Community

 

At Hall, we understand our business can only thrive with the support of the communities in which we live and work. Our team possesses a strong belief in giving back to community members and helping them in a meaningful way.

We believe in encouraging potential and strengthening our communities through education.

Placing a strong focus on supporting future generations, we are committed to nurturing the growth and academic development of our youth. As such, we provide a scholarship to engineering students at the University of the Sunshine Coast, have funded university research projects, and regularly donate to local schools to enhance the learning environment for students.


The Les and Mary Hall Family Scholarship


As a symbol of the company’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which they work, Hall Contracting established the Les and Mary Hall family scholarship in 2009.

Les and Mary Hall founded Hall Contracting in 1946. Over the past 65-plus years, the business has grown from a one-man operation to a multi-faceted company employing more than 180 staff and operating on a local, national and international stage. Recipients of the Les and Mary Hall Family Scholarship include:

  • 2014: Darcy Korn
  • 2013: Jack Findlay
  • 2012: Ryan Vass
  • 2011: Olivia Goatham-Ryan
  • 2010: Stephen Kime
  • 2009: Allanah Fortington

The Fiji Study Bursary


Having undertaken river dredging works in Fiji, Hall Contracting was excited to further support projects that would benefit this region. As such, Hall awarded USC Integrated Coastal Zone Management student Amy Lalonde a $4,000 bursary, which enabled her to travel to Fiji to conduct an in-depth study on coastal zone management and climate change.
