Im­pressed by ev­ery as­pect

Builder Dar­ryl Klei­don has al­ways built his fam­ily home but had to trust Hal­cyon’s ap­proach

HAV­ING built close to 500 homes in the past 40 years, vet­eran builder Dar­ryl Klei­don’s only reser­va­tion about mov­ing to over 50s com­mu­nity Hal­cyon Greens was not be­ing able to con­struct his new home him­self.

As the owner of his own build­ing com­pany it was nat­u­ral that, in ad­di­tion to his con­trac­tual work, he had al­ways built his fam­ily’s homes.

But this time, for the first time, he had to put his trust in an­other builder – over 50s life­style de­vel­oper Hal­cyon.

“That was the hard thing here, me not build­ing this my­self, con­sid­er­ing this is the first house we’ve been in that we haven’t built our­selves,” Mr Klei­don, pic­tured with wife Clo­rien, said. “I had that gut feel­ing that Hal­cyon are good at what they do, and it turned out to be the way.”

Mr Klei­don said he was im­pressed by ev­ery as­pect of Hal­cyon’s ap­proach to the con­struc­tion process. “The homes have good de­sign and I liked all the con­struc­tion meth­ods like the Hebel and the in­su­la­tion. It’s what I would have done if I had built it my­self. The ser­vice was as good as we ex­pected from the first meet­ing we had with Hal­cyon, be­cause we fol­low much of the same process with our build­ing projects,” he said.

Hal­cyon Greens is tak­ing shape on an is­land par­cel at Pim­pama.
