Two and a half years ago leading Australian construction company Probuild set to make a quantum shift in its production outputs and waste reduction. As part of this shift, it strived to eliminate inefficient process, optimise production speeds and reduce rework.
Probuild says, this is because they understand that particularly in the residential product line, settlement risks and body corporate call backs are at the highest level of concerns to its clients, financiers and ultimately, apartment buyers.
So in 2015, the company set a target of no more than two purchaser defects per apartment. Given that most apartments are handed over with three, four, five times this amount of purchaser defects, that number was particularly ambitious.
EZ Australia magazine observes that at the conclusion of more than 2000 apartments, handed over at recent residential high-rise projects Avant, Empire Melbourne, Marina Tower and Victoria One, Probuild achieved a staggering average purchaser defect of less than one per apartment.
The company has proudly achieved this through a cultural shift, supported by the implementation of robust systems and handover processes that make up the Probuild Construction System (PCS).
“Quality buildings don’t just happen and Probuild is on a continual mission to achieve zero purchaser defects. We do this by getting the best out of our supply chain to deliver and de-risk a total end-to-end solution – on site. You can’t outsource production challenges.
“We believe in getting the job done right, after all, can you afford it any other way?” – Luke Stambolis
Probuild’s happy clients at these projects include: Golden Age Group, World Class Global, Mammoth Empire and Hiap Hoe. The company said they would like to thank these developers for giving them for the opportunity to deliver you such premium quality buildings.
“Our Project Management partners at these projects have also been a fantastic support,” said Mr Stambolis.
“Sinclair Brook, Time and Place, PDS Group and KIN Property have all been great to work with.”
