Cooke & Dowsett

Experience counts

Cooke & Dowsett services the construction industry with great pride - success built on a reputation for delivering exceptional service on some of Australia and New Zealand’s most iconic construction projects for nearly three decades. From humble beginnings back in 1992, working from the back of a garage, few would have imagined what Cooke & Dowsett would become.  Today the name Cooke & Dowsett has become synonymous with quality, a reputation forged by successfully delivering services to some of our customers’ most challenging projects.

Founders Chadd and Scott have plumbing in their veins and remain an integral part of today’s operations.  It’s their personal drive and commitment to service that cements Cooke & Dowsett as a leader in the world of commercial plumbing.  Our in-house design team work alongside our customers to create innovative, safety in design principals and value managed engineered solutions.  We pride ourselves in setting and continually lifting the quality benchmark for our industry.  Our third-party accredited quality management system highlights our commitment to excellence, making us a partner of choice for developers, government departments, private partnership consortiums and a majority of Australasia’s most recognised and respected builders.

Today we employ more than 400 staff and subcontractors operating from State and project offices throughout Australasia.  We’re delivering design and construct, hydraulic construction and project management services locally, and frequently mobilise our workforce to remote locations both nationally and internationally.  With a strong focus in the retail, accommodation, infrastructure, health, education and commercial property sectors, some of our blue-ribbon projects include the Elizabeth Quay Waterfront Precinct incorporating Ritz Carlton, Joan Kirner Women’s & Children’s Hospital, Victorian Desalination Plant, Bendigo Hospital, Wagga Base Hospital, Hobart’s Parliament Square incorporating Marriot Hotel and Daydream Island Refurbishment to name just a few. International projects have been completed in Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, China and New Zealand.

Today, we form part of the Cooke & Dowsett Plumbing Group delivering construction, maintenance and retail services across the plumbing industry.  We’re proud of what we’ve achieved but even more excited by what our future holds.  We’d love to help you build your future too!

Cooke & Dowsett is a proud sponsor and shareholder of “NUDJ Plumbing”, a not for profit organisation supporting indigenous youth through plumbing apprenticeships which provide skills to improve their communities.
