Glenn Hoffmann has been a business owner in the earthmoving industry since 1984. Growing up in agriculture farming Glenn was born with a zest for working outdoors and with machinery. He purchased his first backhoe at 21 years old and often worked 100+ hours a week to cover the machine's repayments. As Glenn's business and fleet grew,

Hoffmann Excavation and Soil Yard was born, suppling machinery and landscaping supplies to country Victoria. 

In 1996, with his wife and two young children, Glenn made the decision to relocate to sunny QLD and

Hofmann Excavations started operations in Brisbane shortly after. A family business with a friendly reputation in Brisbane soon grew significantly and the opportunity presented to merge businesses with one of the largest plant hire companies in Brisbane. The following 10 years period was paramount for building a solid reputation in the industry. In 2013 Glenn decided that family business was in his heart and Hoffmann Civil separated out on to its own once again.


Today Hoffmann Civil is proud to be family owned and run by Glenn and his two daughters, Keisha and Tehlini, along with a long standing team and extensive fleet of machinery. We are passionate about producing meticulous results for our clients, from residential owners to Tier 1 construction companies. We pride ourselves on sustaining close working relationships with our clients, suppliers and team members while we all work together to enhance Queensland for a future we can be proud of.
