Total Solution

Built has the scale and agility to offer our clients a total solution across construction, fitout and refurbishment, development and small works across all sectors.

Our diverse capabilities ensure our clients work with people with the right expertise for their project, regardless of the discipline, size or complexity. From de-risking the construction of a challenging large-scale project to delivering a complex live environment fitout and refurbishment, our focus is to consistently deliver to the same high quality outcome.

Total Solution

Construction requires a strong focus on operational discipline, technical expertise, commercial outcome, and risk mitigation. But it also takes a flexible mindset to push boundaries, find better answers and pioneer new techniques to stay ahead of change. We partner with our clients to understand and invest in your vision and use our design and delivery capabilities to bring it to fruition across all delivery methods and major asset classes. Our team includes some of the most talented and respected people in the industry, while our strong relationships with the best subcontractors and suppliers allow us to deliver high quality outcomes for our clients and their end users.

Our business was founded on delivering high specification bespoke fitouts to tight timeframes, for many of the world’s luxury brands and top tier companies. What has always set us apart is our culture which drives our high standards and attention to every detail and finish. Valuing relationships, focusing on front-end processes and staying close to tenants and end users is an approach we have embedded across our business and provides the certainty to our clients that makes us a trusted long term partner.

Refurbishment demands a proven ability to unlock complex problems, innovate and adapt, and meet the challenges of working in live environments. Refurbishment projects combine all our construction and fitout skills with the complex environments we thrive in. They are an opportunity to partner early with our clients and provide strategic solutions that can be the difference between a viable refurbishment over a demolition and re-build.

We specialise in working with public and private partners to identify unseen opportunities and unlock asset value. Our experience across development, complex construction and refurbishment allows us to devise smart, pioneering development schemes. While our strong relationships with development participants from planners, financiers, architects to agents allows us to provide an end to end solution. Our team’s collective experience in developments, coupled with our smart thinking and deep knowledge of the Australian property sector, makes Built a standout development partner.

Our Small Works team offers our clients a more agile and personal response with the scale and certainty advantages of the wider Built group. With dedicated small works professionals across the country, we offer flexible end-to-end solutions for projects in any sector from $5,000 to $10 million. Renowned for our superior service, quality and dependability, we solve every client problem no matter how big or small.

An alternative major construction partner

 

In 2016, Built signed a strategic partnership with one of Japan’s largest construction groups, Obayashi Corporation, to work together on select large-scale construction opportunities in Australia.

The agreement combines the construction skills and financial strengths of both organisations and fosters collaboration through Obayashi’s Technical Research Institute, a facility dedicated to the development of construction-related technologies.

Safety always.
No exceptions.

Built is improving safety outcomes through embedding shared values and behaviours across our people and the diverse range of subcontractors we engage. This is how we continue to find and deliver on safer ways of working.

Our safety vision is clear: make it safe; make it personal; make it simple. To achieve this, our strategy targets critical risks and is underpinned by fit for purpose processes to ensure we achieve consistent behaviours in our staff and subcontractors.

Built has created a unique framework of behaviour developed in collaboration with our subcontractors that ensures everyone is treated equally and with respect. This makes safety personal and creates an environment where everyone takes greater responsibility for the safety of their colleagues.

Making safety personal for everyone is the best way to ensure risks are identified, managed and mitigated – not just as a one-off exercise, but as part of our day to day business. We bring our staff and subcontractors together before every project starts to set an agreed framework of behaviour and make safety a personal commitment.

Our Occupational Health and Safety System is certified to AS/NZS 4801.2001 and ISO 45001.2018 and we are an accredited builder with the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner.
