Manteena Commercial is the safe pair of hands you can trust with your next construction project, whether it’s big or small, government or private. And because we’re a highly collaborative firm, we’ll always ensure you’re kept in the loop throughout the construction process.

So let’s build something strong, together. But first, read on and get to know us better.





We can provide a wide array of services and expertise for any stage of your project, from early contractor involvement through to building remediation services. Or if you’d rather we manage the entire project from start to finish – no problem.

So, what’s the secret to the high standard of services we provide? For starters, we hire some of the brightest sparks in our industry. And then we team them up, with the complementary skills necessary, to be a perfect fit for your project.

Add to this our friendly, collaborative approach and specialist knowledge, and we’re sure you’ll be as pleased by the smooth construction process as the finished building itself.

Every project we undertake includes:

  • On-site WHS management
  • Program and cost management
  • Project construction management

  • Quality management
  • Environmental management

  • Traffic management
  • Detailed project reporting

And when your project’s finished, we’ll make sure you’re happy by undertaking these post-construction services:

  • Comprehensive close out of defects during the defects liability period
  • Provision of a comprehensive Operation and Maintenance Manual
  • Client training, where applicable
  • Lessons Learnt workshop
