About G.J. Gardner Homes Fyshwick

We build on excellence, in everything, everyday

Desire a custom-built home in the nation’s capital? Require the services of a quality builder with flair and imagination? Then quit looking at countless display homes Canberra and contact the professional team at G.J. Gardner Homes in the Australian Capital Territory (A.C.T.).

The G.J. Gardner Homes franchise in the A.C.T. is renowned for its exceptional customer service, quality workmanship and cutting-edge design. It specialises in custom-designed homes, knockdown-rebuilds and display homes Canberra. The franchise owners, David and Suzanne Norman, are people you can trust. David has worked as a successful builder for over 30 years, whilst Suzanne comes from a people-centric background in the health sector. They’re great advocates of the Territory lifestyle, which blends the convenience of a city with the friendly atmosphere of a country town.

The A.C.T. covers an area of 2,358 square kilometres and is home to Canberra – the capital city of Australia. Canberra is a thriving city with first-class facilities, clean air and a well-educated workforce (many Canberrans work in the Australian Public Service). The city has many famous landmarks and monuments, including Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial, Lake Burley Griffin, the National Library, Questacon, the High Court, and the National Gallery of Australia. The climate in the A.C.T. is generally hot in summer and very cold in winter – a reason why many G.J. Gardner display homes Canberra have heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

To the south-west of Canberra lies Namadgi National Park, which represents 46 per cent of the A.C.T.'s land area. Namadgi National Park is popular with bushwalkers, campers, birdwatchers, horse riders, mountain bikers and cross-country skiers (in the winter). It features 160 kilometres of marked walking tracks, along with many examples of Aboriginal rock art. In winter, snow falls on the Park’s highest peak, Mount Bimberi (1,913 metres), which is part of the Brindabella Ranges. Although there isn’t a Canberra display village near the Namadgi National Park, G.J. Gardner Homes has been building quality homes in the southern suburbs of Canberra for many years.

About Us

For our team, it is about building the dream home every time

David Norman

Managing Director

Bringing with him over 30 years experience in the building industry, David Norman’s dream of establishing the G.J. Gardner Homes franchise here in Canberra over 7 years ago has now been realised. In this time, David, along with his wife Suzanne, have grown the Company from its infancy into achieving the excellent reputation it enjoys today: one which prides itself on designing and building beautiful, individualised new homes of exceptional quality and value.

David understands that when clients choose to build their dream home with him, it is often one of the biggest investments they make. Throughout the years, he has always aimed to provide honest, upfront and accurate information together with great service. Taking a ‘hands-on’ role in the business, David makes sure he is available for consultation at every step of his clients’ journey.

A third generation builder, his experience has afforded him detailed knowledge in all facets of residential construction in Canberra and surrounding NSW areas, including rural acreages. With two grown-up children also working and studying in Canberra, he loves all Canberra has to offer, and enjoys hitting the cycleways and bushwalking in his spare time.

Michael Evans

Michael has been with our team here in Fyshwick for over a year, bringing with him a wealth of experience in the Residential Construction Industry. Having spent his working life as a carpenter, builder and site supervisor, his love for building began at an early age, when he worked as an Apprentice alongside his father, who is also a Master Builder.

Mick approaches his role as Construction Supervisor with enthusiasm, diligence and the upmost commitment to quality. Being easily approachable, he values open and regular communication with clients and provides site inspections at every stage of the build. The highlight of his job is handing over a new GJ home that he is personally proud of, and that has been completed to schedule.
