Meet the Builders of Ginninderry – Part 3: APA Homes

A select number of local builders have been handpicked to bring the master planned vision for Ginninderry to life. All of the builders were assessed against a number of criteria, in particular their desire and ability to add to the vision for Ginninderry, as well as offering exceptional value for money and quality.

Our weekly Meet the Builders series will help you to get to know our builders ahead of the release of their house and land packages for sale in 2017.

In our third question and answer of the series, we speak with Andrew Sullivan from APA Homes.

Give us a bit of background on you, your company and your story to date.

Why did you want to be involved in this development?

APA Homes have been involved in many new developments over the past 25 years. We feel we can bring that experience to the table by working closely with the Ginninderry team to help make this one of the best developments in the State – maybe even the country!

What do you love about working in construction?

The construction industry has been our life and source of income for the past 35 years, during which time it has evolved significantly – especially in the last 10 years! Technological advances in design, solar orientation, energy efficiency and a variety of material choices have come a long way since we first started out, making it an exciting time to be in construction.

What we really love about it is no matter how long you`ve been around you can never stop learning and improving the system; which at the end of the day gives our clients more options, higher quality and more efficient homes. A truly satisfying moment is the one where we shake hands with our excited, happy clients while handing over the keys and knowing we have created that.
