Build­ing company looks to the fu­ture

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

WITH 20 years suc­cess­fully un­der their belt, Can­non Val­ley’s Cum­ber­land Con­struc­tions are now look­ing for­ward to the next 20 years.

The company pride them­selves on their fash­ion­able and em­i­nent de­signs that have won them over 25 awards since start­ing business in 1994.

Cum­ber­land Con­struc­tions coowner Ker­rie Jo­han­nesen said the company’s plan is to grow with the com­mu­nity.

“We’re lo­cals sup­port­ing lo­cals – we’ll only ever source from lo­cal builders and lo­cal sub­con­trac­tors,” she said. They be­lieve their word of mouth rep­u­ta­tion is a driv­ing force be­hind their 20 years of suc­cess­ful business and want to wel­come new ar­rivals to town.

“The Whit­sun­days is get­ting more and more tran­sient and we al­ways have new faces to ad­dress,” she said.

Mrs Jo­han­nesen is pay­ing par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the company’s Face­book page where cus­tomers have the chance to see lo­cal hap­pen­ings in the area, see re­cent con­struc­tions and get to know the staff. She re­cently launched “Tradie Tues­days” where she will post a photo of Cum­ber­land Con­struc­tions trades­men ev­ery Tues­day to amuse fol­low­ers, which Mrs Jo­han­nesen said had been very popular.

“We’ve reached over 1200 peo­ple with th­ese posts. I think cus­tomers are en­joy­ing see­ing us high­light lo- cal work­ers,” she said. Co-owner Ray Jo­han­nesen said he will con­tinue to work on-site as of­ten as pos­si­ble. “It’s im­por­tant to me that peo­ple don’t as­sume just be­cause I’m an owner, I sit be­hind a desk and boss peo­ple around - I’m out there. I’m get­ting my hands dirty and that’s the best way to en­sure a client is more than sat­is­fied with their home,” he said. They aim to sur­pass their clients’ ex­pec­ta­tions with ap­plied per­fec­tion­ism, mak­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of build­ing one of trou­ble free sat­is­fac­tion, fin­ish­ing projects on or ahead of time, and within agreed fixed bud­gets.
