The Georgiou Group is one of Australia’s leading private civil and construction companies.

Born in Greece, Mr Georgiou migrated to Australia at 18 years of age. He founded Direct Drainage in 1977 and in 1993, he launched a precast company called Geocrete. In 1994, they acquired Roadpave and two years later the three companies merged to become Georgiou Group.

The company has since expanded beyond WA, with offices in Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. According to The Herald Sun, in 2022-2023, the Georgiou Group recorded over $1 billion in revenue.
