Company History

Kelly Precast Concrete

Aquarius Precast originated as Kelly Precast Concrete in 1965. The business developed over the years to eventually manufacture a vast range and variety of precast products helping Brisbane become the modern city it is today. Kelly Precast Concrete embraced environmental and community demands early and was the first Company in Australia to develop prefabricated trade waste Oil, Grease and Silt interceptor traps.

Our Company pioneered the introduction of domestic & commercial septic tanks, sewerage treatment systems, concrete water tanks & trade waste traps in Queensland.

We developed many of the precast concrete pits, sewerage manhole liners, access chambers and other civil, electrical and plumbing products used in everyday building and construction today.


Aquarius Slipform

Aquarius Slipform extruded concrete barrier walls and kerb & channel for the civil construction industry in major infrastructure projects for many years. Many Federal motorway, State highway and Municipal main road upgrade projects were successfully undertaken throughout Queensland and NSW.  Other slipform projects included feed bunds and driveways for Cattle Feedlots.

 Concrete Barrier walls and associated V drains are now standard safety features in all Motorways and major roads throughout Australia.
