EcoWise Homes are a sustainable builder located in Bendigo in regional Victoria. Since 2018, owner David Millard has been following his passion for sustainability and delivering energy efficient homes but he feels there is a real disconnection in the industry between the design and build process.
‘I am trying to bridge that gap and have clients engage me in the early stages of design, this way I can be involved throughout the design stage as an extra consultant to work alongside the building designer or architect, structural engineers, energy raters, etc,’ he said.
Mr Millard said he runs a small operation which gives him great choice to choose his clients carefully.
‘I always try to educate my customers, we don't just present standard quotes, my quotes are 25 + pages full of specifications and information about their project,’ Mr Millard said.
‘I am also a small building company, when a client builds with me, they deal with me, I quote, project manage, and build their project.’
Mr Millard says clients are able to get regular updates of their project and progress of their job and clients are able to see photos of their new home via a few clicks on their phone.
Mr Millard said being onsite everyday enables him to keep on top of quality and scheduled work.
‘Every project is a great accomplishment but at the same time they have their own challenges,’ Mr Millard said.
