Australia’s most successful franchised residential home builder, G.J. Gardner Homes, is amongst the nation’s top 10 largest new home builders for the first time in 2011/12, according to the latest HIACOLORBOND® steel Housing 100 Report.
The HIA report, which ranks the nation’s largest 100 residential builders based on the number of homes started each year, found that G.J. Gardner Homes started 1,171 new homes in 2011/12, all of which were detached houses.
This makes G.J. Gardner the seventh largest new homebuilder – up from eighth last year, and the first time it has been ranked in the top 10 even if high-rise apartments are included.
International CEO, Darren Wallis, was elated at the result. “To improve our HIA ranking in an incredibly tough year for the residential housing industry is an outstanding result for our business,” Wallis said.
“We’re also the only builder in the top 10 who also builds new homes in the USA and New Zealand. If those figures were to be included in these rankings, we’d be even higher on the list. This shows we’re well on our way to our long-term vision of being the number one home builder in the world by 2025.”
G.J. Gardner Homes is Australia’s most successful homebuilder, with an international network of more than 110 franchises and an annual turnover in excess of $500 million.
