The Aston Homes Difference: Our Team On The Tools
At Aston Homes, many clients are thrilled to learn that our company leadership team is made up of builders and qualified tradespeople. This means that when you build with us, you’re working with experienced professionals who hold a depth of technical knowledge in the construction industry. Today’s blog provides some insight on two members of our leadership team, and why they love what they do. Read on!
Director – Vic
Aston Homes’ Director Vic started his career in the building industry and worked for volume builders for over thirteen years. It was there that he observed that there was a gap in the market.
“Before we started Aston, I had met so many disgruntled customers, they were tired of being treated like a number. I wanted to change this stigma within industry.”
Over the course of his career, Vic noted that disappointment and stress caused by unexpected costs and delays had become an accepted part of the building process. This is why Vic affirms why Aston Homes views open communication as critical.
“Before we begin constructing a new home, our clients sit down with their building supervisor over a coffee to get better acquainted. Yes, building a home is financial commitment for them, but it’s also an emotional commitment too.”
At Aston Homes, our leadership team know that our clients have done their due diligence when researching and we know that they’re able to see beyond impressive brochures and flashy advertising. Our core values of trust and respect underpin our daily operations, meaning we deliver a trustworthy, genuine alternative within the industry.
Director – Steve
Aston Homes’ Director Steve Lautier has been in love with building since he was a tot! Tinkering with anything he could get his hands on as a young man, his qualification as a cabinet maker led him to work in the field for 25 years before the launch of Aston Homes. Steve’s day to day role see’s him head the Construction division, overseeing the drafting department and site supervisors. His insight and experience plays an integral part in ensuring the separate divisions run cohesively. For Steve, it’s a combination of forward-planning and solving problems before they occur. To ensure the highest quality workmanship is achieved, Steve ensures that only reliable trades are sourced and that the Aston Homes team conduct a number of quality assurance inspections throughout each build.
“Aston Homes also engage a third-party building inspector to give the all clear on every home – guaranteeing a predictable level of quality for every build”.
The Aston Homes team collectively has a wealth of experience across Melbourne’s outer-north and west – builders first, business people second.
