Why choose Kennett?

Our experience and success

Established in 1914, we have over 100 years of experience as a fourth generation builder, with a host of awards and happy clients to our name. We’ve earned an enviable reputation for our focus on finding solutions and delivering excellence, resulting in multiple state and national awards from the Master Builders Association, including the prestigious title of Master Builder of the Year (Commercial – 2014 and 2008).

The depth and breadth of our team

Our team of qualified and experienced commercial construction specialists, including project managers, construction and site managers and estimators, work together to tailor a construction approach for each client.  We have 50 construction specialists and a register of 1000 subcontractors, ensuring we can draw on the best in the business.

Our bespoke approach

We focus on building relationships with clients to truly understand each project’s requirements and function. If it’s in an existing suburb or centre, we think about how construction activity may affect a client’s operations and those of neighbouring businesses. Our committment to understanding each client’s operational and project requirements leads to solid partnerships with clients, architects and building consultants and results that exceed their expectations.

Our commitment to continually improving

Our process of reviewing and refining our approach and methodologies ensures successes and learnings from past projects are incorporated into future work.  We review and refine our methodologies to develop a construction plan considering the specific needs of each client and the site to deliver our projects on time and on budget.

“I regard this project as a standout success. I was struck by the professional environment established from the very beginning, the tidiness of the site and the disciplined commitment to safety. Kennett always acted in Resthaven’s best interests.”
