About Us

Horizon Habitats - About Us Horizon Habitats Pty Limited was established in 1989 and since then has built an enviable name as one of Sydney's most reputable builders. We are a small but extremely professional firm that specialises in high quality architecturally designed new homes and alterations and additions, in some of the most prestigious suburbs of Sydney.

We pride ourselves on offering the highest levels of service & professionalism, which continually enable us to deliver projects that exceed our clients' expectations of time, cost & quality. We believe that a team approach always produces the best results; through working closely with our clients & designers as well as our staff, subcontractors, & suppliers - forging a strong relationship between all parties, some of which have lasted more than 20 years.

Together with our own team of more than 60 fulltime staff in the office & on site, coupled with a tight network of loyal subcontractors and suppliers, we have the combined experience, expertise, & ability in order to tackle any challenge and come out with the right result at the end. Difficult access, complicated structural requirements, & highly detailed finishes are our bread & butter!

The Horizon Habitats management structure allows us to both administrate projects extremely efficiently, but still provide the on-site attention to detail that our clients demand. We firmly believe that even on larger projects, it's still the little things that count. We have developed a solid, robust business, based on good financial management principles.

We don’t just build great houses, but also run a sound building business. In these difficult financial times, it’s just as important to manage cashflow as it is to build houses that look great and don’t leak. We also operate a financial job-forecasting system in order to properly track all our jobs, and report at the touch of a button the financial status of any project. So you know we’ll be in business not just for the duration of your project, but for years after as well.

Horizon Habitats has embraced the use of technology available to us, with many high-tech systems in place as part of our overall quality assurance system to ensure that we are as efficient or effective as possible; whether that be to get tenders out, estimate our own side of projects, iPhones and iPads on all our sites, or manage a project’s electronic documents so that the entire project team is working from the latest set of drawings and immediately notified of an update.

We take pride in our work, and enjoy working together with our clients to build their homes. We do not advertise, rather we rely on our clients to give us repeat and referral business.

We have an outstanding Safety record, and take the health, safety and education & training of our staff as our highest priority. We are continually trying to improve on our skills and knowledge base.

We believe the finished Quality of our projects, our Attention to Detail and Level of Service are second-to-none, along with a proven track record of delivery - on time and on budget. Call our office and take the first step to making your next building project a great success and more importantly, a positive experience!
