Various academic achievements at TAFE and UNIVERSITY combined with a practical knowledge of building lead to many opportunities in the Building Industry prior to creating ARMISTEAD HOMES.
Starting in 1985 working with a Carpenter lead to studying building at school and working for a small residential builder, gaining practical knowledge and honing the practical skills needed for building quality homes. The combination of practical and academic experience eventually lead to becoming PROJECT MANAGER with AUSTRALAND, one of Australia’s largest residential builders and developers. Managing the construction of many homes and apartments including Multi Unit Apartment Complexes and Medium Density Housing Developments. One of which won “BEST MEDIUM DENSITY DEVELOPMENT” by The Urban Development Institute of Australia.

Commercial construction experience gained from working with AUSTRALAND, lead to an onsite role with MERKON, one of Melbourne’s most reputable commercial building companies before, in 2002,  relocating to the SURF COAST to a position as Construction Manager with THE NICOL GROUP, a family owned commercial building company. Managing the construction of millions of dollars worth of commercial projects ranging from Athletics Centres, Function Centres and Sporting Clubs to Restaurants, Public Swimming Pools and Kindergartens.
