About Us

Youngs Building Contractors (YBC) is one of Gladstone’s most recognised & reputable construction companies specialising in industrial maintenance, capital works and commercial builds.

Our services are tailored specifically for the Gladstone region and our experience draws on over 66 years servicing this community. As a fourth generation construction company Director Michael Young has continued to grow and expand the company by building on the strong business foundations laid before him by:

  • John Young & Sons
  • George W Young & Sons
  • R & J Young Building Contractors
John Young & Sons expanded into Gladstone in 1949 with George Young at the helm. George played an integral part in rebuilding much of Gladstone after the cyclone of 1949 ravaged the city.  The company quickly established their name as a leading industrial and commercial construction company and was responsible for:
  • The first conveyor belt for the Gladstone Harbour Board
  • Several QAL and Boyne Smelter expansions.
  • At least 27 of the buildings in Goondoon Street
  • Many of our churches, pubs & banks
  • Schools & Hospital
  • Numerous commercial buildings
Young’s Building Contractors strives to provide services that fulfill the needs of our clients by combining quality workmanship with extensive industry experience. We believe that our extensive hands-on construction and senior managerial experience sets us apart from the field.  Our ability to deliver innovative and appropriate solutions on time is evidenced by our growing list of repeat clients.
