Our Story.

Our story is simple, we are builders and engineers who had been living with our families in poorly constructed homes that continuously wasted energy. We decided to start our business to make very simple changes to a home’s construction, which make a significant difference in energy performance and its internal comfort. The houses we build perform excellently for our clients current and future needs. Throughout the development of our business, we have found one of our main strengths is communication. The feedback we have received is that there is a big difference with the way we communicate. We are open and transparent with our clients from the beginning and it is always enjoyable when we have aligned aspirations to make a positive difference to a home’s performance whiles reducing our environmental impact.

Our Guilding
Principles.

  • Design Excellence

    Before we begin designing your home, we will arrange an introductory informal catch up to understand the design aspirations and answer any questions you may have.
  • Sustainability

    Our design team are accredited passive house designers with a passion for sustainability. We focus on making all our projects both functional and sustainable.
  • Construction

    Our construction team has over 40 years' experience in residential and commercial construction, so we know how to deliver projects efficiently to the highest standards.
  • Communication

    We believe excellent communication is key in construction. We keep our clients informed throughout the design and construction process and will organise regular site visit so you can be involved in every stage of your project.
  • Energy efficiency

    We believe in building for our future and extensive quality control. We will ensure every project has an efficient building envelope, so energy is not wasted.
  • Innovation

    We monitor all new sustainable technologies and construction methods to ensure we can advise our clients of the newest innovations.

Construction here in Perth is already achieving high standards and this is due to the level of trades that are available. Our goal at Carbon Homes is to enhance the already existing skills set with tried and tested European practices and innovative technologies to achieve a high end performing product.

Our team keep up to date with new and innovative building technologies and ensure that these are incorporated into your home design providing the edge on standard homes.

We understand how singular, locally sourced and traditional building materials such as ‘double Brick’ can be used in conjunction with one another to produce a high performing building envelope.

We believe in the principles of being a considerate contractor as all parties affected directly or indirectly by the process can have a positive impact on the end result.

The reward for me is realisation from the client after they have been living in their new home for a short while how much their internal living environment has improved for their family.

Quality Control.

We ensure we achieve our major principles through strict Quality Management Systems (QMS). As the pace of the building process increases so does the requirement of quality control, our rigorous QMS inspections are proven to reduce defects in sustainable design projects that are under construction.

Quality Control is a key part of the Carbon Homes process to ensure we achieve our high standards from concept to completion.

  • Improve build and finish quality
  • Reduce cost of any remedial works
  • Improve consistency
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Strict management of Sub-Contractors
  • Reduce fixed costs
