The Director, Anthony Ballard, created Jurasic Earthmoving Pty Ltd (Jurasic) as a privately owned Australian Company on 1 April 2006. Anthony previously operated under the name of Ballards Earthmoving established in 1984, which had a long history in Brisbane. Due to a change in partnership, Anthony was forced to create a new company name.

Anthony chose the name Jurasic based on his old school principles, strength and long-standing in the industry. This name saw most appropriate for all work done is ethical as best as what the site will allow. His expertise covers a broad expanse of plant operation, demolition and bulk outs and a good aptitude for levels and an attitude of if the job can be done, it will be done.

In summary, Jurasic is an experienced contractor with a sound balance sheet, clearly defined business objectives, and a comprehensive knowledge of the construction market in Queensland. Being of such strong standing Jurasic has been tried and proven and has outstood the test of time in achieving projects by broadening our scope to meet changing industry needs.

Jurasic employs operators and drivers with a minimum of 5 years’ experience in general tipper and water truck work, however the current team have over 25 years’ experience each with a range of varied skills.

History – Earth Moving

From the beginnings of the demolishing of Cribb Island (the suburb) which made way for the extension of the international airport/runways to the demolishing of South Brisbane to make way for Expo ’88 to sub-divisions mainly on Brisbane’s north side we have extended our range of equipment.

In the last 10 years we have diversified from general carting to excavation works consisting of a range of machinery such as: 21ton, 13.5ton, 12ton & 3ton excavators and a 815 Compactor, a double-drum smooth Roller, a 4wd Extender-hoe Backhoe, Skid Steer Bob-cats to semi-tippers, side-tipper and truck and dogs.

Our step-deck trailer which predominantly transports our own earth moving machinery enables us to meet the industry needs at short notice for as we can offer a 24 hour seven day a week service on it and all the rest of the plant and equipment.

Throughout its history, Jurasic has sought to acquire new skills and to improve upon established methods. This philosophy provided a platform for the company to successfully develop a multi-disciplinary construction capability.

We specialise in under-house digs, site clean-ups, bulk rubbish removal, onsite sub divisional civil earthworks, and general tipper and water cart hire. In our operations, we identify hazards, assess risk, implement appropriate controls, where necessary, and provide ongoing information and training to our staff.

Without developing a relationship with our clientele we would not be here and thank our clients thus far.
