Founded in 1965 by brothers Jim and Neville Perkins, the company began as a Bunbury-based contractor pursuing a diverse range of commercial, industrial and civil engineering projects throughout the southwest of Western Australia.

In 1983 Neville’s son Dan joined the company as an apprentice carpenter. Progressing through the roles of foreman, site manager and contracts manager, he was appointed Managing Director in 1995.

Under his stewardship, Perkins has grown into one of the state’s major commercial builders, with offices in Perth and Bunbury, with an annual turnover now over $150m.
