In­no­va­tion is at the heart of the busines

Whitsunday Times - - FEATURE -

IN­NO­VA­TION has al­ways been at the heart of how Cliff and Freya Hill run their busi­ness and they cer­tainly in­tend to keep in­no­vat­ing.

"Adapt or die," Mr Hill said in his straight­for­ward way.

"We have been around a long time but that's only be­cause we keep ahead of build­ing trends and cus­tomer de­mands. We sold three houses in one week in Fe­bru­ary - we must be do­ing some­thing right."

Mr Hill said Colony Build­ing Group was about to launch a new range of ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed homes.

The pre­mium range is "un­der wraps" at the mo­ment but an an­nounce­ment is com­ing soon.

The com­pany has also just re-de­signed its com­plete range of homes to keep up with cus­tomer feed­back, and is bring­ing in plenty of new fit­tings such as tiles, taps and bath­room ac­ces­sories so cus­tomers can per­son­alise their homes.

"I think the im­por­tant thing is to lis­ten," Mrs Hill adds, who loves the side of the busi­ness that al­lows her to con­sult with clients on fin­ishes.

In line with its mantra of stay­ing ahead of the game, Colony Build­ing Group has just re­designed its logo, re­launched its web­site and re­done all of its sig­nage along the high­way.

With the new pre­mium range of archi- tect-de­signed homes launch­ing soon and Stage 2a of Whit­sun­day Acres be­ing planned, the busi­ness is well po­si­tioned for the next surge of de­mand.

"We are con­tin­u­ally in­vest­ing in our busi­ness with the aim of im­prov­ing it in ev­ery way," Mr Hill said. "In­no­va­tion is a word that is used of­ten nowa­days but true in­no­va­tion takes pa­tience, per­sis­tence and plan­ning - and we cer­tainly in­tend be­ing here for the long haul."
