About Us

Our Story

Blue Sky Contracting was founded by ‘QA Legend’ and CivilPro creator, Dennis Gascoigne. The Desktop was created by Dennis from his ‘shed’ as a side-project, and was first released in 2001. Since then, it has not only grown significantly – but it has become a mainstay of the Australian construction industry, supporting major infrastructure and small projects alike.

Blue Sky Contracting initially partnered with Herga Group in 2018 to release the Cloud version. However, in 2020, this partnership grew to incorporate all CivilPro technology (including the existing desktop), and a new company was founded: CivilPro Software PTY LTD.

This partnership will take CivilPro into the future. It is a matching of small business ethic with the resources of a leading, national construction technology group – and it will ensure that CivilPro will become even bigger, better, and more exciting!

Herga Group of Companies

The genesis of the Herga Group dates back to 1888 when Alphonse Herga opened a watch makers business in Brisbane. From the early 1900’s Herga has been run by the Bright Family and a 4th generation of the family is still leading the business today.

For well over 130 years the Herga Group has been involved in the Sales and support of Surveying Instruments in Australia. In the last 30 years we have grown from the core Surveying business to include a number of multi-faceted technology businesses encompassing hardware, software solutions, consulting, and solutions development.

We are proud to be the exclusive Trimble distribution Partners for Geospatial, and Construction Solutions within our Territories. Headquartered in Brisbane, we have grown to include 15 Regional Offices and more than 220 employees, Servicing Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea.
