02 History

65 years and three generations of building experience

Spanning six and a half decades, the Crema Constructions story began with the vision of company founder Gilberto ‘Beppi’ Crema. Arriving from Italy in 1951, Beppi started working with cousins Dino and Terry Camillo, who ran a small terrazzo, concrete and formwork business known as Camillo Brothers. When Dino and Terry returned to Italy in the early 1960s, Beppi refocused the business on concrete and formwork, establishing a new head office in St Kilda.

Under Beppi’s guidance, the Camillo Brothers business expanded in the 1970s, taking on larger building and development projects. During this time the company emerged as a pioneer in the manufacture and use of tilt-up precast construction. Soon, Beppi’s three sons – Luciano, Romeo and Louis – joined the business.

During the 1980s, the company continued to build upon the strong relationships it had developed with its clients over the last decade. The business was rebranded as Crema Camillo and a new headquarters was established in Salmon Street, Port Melbourne. This included a new precast concrete factory, which saw the establishment of Cambar Precast, a new exciting division of the company.

Further growth in the 1990s resulted in the creation of 
another specialist company, Piave Premix Concrete. The business name changed to Crema Constructions in 2001, to better reflect the family ownership of the company. The company’s proud family tradition continued during this period, with the third generation Crema's joining the business in various roles. Crema Constructions now takes on projects up to $250 million, with up to dozen jobs underway at any one time.
