The appointment commenced on Monday 16 August, with Craig reporting directly to CEO Darren James.
Keltbray has said that Craig’s role, new for the company, will address engineering, research, development, and innovation – working in conjunction with the rest of the executive board. He will also take responsibility for the corresponding technical and engineering assurance across the group.
Craig was previously head of engineering for Multiplex Europe. He has been involved in the design and construction of commercial and high-rise buildings, stadia, and airports across Australia, the Middle East and Europe.
Darren James said: “We are delighted that Craig has chosen to join us and help lead the next stage of Keltbray’s engineering development. Craig’s appointment is hard-wired to fulfilling Keltbray’s core purpose – ‘to redefine the way sustainable development is delivered’.
“He has an industry reputation as a leading technical expert in the sustainable design and delivery of complex buildings and infrastructure, and his appointment marks a step change in our engineering ambitions.

His experience of successfully developing cutting-edge ideas will greatly benefit the Group as we evolve our strategic focus towards expanding the opportunities to deploy our integrated self-delivery model in existing and new markets.”
Craig Moorfield commented on his new role: “I am thrilled to be joining Keltbray at such an exciting point in its development.
“I genuinely believe it has the strategic focus, the resources and most importantly, the right talent to lead the specialist engineering and construction industry, setting the standards by which all other organisations in the sector will be measured.”
