One of Australia’s largest privately-owned construction companies, Built is known for the bright orange branding you’ve no doubt seen on hoarding at a number of iconic locations.
With an estimated annual revenue of $1.5 billion, Built’s pipeline includes four towers in Western Sydney’s Parramatta Square and Melbourne Airport’s first hotel in twenty years.
50% of the company’s work is refurbishments and refits. Built has revitalised some of Australia’s best known buildings, including Flinders Street Station and the ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park, Sydney.
Established in 1998, Built has grown over its 21 years into a Tier-1, diversified general contractor with over 1,000 employees across Australia and New Zealand.
Built specialises in joint ventures, delivering projects across all major property sectors including residential, hotels, hospitality, retail, commercial office, health and aged care, education, government and transport.
Director and General Manager for Victoria and SA, Ross Walker, assumed the role in 2018 following the departures of Dean Lockhart, Nathan Theos and Shayne Young.
Jen Marks has returned from maternity leave and is back running Built's Refurbishment & Fit Out arm, having taken over from Guy Finnes who is now General Manager of Total Construction.
Consistently delivering high-quality projects means Built’s work does not go unnoticed.
The company’s refurbishment of St Kilda’s Palais Theatre has been awarded a number of accolades, cementing Built as a key player in the sector for complex heritage restoration.
The project included the removal of 70 years of nicotine build-up in the theatre’s dome, with Built having the added difficulty of navigating work around the venue’s full performance schedule.
The project was also instrumental in landing another two Melbourne landmarks: the State Library of Victoria and Flinders Street Station.
The Walker Company’s Parramatta Square project in Western Sydney is another landmark project for Built, who will work in a joint venture with Japanese Obayashi Corporation to deliver towers 6 and 8 of the CBD rejuvenation project.
A $3.2 billion addition to the pipeline, towers 6 and 8 will adjoin existing 4 Parramatta Square, rising 55 storeys to become the tallest building in Western Sydney and the second tallest office tower in NSW.
The buildings are set to comprise 124,000 square metres of office space, becoming the largest commercial building in Australia by net lettable area.
Property NSW is committed as the anchor tenant, occupying 43,800 square metres for 4,000 NSW Government workers.
