About Us

Area Projects is wholly owned by Brett McGaughie who has over 25 years experience in the building industry.  Brett started building with his father.  He took a passion to creating partnerships with his clients in building their homes and delivering their dreams.  Brett went on to complete his apprenticeship with his father then on to get his Registered Builders License.  In 1996, Brett started Area Projects.


Today, Area Projects is a mid-sized building company that specialises in new homes, townhouses and renovations across Melbourne, with particular presence in Boroondara, Whitehorse, Manningham and the Stonnington Areas. 


The business has grown from a small owner/operator business to a company that now employs 15 people on a full and part time basis.   The majority of Area Projects staff are frontline Carpenters and Apprentices, ensuring that there is very little indirect overheads and they can deliver the highest quality of home at the most competitive prices to clients. 


Area Projects has a sub contractor list that Brett can rely on and one that he is very proud of.  Brett works hard at developing the long term relationships with his subcontractors and values the integral part they play in the completion of his projects.  Many of his sub contractors have been with him since his business started.


Area Projects now not only builds quality homes, but has expanded to include manufacturing of kitchens, cabinets and landscaping (soft and hard scaping) to ensure they can offer the client a complete package at a competitive price whilst ensuring the project management is optimised.
