Boya Group is a Supply Nation certified, Aboriginal owned Indigenous business, offering construction and
maintenance services to government, commercial and residential sectors.
Boya Group was founded in 2017 by Jonathon Griffin and Michael Walters, in partnership with Shelford Constructions Pty Ltd, a West Australian owned and operated building company specialising in residential and commercial construction since 1991. Boya Group brings together our Indigenous knowledge and passion for creating pathways that offer greater opportunity for Indigenous people, with the extensive construction capability of Shelford Constructions.
Boya Group creates genuine economic partnerships with local Aboriginal communities, by assisting to secure the future of our Indigenous youth through the creation of employment, training and development opportunities.
By leveraging the skills and capabilities of all parties we are committed to ensuring the success of your construction project.
Jonathan Griffin is a proud Noongar man who was the driving force behind the foundation of Boya Group. After completing a Diploma in Building and Construction in 2017, Jonathon is currently completing a BSc in Construction Management and is working towards obtaining his Builders Registration Certificate.
Jonathon applied his construction qualification to a supervisory role at Shelford Constructions where he has now completed several homes and commercial buildings under the guidance of senior Shelford Construction personnel.
Prior to forming Boya Group, Jonathon had a successful thirteen year career in the AFL with the Adelaide and Fremantle Football Clubs. During this time, he developed mentoring, leadership, communication and management skills, which has seen him become a positive role model and leader to Indigenous players as well as the wider Noongar community.
Michael Walters is a well-respected Noongar community leader at both sporting level leadership and with today’s youth. His desire to continue providing leadership and opportunities for Indigenous people once his football career is complete, was also a driver for him to be a founding partner in the establishment of Boya.
Michael is currently in the leadership team for the Fremantle Football Club and is completing a Certificate IV in Building and Construction.
