Our Storey – How we became perth's leading two storey builder

Posted August 26, 2015

When it comes to Perth home builders, there’s no lack of choices. It’s hard to distinguish yourself as special in a sea of faces – especially when they’re all busy shouting out the same message time and again. We’re not going to do that, though. Instead we’re going to show you exactly why we’re so different – and why we want to work with you to build you your new home.

Lino Antonelli, our current managing director, founded the company in 1993. We’ve remained a family business ever since, and Lino has so much experience in the industry –considering he started in the 1970s as an apprentice tiller – he practically lives and breathes construction.

If there’s one thing that Lino has learned, teamwork is key. He’s built this company to encourage a positive work environment that creates job satisfaction and rewards effort. He’s always wanted Novus to be the kind of place where team members can’t wait to come to work instead of dreading it.

It’s worked extremely well. Many of our team members – including our tradespeople – have been with Novus for more than a decade. The pride in their work comes through in everything they do, with many of us being registered builders or have building diplomas themselves. Our reputation is so important to us, and we’ve done everything we can to provide exemplary and transparent approaches to our customer service. The success of this approach is apparent in our referral and repeat business.

It’s not just personalized customer service where we excel. You need exceptional communication skills in the building industry, and we strive to understand your needs completely before building you the home of your dreams for you and your family. Our Building and Design consultants will work with you hand in hand to provide you the best value and design; these highly experienced consultants are supported by not just a showroom but a dedicated design team to fit your home out with the perfect finishing touches.

Our building materials are only of the finest quality; Lino wouldn’t have it any other way. We use only the best building practices, and our attention to quality is what earns us MBA and HIA industry awards time and again. Every single one of our homes gets Lino’s personal touch, as he inspects each one to ensure it meets his high standards.
