Stroud Homes Brisbane South, based at Jimboomba Woods, was announced as the winner of the Queensland Project Home on Friday, November 2 at the 2018 HIA-CSR Queensland Housing Awards.

The Project Home award recognises excellence in reproducing standard plan homes with minor alterations.

Stroud Homes Brisbane South manager Tom Eldridge said the business had thrived with the same team and approach for the past two years.

“It is a testament to the team we have here,” he said.

“We have the same staff as last year and we are getting the same results. Everyone here is proud of what we do. It pays off in the end and clients are happy.

“I think it is quality that sets us apart and attention to detail on little things...we use high quality suppliers, tradesman do an excellent job and supervision is top notch.”

Stroud Homes is now in the running for recognition at the Australian Housing Awards in May, 2019 at the HIA National Conference in Perth.

Mr Eldridge said Stroud Homes had developed a strong reputation for the past seven years they have been in business.

“I see a shift in the quality of the builds we are giving...we started out with smaller project homes and now people have confidence in us to do bigger more custom projects,” he said.

“It is nice to get that recognition in the industry.”

Stroud Homes supervisor Rob Clancy said the team always looked to improve and made an effort to keep clients in the loop.

Stroud Homes South Brisbane serves clients in the Logan City, Scenic Rim, Lockyer Valley and Brisbane Council areas.
