In 2019 Craft Construction was proud to celebrate our 10th birthday. It was founded in 2009 by Ben Holdich, a sole contractor working in high end residential properties with four years experience as a project manager under his belt. As Craft Construction Limited (a limited liability company), Ben was on a mission to build a sought after, well-known brand that delivered successful, exceptional quality projects underpinned by strong ethics and values.
Ben’s vision became a reality and Craft Construction’s reputation rapidly grew for being specialists in bespoke renovations and premium villa restorations, which has seen our company dominate the industry. Each of the Craft Construction team brings unique technical trade skills, is qualified, and LBP experienced. Ben’s commitment to maintaining our strong, tight knit team, some of whom having been with us since Craft’s inception, has ensured we can guarantee our Craft promise of a no surprises, quality build.
In 2019, Ben’s wife, Rhiannon, joined as one of the owners of Craft. Before commencing their working relationship, the pair decided it was the opportune time to renovate our Craft Construction brand. During this revitalisation, they set out to finetune and cement the overarching Craft brand, its values, and what Craft means to staff, contractors, services and clients.
With the wheels in motion, Ben and Rhiannon realised it was time for expansion. This was when Ben implemented an ambitious, decisive 10 year plan for our Craft brand. Ben and Rhiannon knew that the best company they could create would be one that represents them. So they took the best of their relationship, their personalities, lifestyles and values, and applied it to the business and brand. The result is our Craft Group of Companies.
Ben and Rhiannon
Everyone who meets Ben will quickly notice that he is a listener and a doer. He’s someone who prides himself on getting the job done. He is focused, calm, relaxed and kind, and possesses a natural ability to teach and share what he knows with a huge generosity of spirit. He is highly experienced, and a confident, widely respected builder, project manager and director. Ben oversees all our Craft Construction builds, which is why our clients request him as their builder by name for major renovations.
Ben is also a very hands on dad. He always prioritises one-on-one time with his two children, Mia and Ari. As a result, they are as much part of the team and feel connected to all our Craft builds as he is. When Ben is not on the tools he is a quiet chap who potters around the house finding things to fix or firing up the BBQ for an evening feast – and everyone is invited!
Rhiannon is an Aries with fire in her belly and the engine room of Craft. She’s a proud, capable mum of two who happily wears a billion hats. She is very client and community-focused and holds deeply-rooted family values that keep her grounded.
Rhi’s motherly instinct nurtures our Craft team, bringing everyone together to create our unique and unified company culture. She has a natural talent for interior styling and decor, with a passion for all things colour. Rhi is excited to be following in Ben’s footsteps, and under his guidance and leadership is training to be a reputable, quality builder as she progresses through her carpentry apprenticeship. Day-to-day, Rhiannon is hands on with the marketing team, accounting and admin, and conducts tagging and site safe audits.
Mia and Ari
Two of the team’s most important members are Mia, 4, and Ari, 12 weeks. They are heavily involved in all things Craft and are the secret to our success. Ben and Rhi created Craft Group to ensure that spending time with Mia and Ari was always at the top of the agenda. The young pair attend every meeting with the staff making sure the teams stay on track while cooing at the admin girls (Ari). On weekends, Mia and Ari are regulars on site lending a hand with mum and dad.
Thanks to Mia’s pivotal role in our company, it has become evident that she has inherited her parents’ natural talents and an eye for building, in particular architectural drawings. She will be the boss of us all in no time. We’ll keep you posted.
The Holdich family works extremely hard to achieve perfect results for clients and looks forward to making your vision a reality.
