Craft began in 2009 with Ben, a sole contractor working with high end residential companies. With 4 years experience of project managing, Ben formed Craft Construction Limited (Limited Liability Company), managed by myself and younger brother working towards becoming a well-known brand who held its values and promises throughout each project with success.
Craft Construction has always specialised in Renovations and villa restorations which has given his team the up-skill and technical skills required to dominate the industry.
Ben has always kept his team small, never exceeding 5 and always being qualified and LBP experienced. This is to ensure quality is always to expectation with no surprises around the corner.
In 2019, Craft was re-branded and re-marketed with what reflects the company in all aspects as well as shows we are a building company. The services of Craft Construction are now Residential focused while taking on some commercial project. We have changed our branding to reflect our family and family values but also changed our processes to ensure our company is up to date with trend, technology and that you know whats going on from concept to completion.
In 2019, Ben’s Wife, Rhiannon, became one of the owners of Craft. Before commencing their working relationship. it was decided it was time to renovate the Craft Construction brand and then implement the Craft Group 10 Year Plan. The objection to re brand was to discover what Craft means and what values it will carry once it merges.
Ben chose to expand Craft Construction as he wanted reliable, consistent trades who would align with Craft Group. With Rhiannon going out on her own as a painter and decor specialist, Bruce ready to project manage and hone in to smaller more specialised jobs, it made sense to expand. Before the 10year plan was implemented and the expansion happen, both Ben and Rhiannon knew the company needed reflect and represent “them” and not your standard issue of residential / commercial company you see everywhere. Ben & Rhi have made it theirs by taking the best of their relationship, personalities, lifestyles and values, applying it to their overall business and brand.
Ben and Rhiannon
Ben. When reflecting on who Ben is, we see – Relaxed, Focused, Respect, Kind, Someone who can teach, A Listener. We also see someone who very experienced and confident through his actions as a Director and well respected builder. Ben oversees the builds and at times will be requested by clients as a builder on major renovations. Ben is a very hands on dad and ensures they are involved awithin our builds and also get one on one quality time with him. 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.
Rhiannon: When reflecting: we see an Aries with fire in the belly. A Mum of 2 who wear a billion hats. She is client and Community focused with family values referred to at all times. Rhi has a mother instinct around the group and enforces a unified culture. Her passion is Decor and everything colour. Rhi is also following in Bens footsteps to be a reputable quality builder as she progresses through her carpentry apprenticeship. Rhiannon is hands on with the marketing team, Accounting, Admin and conducts tagging and site safe audits.
Mia & Ari : 4years old and 12weeks old, heavily involved in all things Craft. They are always at meetings with the staff, bossing the teams around and cooing at the admin girls. Craft Group was created factoring in time for them throughout the building programme which means we do not operate a week between builds. During the expand it was evident Mia had an eye for building but mainly architectural drawings.
Together, the Holdich family work extremely hard to achieve perfect results for their clients. The family unit work together to get through your quotes and site visits.
