Our History

Our founder, Mike Tomkins, places great value in his family’s tradition of builders who start their own companies.


From a young man learning his trade under his father’s tutelage, Mike has taken his strong understanding of building practices and developed a commercial building company. When starting Tomkins Commercial, Mike wanted to build his own legacy but remain committed to the family values that have held the Tomkins name in good stead since 1951.


From humble beginnings focused on special projects and community works, Tomkins Commercial is now looking towards the future as one of Queensland’s most reputable building companies.
