​The story of BESIX Watpac began 40 years ago to the day. On 15 June 1983, the small Queensland construction firm Watkins Pacific was founded by Gregory Watkins and a group of well-known construction industry professionals. The rest is history.

Over the last four decades, we have expanded across Australia and into New Zealand, delivering over $25 billion worth of projects and truly making our mark on the local construction landscape.

Today as we celebrate the last 40 years, CEO Mark Baker says we also look to the future as multidisciplinary construction contractor BESIX Watpac.

“We were always an organisation that did great work in the Australian construction landscape,” Mr Baker said.

“Since integrating with BESIX Group in 2018, we’ve been able to accelerate the fantastic attributes we’ve always brought to construction projects through the support, experience, network, and in-house engineering expertise that BESIX Group brings to our business.”

While the company has evolved, our people and partnerships have always remained at the heart of our business and will continue to be central to our success into the future.

A heartfelt thank you to all the people who have been part of our story over the last 40 years and continue to shape who we are today.

As we embark on the next phase of our journey, we are excited about the next 40 years and beyond as a leading Australian and New Zealand multidisciplinary contractor.
