A select number of local builders have been hand-picked 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 part nine of our question and answer of the series, we speak with Amy Symonds from Rawson Homes.
Give us a bit of background on you, your company and your story to date.
Rawson are home builders servicing Sydney, Illawarra, Southern Highlands, Central Coast, Newcastle, Hunter, Canberra and the Central West.
In 1978, Rawson Homes was a small home building company started by the three Rawson brothers, Mark, Peter and Lawrie out of a garage in Dubbo.
Nearly 40 years later, Rawson Homes is a multi-award winning top three New South Wales home builder, delivering over 1000 homes per year across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.
Since its inception, Rawson Homes has achieved almost $500 million in business; and with the brothers still at the helm, is well on the way to continuing to cement its position as one of New South Wales’ top 500 companies.
Rawson Homes has a proud heritage and a reputation for building relationships as well as homes. It’s this genuine commitment to people that is the keystone of Rawson’s philosophy; to provide exceptional quality, industry leading client service, at a real price with no hidden extras.
What type of homes will you be involved in building at Ginninderry?
We know that building a new home is not a one-size-fits-all process. Every family and every build is different. That’s why we have the expertise to offer real solutions that fit everyone’s needs.
We make it a priority to spend real time with our clients, getting to know and understand their specific needs and requirements. Then we find the right solution for them from our large range of single storey and double storey homes.
At Rawson, we keep ahead of emerging trends and evolve all of our homes to meet today’s market demands. It’s just another way we strive to deliver the home our clients have always dreamed of.
Rawson Homes will have two homes on display to showcase our design philosophy, paired with luxury inclusions from industry leading brands.
What do you think makes the Ginninderry development different?
Ginninderry is one of the first developments in the ACT to look to achieve a ‘whole’ solution. This means rather than focusing on one important element such as sustainability, community or affordability, Ginninderry aims to excel in all these equally important areas. This makes it an exciting project that we are thrilled to be a part of.
Why did you want to be involved in this development?
Ginninderry is a vision for the future and demonstrates what all new developments should be aiming to achieve; a diverse range of lifestyle options in a fantastic location with a conscious vision for the future. Captured in this vision is the project’s commitment to sustainability, community and liveability, which has Rawson Homes particularly excited to be a part of the team.
What do you love about working in construction?
I love being part of a ‘hopes and dreams’ business.
How many professionals in other industries can say they played a role in turning someone’s dreams into a reality?
Building a new home is a major lifetime event. Being entrusted to partner with someone on their journey and delivering on their needs is a humbling and rewarding experience.
Knowing when I get out of bed every day to come to work that we are making a real difference to people’s lives is a pretty incredible feeling!
