Profile

Yuncken is a respected and highly accomplished building company specialising in innovative and challenging residential projects from some of Australia's leading architects.

History

The company was founded by Chris Yuncken, a fourth generation builder and came into existence in 1988 as a fully licensed building company. After a stint building chalets, hotels and large residences in the Snowy Mountains the company was moved to Sydney in 1999 in no small part to meet the demand of established clients. In the last 10 years the company has completed in excess of $70M worth of projects designed by some of the country's most distinguished architectural firms. With a focus on innovative and challenging projects recent works have regularly featured in numerous high end publications including Architectural Magazines, newspaper articles and books

Industry Profile

We are best known for residential contract homes $2M+ but we have also completed a significant number of smaller projects that have been time critical or particularly technical in nature such as lift retrofit, commercial bathrooms, generally difficult and sensitive small jobs.

We also have a full time maintenance division which provides a one stop shop for all ongoing building maintenance needs, be it maintaining building fabric, regular building systems maintenance or even pest control and pool maintenance if required.

Philosophy and approach to building

Our approach broadly speaking is to keep the client in the centre of the design and construction process and create value for the client and architect in everything we do. Our philosophy is to establish and maintain a constructive relationship centred on frank discussion and working together to solve problems for the benefit of all parties. We strongly believe that honesty and respect for all stakeholders is a key to long term success. We aim above all to be transparent and consistent. Our accounts are meticulous, and project reporting and forecasting is of the highest standard.

What sets Yuncken apart from most builders is an uncompromising approach to quality which is built into every project. We firmly believe in continual improvement and understand that there is always room for improvement. Maintaining current standards of build is simply not an option. We aim to constantly improve the way we do things and exceed client expectations in every way possible.
