Who are JWB?

The Next Challenge

The JWB family welcomed a highly competent Project and Civil Construction team in 2019.  They have proven to be a formidable team winning & safely delivering works throughout QLD on a number of projects.

Going into the future, JWB is focusing on delivering works as Principal Contractor on iconic projects whilst ensuring its maintenance and asset management teams are working consistently.  The JWB team are a vibrant, busy and successful example of what can be achieved when supporting your clients at every step of the journey.


Danny, Mathew and the team saw an opportunity when one their professional peers decided to downsize and withdraw from its Queensland State works.  JWB welcomed a large group of successful, diligent railway professionals into the team and opened a depot in Gladstone.  This team has delivered on behalf of our clients repeatedly and enabled the expansion of the organisation to include the Mackay and Townsville depots. The diligent & hardwork ethic of these teams enabled a large growth for the organisation.

During this period, JWB also started the Protection Officer department.  This highly trained team has proven to be hard working, trustworthy and very competent.


Building on the reputation for quality in delivering safe & successful works, the Queensland based teams started work interstate.  This included successfully delivering works in New South Wales, the ACT and WA. 

With the support from our teams working away JWB delivered complex project works for our interstate clients leading to the expansion into New South Wales and the opening of the Sydney depot.

New Home

Following two years of very hard work, Danny and Mathew purchased land in Meadowbrook and set the foundations for the new head office depot.

Members of the team utilised their building qualifications were able to start construction in late 2014.

The building quickly took shape when the crews were between works on behalf of our clients.

Humble Start

After working in QLD Rail for 32 years, Danny Bakos recognised the divide between work that required completion and available rail teams. Together with his son, Mathew Bakos, they formed JWB Constructions to provide an alternative supply of dedicated, professional teams to Queensland Rail as well as other rail companies.

JWB’s humble beginnings started in the home office and home shed.
