Justin Papatua

Justin Papatua

Site Foreman | Steelfix

Commenced in this industry in 2009, working for E&S Steelfix. The two biggest jobs that Justin had undertaken as a steelfixer were the VCCC (Victoria Cancer Centre) as well as Myer Emporium. He has been the leading hand on smaller sites such several as apartment block projects, leading teams of between 5 – 10 men. “Juzzy” believes that, regardless of how big or small the job is, every project is rewarding on its own merits. It is satisfying to see the final build – the fruits of your labour. He is motivated by the challenge that comes with the variety of tenders JP Steelfix & Concrete secures, striving to meet the requirements of each project as well as being able to use his specific skillset.
