DM Civil is a privately owned company established in 1976 by Reg Toohey, Tony Spanjers and his late brother Eric Spanjers. Since then, we have grown to be one of Western Australia’s most trusted and respected civil contractors.

Our rich business heritage combined with our honest, transparent approach has ensured an outstanding reputation for delivering results to a diverse range of clients.
