About Us

Altere Group is the registered trading name of PCG Contractors (Aust) Pty Ltd.

We are ISO 9001, ISO 14001, & AS 4801 certified.

The company is a family business, owned and operated by father and son – Terry and Edward Phillips. The registered office is at Hurstbridge with the plant yard at Wallan, Victoria.

Altere Group was started by Terry Phillips with Edward at his side over ten years ago with the view of growing the business into the substantial, quality contracting operation it has become.  Today, you’ll find Edward on site project managing his crew while Terry is behind the scenes providing operational management support.

The foundations of Altere Group were laid nearly 25 years ago with Terry nurturing and teaching Edward every facet of the construction industry; everything from the construction of 30 storey buildings in the Melbourne CBD to the legal and contractual negotiations at the top end of Collins Street.

With over 50 years of experience between them in the residential and commercial construction industry, Terry and Edward are a formidable team.

They love concrete and concrete structures, and saw a market, demand and opportunity to specialise in excavation, concreting and civil work with truck and plant hire.

Both men are qualified carpenters, with Edward pursuing anything to do with concrete, precast concrete panels, reinforcement and heavy civil works, while Terry has academic qualifications and project management experience in Melbourne and in the Middle East building high rise buildings, infrastructure and palaces.

They have built a strong reputation for quality workmanship, strong communication skills, respect and reliability.  They are forever striving for excellence in the product they deliver and in developing relationships with their clients, subcontractors and employees.

Much of their work is repeat business for satisfied clients, impressed with contracts being completed on time, to a high standard and to budget.
