People Power

northern_rivers_builder_people_power_roboticsA recent article from concerned economist regarding automated robot tech takeover and what it may mean for the future economy made us think about things a little.

Robots are cool, but people are losing jobs, especially in large manufacturing sectors due to technology and computers.

I thought about our industry, the building industry.


I’m happy to say our industry needs people!

In the residential sector, every house we build needs people. Yes, the tools and equipment have improved, but the local tradies and suppliers we use from one family business to another is a great community benefit.

From the sales person you meet at our display home, the excavator, plumber, electrician, tiler… our houses are built by people. Over 80 people will be involved in some small or big way in building your new home!

Every home, even from a standard plan, is individually built to your specifications and colour selections, not a factory product.

So supporting small local businesses & trades people, including ours as a local builder, we make it more about people and supporting the community, which we think is a great thing!
