Ballard's Earthmoving & Demolition - Joyner, QLD
PO Box 3311
JOYNER, QLD, 4500
We are a privately-owned husband and wife Australian Company and Anthony Ballard, the owner started civil works in 1984 in Brisbane and went on to change his name to Jurasic Earthmoving on 1 April 2006 (they thought the excavators resembled dinosaurs - large & noisy with big bucket mouths). The name Jurasic also suggests 'old-school work ethics and defined experience’. Due to its strength in the first few months in the broad construction market, it grew to then become a Company on 28 June 2006 as Jurasic Earthmoving Pty Ltd.
We have decided to go “back.... to the future” and re-brand as BALLARD’S EARTHMOVING & DEMOLITION from 1 July 2018 still under the banner of Jurasic Earthmoving Pty Ltd ABN 36120417745.
Our mission statement is to always provide the best outcome for the client and listen to their requirements, we are efficient, affordable and reliable! Our approach is consistentcy in service, compliance in licensing, insurances, staff training, workplace health and safety and we are very competitive with our pricing.
Anthony's fond memories as a child of time spent with his Grandfather Eric in the Australian outback has given him the drive and passion.
Eric Ballard’s knowledge and expertise were passed on with relation to dam sinking and cattle cartage that started out in the mid-1930s in Longreach, Queensland. Eric has been recognised in the Hall of Fame for his contributions to the Road Trains well known in the Australian outback. Eric Ballard was the first person to put the idea into place of attaching one truck behind the other, to cart more cattle the long distances on dirt roads with no infrastructure.
Anthony Ballard is a very hard working, honest and capable helpful man with 35 plus years’ experience individually in the general hire of tip trucks, semis, water trucks, skid-steer loaders, excavators and floats. He is the driving force behind its expansion into the broad plant hire, demolition and earthmoving contracts market and has successfully completed a wide range of projects.
From the beginnings of the demolishing of Cribb Island (the suburb) which made way for the extension of the international airport/runways to the demolishing of South Brisbane to make way for Expo ’88 to sub-divisions mainly on Brisbane’s northside, our range of equipment has been increased and has diversity to cater for changing needs in the civil construction arena. Having our own float transport and infrastructure as in mobile office, temporary fencing and other tangibles enables us to meet schedules in a timely manner as we rely solely on ourselves.
We specialise in creating sub-divisions, demolition both residential and commercial, bulk rubbish removal, site clearing and float hire.
We identify hazards, assess risks and implement appropriate controls, provide information and training to employees showing 100 percent commitment to the new chain of responsibility laws and safety protocols.
Our commitment is that, the job we start is the job that we finish, to the stage that it must be 100 percent as best as what the site will allow.
Our expertise can tackle the so-called impossible jobs, for our attitude is " If it can be done, we will do it!". We are called sometimes at the eleventh hour to save the day, where another contractor has been unreliable. Our ability to provide for our clients has been tried and proven.
In summary, an experienced contractor with a sound balance sheet, clearly defined business objectives and plans with a comprehensive knowledge of the earthworks. Our expertise has been proven to our clients, as we consistently are delivering on time and although we have faced the hardship of non-payers we have recovered and look to the future with plans to upgrade again.
We value our staff and our aim is to ensure we are giving the best value, with the right equipment for the job to our clients!
