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 our 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!
