“Building for the Future”
There is an unyielding mantra at Mondo Exclusive Homes; get excited, get involved, get results. Established by Ray Kershaw in Perth nearly six years ago, he began the company as what he described to be a “one man show”. Mr Kershaw, who was originally a carpenter by trade, worked exceedingly hard to accelerate growth, and now has an office location with several employees on staff. Mondo has also been increasing its overall turnover year by year.
Mondo Exclusive Homes pride themselves on focusing on specific client needs from start to finish when engaging in new projects. This approach allows Mondo’s clientele to focus on flexibility and choice. In this regard, they can be viewed as a “one stop shop” expressed by Director Ray Kershaw. Mondo can offer expertise in the construction of high quality single and double storey homes. They ensure that the client is actively involved throughout the full duration of the project cycle, allowing for not only design to construct accuracy, but last minute customizations as well. This helps to guarantee client satisfaction in the build, coupled with hitting established budgets.
Environmental sustainability is also a key focus and imperative practise at Mondo. By limiting the amount of projects they take on per annum, Mondo enables themselves to supervise project sites more thoroughly, giving a “hands on feel to the project” says Mr Kershaw. This diligent approach allows Mondo to limit the amount of waste, both produced and left over from a given project, thus reducing their overall impact on the environment throughout a project lifecycle.
Mondo Exclusive Homes position themselves in a constant state of evolution as a company. With this in mind, they are now embarking on a display home, showcasing their versatility. The display home will exercise a “what you see is what you get” approach to this project, as described by Mr Kershaw. This ultimately allows consumers to truly understand what they are buying into, and creating a heightened level of consistency, along with transparency between client and builder. Mondo adopts this process and approach throughout the entirety of their project portfolio.
A multitude of awards have been collected by both Mondo and its founder Ray Kershaw since its inception. Several MBA Housing Excellence Awards appearance as winners as well as finalists. They’ve also duplicated this feat at the HIA Housing Excellence Awards, again in the capacity of award winners and finalists. These categories include, “Best New Builder”, “Small Lot Homes ($200k-350k)”, “Best Customer Service Award”, “Renovations/Additions (350k-500k)”. Ray Kershaw has also accumulated very impressive individual accolades. He has recently won the Master Builders Association National award for “Australian Young Builder of the Year 2015”. This award recognizes Ray Kershaw as a luminary within his industry. It should not be overlooked that just six years prior Mr Kershaw won the Master Builders Association award for “Ric New Rising Star (2009)”.
Strong relationships, such as those with the MBA and HIA, are imperative to the constant growth and sustainability of the industry. When discussing growth, Mondo believes in the importance behind educating the industry, and effectively guiding the next generation of industry professionals. Mr Kershaw is an example of this belief, as he delivers speeches via knowledge sharing platforms and forums, as well as educating through apprenticeship programmes.
When forecasting, Mr Kershaw expresses that “the cost of living as well as the affordability of housing” is currently a major issue in the industry. It is important to drive initiatives that will help lower costs and alleviate budgetary constraints; this will allow the housing market to become more feasible for consumers.
