WITH 2019 coming to an end, the residential and commercial teams of Shelford Group are looking back at a year of great achievements.

This year Shelford Quality Homes opened two new display homes, kicking off with The Lake House display home at Lakelands Estate.

With the trend of shrinking block sizes and suburb re-zoning, this home is specifically designed to maximise the limited space without feeling cramped or restricted.

It presents a valuable housing opportunity for first home buyers, investors or those looking to downsize with compact and clever design featuring all the necessities of modern living, plus a few luxuries, including three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an alfresco dining area, cinema room and spacious open-plan kitchen, living, and dining space.

With the opening of The Karlup display home, Shelford Quality Homes was excited to be welcomed into Australind in the South West.

The Karlup in Chameleon Drive is designed to offer families a stylish and efficient space to grow, catching your attention from the moment you step through the doors with its sophisticated modern colour palette and stylish finishes.

This four bedroom, two bathroom home is a great introduction to the South West community and captures West Australians’ love of entertaining and relaxed living.

It has also meant more investment and job opportunities for the local community starting with a local site supervisor and sales consultant from the Bunbury area.

After opening in September 2018, the updated Shelford Group HQ was this year recognised for Best Office Fit-out – $1.5 million to $5 million by Master Builders WA and was a finalist for Excellence in Showroom Display at the 2019 HIA TRUECORE steel Perth Housing Awards.

Managing director John Mijacika said being a finalist and the award were great acknowledgments for the entire Shelford team.

“To be recognised in the building industry is a great achievement, we are proud as a company and all the staff involved with this project,” he said.

“This new Shelford Group HQ has made a difference not only to our staff, but also for our clients and their building experience.”

The Shelford HQ Selection Studio has been designed to be enjoyable and relaxing by bringing together stylish fixtures and finishes all in one convenient area where clients can personalise their home to suit their own unique style.

Another milestone for the Shelford commercial team this year, Shelford Constructions is now ISO certified receiving certifications for ISO 9001, ISO 140001, and ISO 45001.

This is a testament to the company’s high standards and commitment to quality management, occupational health and safety and the environment throughout its commercial operations.

Another highlight for the Shelford Constructions team was working on the HMAS Stirling Redevelopment Stage 3A project on Garden Island.

This project saw refurbishments of many areas on Garden Island, but the biggest win for the team was being awarded the Doric Safety Award as a result of their work.

Shelford Group is inspired by its milestones and achievements and satisfied clients both in residential and in commercial of 2019 and is excited for what is in store for 2020.
