Words by Moreton Daily

Ausbuild is creating more than bricks and mortar in Moreton Bay, it prides itself on establishing stronger communities and building long-term relationships.

South East Queensland’s largest private land developer and home builder is delivering two master-planned communities in the region - The Sanctuary at Warner and Montrose at Morayfield.

Ausbuild Joint Managing Director Matthew Bell says the company’s community partnership program is producing positive impacts for the region.

“These initiatives are providing solid foundations to deliver long-term, positive impacts for our residents and their communities,’’ Mr Bell says.

“Our program involves apprenticeships for school students, sponsorship of major local events and a community reference group to help shape our future plans.

“Ausbuild is particularly proud of its Community Fund, which has already provided up to $100,000 to 14 community groups and schools since March 2022.”

Supporting sport

Building strong foundations

Last year Ausbuild signed a three-year sponsorship with the Dolphins to help kick off the 2023 season as the newest club in the National Rugby League competition.

The company’s community efforts were recognised when it won the 2022 Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Award for Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence.

Ausbuild has commenced construction on 50 homes at The Sanctuary, with building work due to start at Montrose in mid-2023.

The Sanctuary has set a benchmark for thoughtful development, with Ausbuild undertaking to rehabilitate 45 percent of the site as a riparian reserve for fauna and flora.

Wildlife habitat

“The Sanctuary has undertaken a major koala protection program including the provision of 1.8m high koala-proof fencing, a fauna crossing under Warner Rd, and conservation zones with 125,000 new native trees and plants,’’ Mr Bell says.

“Our residents will be surrounded by green spaces with parks, walking and cycling paths, a children’s playground with a sensory garden, plus an on-site childcare centre.’’

Ausbuild chose Morayfield for its second Moreton Bay master-planned residential community, Montrose.

Fixed-price guarantee

“Montrose is perfectly located in the high-growth Caboolture area between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, offering a place for families and first home buyers seeking established facilities and lifestyle offerings,’’ Mr Bell says.

“The community will provide the Moreton Bay region with around 600 new homes, four local parks, a childcare centre and more than 12ha of parklands and conservation areas.

“Importantly, Ausbuild provides a fixed-price and finish time guarantee, and as the developer-builder, our buyers know the final package price and have a timeframe so there’s added confidence to plan and budget.”
