Dr Clough built his family company from a local civil construction company in the 1950s into a leading international contractor providing engineering, procurement and construction services to some of the world’s largest energy and resources projects. 

He was named WA Citizen of the Year in Industry and Commerce in 1983, and won the Australasian Institution of Electrical Engineers James N Kirby Award and the Institution of Engineers Australia, Peter Nicol Russell Memorial Medal in 1993 and the Australian Institute of Company Directors (WA) inaugural gold medal for contributions to engineering, industry and commerce in 1994. In 1997 Dr Clough received a Services to Construction Award from the Australian Contractors' Association in recognition of his lifelong contribution to the construction industry.
