About Us

Meet the owners

We are Melbourne’s leading specialist permeable paving installation company, operating independently since 2014. Our reputation and the success of our installations are a result of the wide range of knowledge, attention to detail and quality workmanship we instil in our specialist team. We install high quality permeable paving for any application from domestic driveways to heavy duty commercial pavements.

But what’s the New Dawn difference? You’ll deal with the people on this webpage. We’re a family-run business, and there’s no subcontracting of jobs, no sub-standard installations, no labour hire – just a quality company installing a specialised product properly while creating pavements to last a lifetime!

We work all over Victoria, for both domestic and commercial clients – just get in touch and experience the New Dawn difference yourself!

“I’ll go the extra mile to install paving with a difference you can be proud of!”
