Established in 1978, we’ve grown to be a leader in our chosen fields!

one of the region’s
leading demolition companies.

Townsville Demolitions started way back in 1978 by Gabriel (Gabby) Stathooles and Lawrence (Mick) Trotman. A baker by trade, many people remarked that Gabby was going into unchartered waters, when he teamed up with Mick from the city garbage collection.

A small block of land was purchased in Carmel St, Garbutt (our present day site) and Townsville Demolitions was born. Starting small with a couple of ladders, hammers, pinch bars, two old utes and a second hand tip truck, the business started to grow rapidly.

Four decades on, and Townsville Demolitions has grown to become one of the region’s leading demolition companies. With our vast experience, commitment to safety and access to advanced machinery and resources, we continue to meet the needs of community, government and business.

From the smallest residential project, through to large and complex industrial projects, we have performed work on houses, shopping centres, hospitals, schools, police stations, prisons, warehouses and railway yard buildings.

We are proud our accredited services meet ‘industry best practices’, and we always adhere to stringent safety codes.

Based in Townsville, our service area is north to Cairns, east to the ocean, south to Mackay and west to Hughenden.

We work closely with our clients, building trusted long-term relationships that go the distance. No request is too big or too small for our dedicated team. Looking after our valued clients is our number one priority.
