EXCLUSIVE: A high-profile construction company suddenly collapses – when the link between Melissa Caddick and the company is revealed
- Midson Construction (Qld) is managed voluntarily
- The director of Jones Partners has appointed the voluntary liquidator
- Bruce Gleeson also liquidated Caddick’s businesses
Another major Australian construction company has gone bankrupt and is being liquidated by the same man who was appointed to unravel Melissa Caddick’s financial affairs.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Midson Construction (QLD) went into voluntary receivership this week as the cost of building materials rises and inflation takes its toll.
Bruce Gleeson, the managing director of Jones Partners, was appointed as a voluntary liquidator for the major commercial builder, according to documents filed with the corporate watchdog, the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.
“Notice is given that at a general meeting of the members of the company on May 30, it has been decided that the company will be liquidated and that Bruce Gleeson will be appointed as liquidator(s),” read a statement from ASIC.
Mr Gleeson was also the liquidator of Melissa Caddick’s businesses after the Sydney fraudster defrauded friends and family of up to $23 million before disappearing in 2020.

At the time of Mr Gleeson’s appointment, there were no current construction contracts with Midson Constructions (Queensland).
“I am in the process of communicating with the company’s creditors and I am beginning my preliminary investigations,” Mr Gleeson said in a statement.
The company’s portfolio of work consists of commercial construction and renovation projects worth up to $30 million across a number of industries.

The Dover Heights home sold for $9.8 million in February, with Mr Gleeson describing the sale at the time as “a good result given the current market conditions.”
There is no suggestion that Midson Construction (Qld) was connected in any way with Melissa Caddick as the appointment of the liquidator was of an administrative nature.
