For developer Ausbuild, 2022 has been about building communities with much more than bricks and mortar.
The company’s efforts won it the Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Award for Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence, in October, and helped sporting clubs, community groups and schools along the way.
It comes in a year during which Joint Managing Director Mike Loney said the intangible elements of community building – beyond bricks and mortar – had been the most rewarding aspect.
He said the company had implemented a new approach to community building during the past 18 months that recognised its role in making a positive impact.
For Ausbuild, it was a commitment as much as it is a responsibility, and aligned with its values of community, sustainability, ethical behaviour, and integrity.
Mr Loney said Ausbuild’s two master planned communities in the Moreton Bay Region – The Sanctuary at Warner, and Montrose at Morayfield – together with the company’s community partnerships, have created a strong foundation to deliver long-term, positive impacts.
This includes Ausbuild’s partnership with the Vodafone Warriors, who called the Moreton Bay Region their ‘home away from home’ in 2022.
As part of this partnership, it gifted more than 1200 game passes to local school students, State Emergency Services volunteers, Fire and Rescue personnel, and local tradies.
Ausbuild also launched The Sanctuary Community Fund, which is contributing up to $100,000 in community grants to local schools, community groups and not-for-profits, and formalised a partnership agreement with Bray Park State High School to provide meaningful opportunities for students to explore career pathways within the property industry.
As part of the partnership with Bray Park State High School, Ausbuild is providing 20 work experience positions.
Ausbuild has also become a major sponsor of Moreton Bay Regional Council events across the region, including the Redcliffe Kite Festival.
In August, Ausbuild hosted its inaugural Housing for Happiness Gala at the Redcliffe Leagues Club, raising more than $100,000 for local youth homelessness charity, Chameleon Housing.
Ausbuild has also partnered with Dolphins NRL, with their logo now displayed on the squad’s training kit.
Established in 1988, Ausbuild is Queensland’s largest privately owned developer and home builder.
During the past 34 years, it has delivered more than 85 master planned communities and 8900 homes across South East Queensland.
It has two master planned communities in the Moreton Bay Region – The Sanctuary at Warner, and Montrose at Morayfield – and has plans to be involved in the development of Caboolture West.
