about JGC

I was born and raised in Townsville so home soil is very close to me and my business plays a huge part in my life. My wife Lisa is the account manager, Sam, my best man at my wedding is the Business Manager and Carl one of our Supervisors, well I was his best man at his wedding. You can’t argue, that we aren’t a family business, we are more than that. Our staff aren’t just work colleagues we are all close in friendship as well which makes for a great work environment, and that positivity, and enthusiasm in everyone helps me encourage our drive and enthusiasm right from the first phone call through to driving in nails on site. 

I can honestly say, our service is so unique you will never deal with another building company like ours again.  

We want to find out about you, just as much as you want to find out about us, so give us a call today and let’s see if we are the right builder for you.  




We’re not just a builder that builds for clients, we’re a builder that collaborates with our clients right from the beginning (right back in the ideas stage) and we help our clients progress with their ideas and dreams from there – no job we do is the same and that’s one of the reasons our business is different to others
