the age of sixteen (16) and later worked inside BHP’s Rail and Community departments. All roads would then lead to the family business, where they took on office-based management roles with Lisa.Hicks Civil and Mining began as a small equipment hire business and has now developed its capabilities to service both minor and major works contracts, increased fleet size and positioned the business to be stand alone and fully self-funded within nine (9) years of operation.Together the Hicks family have (a combined) 40 years of experience, are highly respected within the industry and wider communities and maintain an excellent safety record on all projects.
Our vision is to consistently provide sustainable employment opportunities for local people and become the leading Aboriginal civil and earthworks contractor within Western Australia. We strive to challenge ourselves and to exceed our own and others’ expectations in the industry while laying the foundations for future generations to continue the Hicks Civil & Mining legacy.
Our values are integral to the positive culture we have strived to create within all aspects of our business. Our values enable us to maintain healthy relationships, provide job satisfaction, and improve overall business performance, resulting in; safety standards being met and exceeded and; projects being delivered on time, to specification and within budget.
