Joel’s career in construction started in 2000 when he commenced a carpentry apprenticeship. In the fourth year of his apprenticeship Joel made the decision to return to study and gain further qualification. Juggling undergraduate commitments with full-time work was rewarded when he graduated from the University of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Building and Construction Management in 2008. Joel then enjoyed a successful five-year stint with Bolkm, a project management and construction company, before leaving in mid-2012.
Drawing on his years of experience in the industry Joel created Skelcon, a boutique construction company focusing on commercial and residential constructions and development. Having worked for some of Newcastle’s premier building companies Joel developed Skelcon on the premise of transparency with clients and partners. Joel’s personality, professionalism and skill ensure great relationships with a range of highly professional sub-contractors and suppliers which allows Skelcon Maintenance to provide superior service across all aspects of Building Maintenance.
In mid-2015, Joel and Brenton partnered to form Skelcon Maintenance. The goal was to meet a growing demand for quality, cost effective commercial and residential property maintenance with the same committed, honest and service driven approach evident at Skelcon.
