What we do


Camex have extensive experience in projects involving significant earthworks. We have a range of specialist equipment including Excavators, Graders and Bulldozer machines and appropriate compaction machinery. Where required we will also utilise hired prime mover equipment.

With the largest fleet of TOPCON GPS equipped machines in the Waikato region we can carry out excavation designs in the most efficient and accurate manner based on models produced by our in-house surveying team.

Our earthworks team have extensive experience in working with different soil types and challenging conditions. At the outset of any project we ensure that the project deliverables are established and a construction management plan (CMP) and Inspection and Test Plans (ITP) incorporating project specific test regimes is put in place within the framework of our quality management system.

Rigorous environmental and sediment control is our upmost importance with any project involving earthworks. We have a wide range of installation and maintenance of environment controls. Recently we constructed a Triton stormwater retention pond which was the largest in the southern hemisphere using the Triton system, this was made possible through our use of the latest GPS technology.

Testing including clegg hammers, penetrometers, shear vanes and nuclear density meter tests or specialist moisture content tests. The Beam tests are regularly undertaken by our in-house survey team or third-party providers.

Camex are more than our contractor, they are our partner. They are an integral part of our development team and always have a can do approach, no matter how curly the request is. There is a reason we never go to market for our civil development projects. The whole team from management through to the guys on the ground have a very strong client centric focus and always deliver ahead of programme, on or under budget and most importantly, safely.
