JAXON daring to be different in construction game

  • Written by Adam Santarossa


DESPITE the building sector being in a downturn, JAXON’s unique way of working with clients is helping it secure high-profile projects across Western Australia.

 

The company celebrated its 60th anniversary late last year, and the second oldest construction company in Western Australia is showing no sign of slowing down.

 

JAXON are involved in several high profile works in 2019, including projects at St Georges College, Nedlands, The Springs at Rivervale Tully Road in East Perth and the 27 storey Accor series hotel in the Perth CBD.

 

These large-scale projects are just a select few projects the company has in its pipeline.

 

“2019 is set to be another strong year for the company,” JAXON CEO David Dodds’ explained.

 

“We are proud that we are seen as a valuable partner in the construction market and we feel that the quality of our delivered projects speak for themselves.”

 

JAXON says the key to its success is their ability to work with clients to maximise the potential of each development, in a tightening construction market.

 

The company focus heavily on reviewing design details to ensure every opportunity is scrutinised and the best result is attained for the client.

 

“It is about looking at alternative materials and alternative methods for consideration to help clients maximise their budget,” Mr Dodds explained.

 

“We have to work with the client to ensure we have a project that fits within their feasibility allowance.”

 

Despite making a name for themselves in apartment living, JAXON has shown its diversity by transitioning to other aspects of the construction industry.

 

The company will soon also unveil the 900 Hay Street hotel development with Accor Hotels and has also recently turned its attention to aged care, undertaking a new project with CraigCare in Ascot.

 

It all forms a refreshing new age approach to construction, that is showing real benefits to JAXON.

 

“There are some unique developments that we are involved with and we focus on a number of key factors,” Mr Dodds said.

 

“We work with the client to look at all the different options to try and make improvements in cost, quality and programme.

 

“We have a team of highly experienced design managers internally, and analyse each tender we are involved with in order to provide beneficial options for our clients.

 

“It’s quite a comprehensive approach and we’ve seen some real benefits for our projects.”
