Quality Work carried out by Quality People.

One thing about WA, is that we love property.

Designing it. Owning it. Selling it. Building it. Leasing it. Improving it.

Whether in boom or gloom times, there is always activity and movement.

But all prestige properties come with a significant amount of work to reach and maintain a standard of excellence. Classic Contractors has a reputation as a high-end quality provider to owners of premium properties in a range of sectors. We work with property managers, developers, architects, interior designers, firms and construction companies to build, paint or refurbish the asset in their care.

Classic Contractors has become known in the industry for an incomparable attention to detail. We do this through maintaining a stable core workforce that retain both a clear understanding of the requirements of our clients, and work to Classic’s best practice standards of work.


Our Team

We decided long ago to stick to what we are good at… it seems to work for us.

Classic’s formidable senior management team bring a wealth of experience and business acumen, and are experts in their respective areas.

motivaion.png

Motivation and Drive

Displaying self-management and a drive to solve a problem without continuous micro management.

brutal honesty.png

Honesty

Expressing an opinion to the person who can be part of the solution, and participating in finding that solution, is a more powerful stance than simply complaining.

financial.png

Financial responsibility

Understanding that as a privately-owned company, all employees are shareholders. Assess initiatives and expenditure based on the current gearing position and empathise with the managers’ reasoning.

vent.png

Vent appropriately

Frustrations are kept within Classic and not directed at clients or suppliers. Communication of any type is directed at the problem not the person.

equality.png

Equality

Treating and supporting everyone within Classic as a peer regardless of their organisational relationship to you. Demonstrate an understanding that we have different levels of accountability and responsibility.

empathy.png

Empathy

Pitching in and helping when you notice a colleague is under more stress than you at that point in time.

flex.png

Flexibility

Making use of the workplace trust and flexibility by attending that important school function! Similarly, be flexible when your team needs you.

professional.png

Professionalism

Recognising that despite which division you work in, you are a part of ONE company and do things that encourage connection.
