Perth Custom Home Builder Proves Construction Is Not Always A ‘Man’s World’ as She ‘Builds Homes – not Houses’ for Clients
PERTH, Australia June, 2013 – There was a time when construction sites were a ‘man’s world’ so to speak. The architects, engineers, and builders were all men – including the owners of the construction company. But there is one woman who is shaking things up in the construction industry. After growing up on building sites while watching her builder father work, Perth custom home builder Kim March is now bringing a woman’s touch to her role as the owner of her own construction company, David Reid Homes Perth. In fact, Kim is known as the ‘Mother’ of the building industry amongst her peers and colleagues. Kim brings a wealth of experience to this once male dominated world, and combines it with her nurturing nature for a building experience beyond expectations – a result that captures the heart of the men and women building their dream home and brings that dream to life.
“I was pretty much born on a construction site,” says Kim. “My father was a builder in his own right so I grew up around the industry. However, as a woman, I wasn’t instantly accepted in the industry. In my earlier days, I had to fight for and earn the respect that I deserved on the job site. I even had tradesmen asking me where my father was. I would have to tell them ‘You are not dealing with my father, you are dealing with me!’” www.davidreidhomesperth.com.au/
“From a building perspective, the industry remains a man’s world, but the advantage is that from my clients’ perspectives, David Reid Homes Perth is very much a woman’s world. When people think about what a home means, in order to appreciate what is important from that perspective, it is really important to have a woman’s point of view,” says Kim.
One of the trends that this Perth custom home builder has noticed in what their clients are looking for is that they want the luxury, but understandably they need it within budget. “Value for money is a big issue right now,” says Kim. “Absolute service is the other. They are looking for both, but they are looking for communication above all else.
Our goal as a building company, by clever design, is to stay within the budget. There is no point in designing something and then not building it because we have gone over budget, it is that simple.” www.davidreidhomesperth.com.au/
The Perth custom home builder continues, “We operate as what I would call a luxury boutique building company, we take the client right from the initial design through to the planning, all the documentation, engineering, drawing, to all the council requirements. We take all those steps away from them. What we want is to take all the difficulty out of the process and be able to hand our clients a beautiful home!”
“We hand over the homes totally completed and to see the home like that is just great. You want to take hundreds of photos. You follow the home from the inception – from the first meeting, and then getting it onto paper, all the way through to having the product at the end – it is just an amazing experience! This experience is something that we hope to share with every client, and show them that building with David Reid Homes Perth they aren’t just getting a house, they are getting a home!” the Perth custom home builder exclaims.
