Springate Constructions is a builder that has already made its mark on Western Australia. Based in picturesque Dunsborough, along the south west coast of Australia, Springate Constructions specializes in high-end, multimillion dollar residential houses, and has won multiple awards for their excellence in both quality of product and innovative, original design.
The company was founded in 2006 by industry veteran Jason Springate. Since moving from the United Kingdom to Western Australia 17 years ago, Jason has managed over $150 million worth of commercial and residential construction projects.
As a company, Springate specialises in new builds as well as renovations, refurbishments and additions of all sizes and complexities.
Jason’s 26 years of combined academic and construction experience helps set Springate apart when it comes to their new, custom built homes – an arena in which the company has proudly built a strong reputation. Jason’s insight into the art and science of building high-end residences has been honed over countless projects, so whether he is building a full time residence or a holiday home, he and his team know how to make dream homes become realities.
With an honours degree in Building Surveying and a background in Engineering, Jason is also able to ascertain the viability of renovating an existing property, or assist in purchasing a property with the goal of renovating.
“With my experience in both building and surveying, I can provide clients with an accurate picture of the time and costs involved, as well as the structural viability of the works they are looking at under taking,” Jason says. “Our goal here at Springate Constructions is to offer a professional and cost effective service that builds property value and provides peace of mind for our clients.”
Over his many years in the industry, Jason has also learned the value of strong customer service – which is another point of difference that Springate Constructions is proud of.
With every project, Springate Construction provides their clients with weekly updates during the building process. Every aspect of the design and construction of a new home – or a renovation – is both carefully planned and executed with the client’s involvement. The team at Springate strives to not only make the process a pleasurable experience for customers, but an enjoyable one as well.
“We offer a personalised service,” Jason says. “We work closely with our clients to make sure every detail is right. We spend time talking them through all aspects of the building to make sure they are happy with every decision made.”
“We really strive to make the process enjoyable,” he adds. “We look after clients, keep them informed and get the design right the first time.”
Tried and tested teams
When it comes to the quality of Springate’s product, Jason also gives a lot of the credit to the skill of their subcontractors and tradespeople, all of whom maintain close relationships with the company.
“We want to make sure that the quality contractors we use are reaping the reward of continuous work,” Jason says. “We want to maintain good relationships with them.”
Jason’s team also works closely with leading designers, architects, engineers, and specialised service consultants. Their strong partnerships with those professionals allow Springate Constructions to create innovative designs that meet the needs and desires of their clients, and allows them to implement those designs in both a time and cost effective manner.
By forming relationships with their partners early on – and then strengthening them over time – Springate Constructions has been able to deliver the exceptional quality that clients have come to expect, and that the industry has come to recognise.
Award winning quality
The quality of Springate Constructions product and service has been repeatedly recognised by the industry, and particularly by the Master Builders Association. In the last three years, the company’s list of accolades has grown exponentially, and includes prizes for Best New Builder, Excellence in Building Practice, a Judges Innovation Award, and multiple Best Contract Home in the South West wins for projects in several multimillion dollar categories.
“The Master Builders Association is a long-standing, very highly recognized organization which the public uses as a reference to recognise quality,” Jason says. “If you’re a highly decorated award-winning builder recognized by the MBA and constantly winning awards, the public recognises that.”
“Clients can see that there’s an independent body that has critiqued our work, and has judged us to be one of the best around.”
One of Springate Constructions’ recent homes – which won the 2012 MBA award for Best Contract Home South West – was a complex job valued at over $3 million. The home stretches a thousand square meters, and Jason describes it as “almost resort like.”
“It’s got a lot of engineering and the sort of detail you wouldn’t normally see in a residential home,” he says. “There’s a great deal of uncommon materials – rock, steel, polished concrete – and the finishes and attention to detail are especially high-end. The sheer magnitude of the estate really makes us proud of the finished product.”
That project represented an industry benchmark for quality and attention to detail – one that Jason says Springate Constructions will continue to meet moving forward. As a small, boutique builder, the goal for Springate is not to be the largest company on the market – the goal is to provide high-end homes to satisfied clients.
“We’re continuing along the same line we have for the last few years,” Jason says. “We’re providing clients with a great service, and beautiful quality homes that we can be proud of.”
