Simon Marr is Managing Director of Marr Contracting – a third-generation family-owned Australian
business that is challenging the global construction industry to think differently about craneage solutions.
With over 35 years in the industry, Simon started in the family business as a yard boy cleaning bolts
during the school holidays. Today, he is leading the business to challenge craneage methodologies and
develop new craneage solutions for large-scale, complex projects across the construction, mining, oil and
gas, power generation, agriculture and public infrastructure sectors across the globe.
Simon has overseen the successful delivery of craneage solutions for projects including: the
1915Çanakkale Bridge (Turkey), ICDB Brookfield Place (Dubai) and ALEC One Za’abeel (Dubai), the ALBA
Potline 6 (Bahrain), the Chevron-operated Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG Projects (Western Australia), and
Sydney Metro (Martin Place, Barangaroo, Castle Hill, Central & Crows Nest Stations) to name a few.
