How do we ensure high quality and continuous improvement?
To maintain and always improve our excellent service we employed an experienced and industry-involved construction manager - Gelly. The construction manager solely focuses on lifting standards and optimising processes to provide exceptional results for our clients.
Kalka strives to build homes offering the highest quality design to maximise space, function and aesthetic, delivered with exceptional customer service. That is how we earned our excellent reputation in Brisbane and South East Queensland. And we want to keep it this way!
Gelly Augostis started in the construction industry as a carpentry apprentice. After becoming a qualified carpenter and joiner he obtained a contractor licence and ran a contracting business for several years. In 2005 Gelly started as a supervisor at a builder in Townsville. In the 11 years he was employed here, he worked himself up to general manager. In the meantime, Gelly became a significant committee member of the HIA as well.
Gelly: ‘The building industry and building homes for clients is my passion. There is nothing more exciting than seeing the client’s face once we start building their home.’
Involvement in the HIA
HIA, Housing Industry Australia, is an overarching institution for the residential home building industry in Australia. HIA promotes policies and provides services to enhance members’ business practices, products and profitability in line with the highest standards of professional and commercial conduct.
Since 2012 Gelly is active within the HIA, first in the technical committee, working policies and solutions for the residential construction industry and currently as chairman of the technical committee of South East Queensland. By bringing in Gelly, Kalka obtained an extremely valuable amount of wisdom and experience in the residential building industry. On top of that, through Gelly, we have involvement in and early access to industry information regarding standards, quality, processes and changes.
As the construction manager, Gelly’s role is to make the journey of building a home a smooth and effortless process for clients. He leads a handpicked team of supervisors dedicated to delivering a quality home, on time, defect free. He brought a process in place of weekly communication between clients and their supervisor, so clients are always kept in the loop. This enables a customised journey to create an open and stress-free process for the client. Being the construction manager, Gelly oversees and manages this entire process to optimise the journey of building your home.
Gelly: ‘We know building your new home is an emotional experience. That’s why we stay in close contact with you, personalise the journey, to create and effortless process and give you peace of mind.’
