The Stokes Wheeler Philosophy

With 3 generations of construction history, Stokes Wheeler operates on the philosophy of completing quality construction projects on the foundations of service and integrity. For over 80 years, we have maintained our core values and pride ourselves on being the best not the biggest.

As the construction industry has developed over time, so too has Stokes Wheeler with our ability to adapt to the ever-changing industry. Over time, and with the completion of a range of quality building projects, Stokes Wheeler has developed an exceptional skills base proving we are a market leader in construction.

Stokes Wheeler’s experience in all areas of construction is well regarded within the industry, a fact which is reflected by our high rate of repeat client work. Priding ourselves on building relationships, Stokes Wheeler recognise that client satisfaction and commitment to quality, cost and time go hand-in-hand. Testimony to this is the wide range of clients, architects, consultants and subcontractors with whom Stokes Wheeler enjoy a continued and mutually rewarding relationship.


Originally established in 1928 as W.H.Stokes & Sons Pty Ltd, Damien Stokes is the third generation of the Stokes family involved in the Building Industry.  His foundations were laid during a 12 year “apprenticeship” with his father's construction company. During his time there he learnt the values that make a successful business.

With over 30 years of experience, John Wheeler has developed a broad depth of construction knowledge across all facets of the building industry. As the company has grown, John has never lost sight of the importance of remaining approachable, to clients, staff and subcontractors alike. This, combined with a moral approach to business, stands John in good stead with his industry peers. 

In 1998, good friends Damien & John developed a kindred partnership, both echoing the same principles of integrity and professionalism in their ethos. Together they have strived to foster a company of excellent individuals into a team of excellence that is a leader in their market place.
