About Us

Established in 1981

Since its inception in 1981, City Circle Group (CCG), owned and operated by the Skidmore Family, has built a reputation as a leading provider in demolition, decommissioning, remediation, excavation and recycling in Australia. It has grown to offer a diverse range of expert services tailored to each project and through a ceaseless commitment to every client along the way.

CCG constantly strives for innovation and best practice with its core principles focused on expertise, sustainability and safety while delivering the highest level of service to its clients and the environment. Since introducing recycling and reuse initiatives, the Company is now unique in its capacity to not only dismantle, demolish and deconstruct a building, but also to transform the waste into new building materials and commodities. It is CCG’s sustainability goals and practices that set it apart from competitors and its reputation for excellence and reliability have made it a preferred contractor to many of Australia’s top tier developers and builders.

“CCG has been a lifetime passion for our family. We began as a small rubbish removal company over 40 years ago and our goals were to push boundaries, push ourselves and our business to the forefront of the industry”

Peter Skidmore, Director of City Circle Group.

Safety Culture

The heart of CCG is its highly skilled and experienced workforce of over 150 people and our commitment to them is striving for ‘zero harm’ in the workplace.

With accreditation through AS/NZS 4801 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, as well as professionally developed internal practises, City Circle has fostered an environment where health and safety come first with no compromise.

Through our leading OH&S department we are constantly seeking to innovate and improve our systems. CCG implements many systems to achieve a ‘zero harm’ workplace including Demolition and Construction Management Plans (DCMP) and Health, Safety and Environmental Management Plans (HSEP). These systems help identify potential risks to the people we complete our operations around, our staff, and the environment.


These top level systems are complimented with industry standard practices such as daily pre-start meetings, toolbox meetings and start cards where our people on site openly communicate and create solutions to manage, engineer or eliminate potential hazards encompassing our safety mantra, ‘Think. Safety First.
