Year in Review: Highlights of 2021
Yep, to say 2021 had its challenges is a gross understatement. Chaos aside, it’s nice to reflect on the many good things we achieved regardless.
#1 Brand new look
Our team have been working away behind the scenes to give our brand a fresh new look. While we were a little sad to say goodbye to our butterfly, we are excited about our new direction - one we hope reflects the quality, strength and professionalism you can expect from us here at Lansell Homes.
#2 Just for fun...
This year, we stayed connected as a team, even when working from home around COVID restrictions. Just for fun, some of our office staff got special uniforms for the occasion!
We helped 30 eligible clients take advantage of the Government's Homebuilder Grant. Let me tell you; there was quite a celebration in our office the day the last slab was poured, and we were confident we'd helped meet the construction requirements for each of these clients.
#4 Handed over
Despite widespread COVID lockdown protocols and industry-wide supply and labour shortages, we proudly handed over 35 brand new client homes.
#5 Award winners
We were so proud to take home the 2021 HIA Northern Victoria Regional Housing Award, Display Home category (up to $250k). A big thank you to all our team, contractors, suppliers and clients for helping us create quality homes we can be proud of! We couldn't do it without you.
#6 Apprentice Recognition
Congratulations to Lucas on being shortlisted as a FINALIST in the 2021 @hia_au VIC Apprentice Awards. Two of our apprentices, Zach Humphrey and Ziah Bonanno, were recognised for their skill and commitment to carpentry at the 2021 Master Builders Association Victoria (@masterbuildersvic) Apprentice of the Year awards ceremony last month.
#7 Shooting Day
We had a team bonding afternoon at the Marong Rifle Range back in March.
The winners often aren't who you might have expected. Lucas was the big winner with points, Ziah 2nd. Joanne won the "4 off the bench" round, with Matt a close 2nd.
#8 Continued Education
We have had a number of staff furthering their education this year gaining qualifications such as a Diploma in Building and Construction, to Certificate III and IV in Business to Certificate III Carpentry to name a few.
