60 years;
delivering superior remedial solutions

Founded in 1959, the RM Watson team initially worked as specialist contractors in the natural stone fixing industry. With the decline in the use of natural stone during the 1970’s and the growth of the precast concrete industry, the company evolved firstly into the fixing of precast concrete and then into the repair of our built environment.

In the current day, our project managers and site team have diversified their expertise to respond to the ever-growing range of structures and building materials that are present across Australia’s modern built environment.

Our team apply their breadth of knowledge and innate understanding of construction and remediation to not only carry out traditional repair methodologies, but also address the numerous complications that arise as architects and designers employ “new” materials to make their structure stand out.

We strive for innovation and development in the field of construction under the guise of the experience and superior structural knowledge we developed over the last 60 years.

View the RM Watson History

Founded in April 1959 by

Raymond Maurice Watson,

RM Watson initially worked as

a specialist contractor in the

natural stone fixing industry.

The company developed a

proud reputation as Australia’s

leading stone mason,

responsible for the stonework

of some of Australia’s most

historic landmarks including

The Mint, The War Memorial

and the Reserve Bank.

RM Watson’s expertise evolved

in line with the growth of the

precast concrete industry in

Australia, a material not widely

understood at the time. The

RMW team were responsible for

maintaining some of Australia’s

most iconic concrete structures

including the Waterboard,

Parliament House and

Blues Point Tower

RM Watson’s combined

expertise in stone and concrete

saw the company’s focus shift to

the remediation of old and new

structures, a key priority for the

business to this day.

Under the leadership of Tony

Watson, the company began to

introduce new remedial

techniques to the repair industry,

focusing on solutions that

delivered enduring structural

integrity.

As a leader in the industry, RM

Watson strived to re-define how

successful remedial repairs were

measured, highlighting the

importance of delivering

projects both safely and

sustainably.

RM Watson’s focus shifted to

the refurbishment and

repositioning of assets, helping

clients realise the true value of

their property portfolio.

RM Watson continue to evolve

their refurbishment division,

while simultaneously

addressing the structural

problems stemming from a

20-year building boom

governed under

self-certification.
