Our approach is direct, honest and respectful.
People working well together is the key to any successful project. Creating good work environments for everyone involved is our hallmark.

As a family firm, we maintain a traditional building company model with our own carpenters, apprentices, labourers and crane crews. We aim to set an example as an employer and are proud of our extremely low staff turnover.

Our leaders have generally come up through the company. They have a deep understanding of LTM’s unique culture.

"There is culture, there is care and pride in everything we do and it comes from the top and filters down."

In our staff's words:

“Everyone puts in the work and has a laugh along the way.”
“I always feel like I am treated fairly and know where I stand.”
“There is culture, there is care and pride in everything we do and it comes from the top and filters down.”
“Supportive and inclusive in a real way… just respecting others the way we all want to be respected.”
