Our Story

Building a new home is a major investment and selecting the correct builder will be one of the most important decisions you make.

Let’s face it, there are plenty of home builders in Perth to choose from. Instead of shouting out the same old messages, we would like to share our story with you. So please take a moment to learn more about us. We would welcome the opportunity to work with you.

Lino Antonelli

We are a family business. The company was formed by Managing Director Lino Antonelli in 1993.

Lino lives and breathes building. He has been in the industry for longer than he cares to admit, originally starting out as an apprentice tiler back in the 70’s. With a relentless attention to detail he set about gaining his Building License ensuring his high standards would be reflected across the entire home build.

Lino has worked hard to create an environment that fosters teamwork, rewards effort, creates job satisfaction and is ultimately a place where people enjoy coming to work.

Many of the team at Novus, including our trades people, have been with the company for more than 10 years and take great pride in their work.

A number of staff are registered builders, or hold diplomas in building in their own right. This gives us exceptional stability and demonstrates our ongoing commitment as to what we stand for – building homes we can all be proud of.

Our reputation means everything to us and over the years we have become well known for our transparent approach to customer service. Our repeat and referral business are testimony to this.

Personalised customer service is only one part of the equation. We value your input, we listen and we interpret. We believe that the building process relies on exceptional communication. We aim to completely understand your needs, and from there we can build you a functional and stylish home that you can enjoy with family and friends for years to come.

Our highly experienced Design and Building consultants work with you to ensure we achieve the best possible design and value outcome. They are supported by a dedicated design team and a showroom to make selecting your finishing touches easy. We can modify designs from our extensive range or create your very own architectural dream home from a design brief.

Lino ensures that we use only the finest quality materials in all of the homes that we build and that the best building practices are employed throughout construction. This is demonstrated by us taking out HIA and MBA industry awards year after year.

Prior to completion Lino’s hands on approach is demonstrated by his personal inspection of every building site to ensure it meets his high standards.

This is the level of service that only a totally committed builder can offer and is one of the many reasons we hope you will get in touch and let us show you why we genuinely are different to other builders in Perth.
