A HUS­BAND and wife build­ing com­pany pro­duc­ing 35 homes a year now has an­other ac­co­lade to its name.

Re­becca and An­gelo Rossi have built Ul­timo Con­struc­tions from a team of two to six in about nine years and this month won the top gong at the Stir­ling Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion’s an­nual awards.

“It was very over­whelm­ing; didn’t ex­pect it at all,” Re­becca said be­fore telling the Times what she thought caught the judges’ eye. “I think our over­all un­der­stand­ing of dif­fer­ent as­pects of run­ning a busi­ness: our sys­tems, pro­cesses, mar­ket­ing and look­ing af­ter our peo­ple, our team.”

The cou­ple, who spe­cialise in du­plex and triplex sites and cus­tom-built homes, started Ul­timo from a home of­fice be­fore mov­ing to their own premises in Bal­catta.

Win­ning the pro­fes­sional builder cat­e­gory for WA in 2017 is just one of sev­eral awards they have re­ceived from the Hous­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion.

“We’ve been able to grow in a down­time; we’ve pulled through and suc­ceeded so far,” Re­becca said. “The year ahead looks good.”

She put the suc­cess down to “our high-per­for­mance team”, “good cus­tomer ser­vice” and re­fer­rals.

“We pride our­selves on de­liv­er­ing a per­son­alised and pre­mium ser­vice,” she said.

They use 50 to 100 sub­con­trac­tors to sup­port their work.
