Grundella Constructions build remarkable homes of architectural significance and quality craftsmanship.
Having developed a passion for architecture and design during his time living in Scandinavia, founder and
managing director Clint Grundy is on a mission to celebrate craftsmanship through quality construction and
innovative design.To achieve such results, the business has fostered relationships with likeminded architects,
specialised tradespeople and equally fastidious suppliers. This, combined with a genuine desire to engage
the client through the process, ensures that Grundella Constructions always delivers an outstanding result.
Founder Clint Grundy is a busy man, but we sat down with him for a quick chat to learn more.
HI THERE CLINT. CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT GRUNDELLA CONSTRUCTIONS?
I’d love to! I started Grundella Constructions because I am passionate about quality buildings and
architecture. I felt there was a gap in the market to service clients who share my attention to detail and a
desire to produce really, really good work. As Charles Eames said, “The details are not details. They make
the design.” This is a philosophy we live by every day.
WHAT ARE YOU & THE TEAM TRYING TO ACHIEVE?
At it’s most basic, what we’ve set out to do is build remarkable homes of architectural significance and
quality craftsmanship. But more specifically, our aim is to become the renowned builder of architectural
homes in Australia. When we’re the first port of call for a project that requires precise execution, we’ll
know we’re on our way.
THAT SOUNDS GREAT, BUT WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN?
Great question. Every day we’re working towards our vision by embedding our passion for craftsmanship,
quality and client satisfaction into each and every project. Quite often the difference between a good
project and a great project is in the finest of details, and this is where we excel. Therefore, regardless of
the project, we work towards the best practice – not the easiest, or the quickest – just the best.
WHAT DRIVES YOU TO MAINTAIN SUCH STANDARDS? DOES IT REALLY MATTER?
Yes, it definitely does matter! I am excited by outstanding architecture, but I also have a great respect for
it. The standards we strive for are born from that respect. We believe that when something is built, it
should be built to last. More and more people are tuning into this approach as a revolt against the
disposable architecture that’s plaguing our cities.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM HOME?
I can describe how it will feel, but I don’t know what it looks like just yet. It will feel warm – homely – a
space that brings my family together. A simple pallet; use of concrete and timber; lots of natural light, and
a space that embraces nature would definitely be part of the brief.
WILL YOU STILL BE BUILDING BEAUTIFUL HOMES IN 20 YEARS TIME?
Absolutely. Building beautiful homes is what I love to do. It is my passion, not just my job. I hope that in
20 years time my sons will join the business and keep the passion for beautiful homes moving forward.
APART FROM INSPIRING ARCHITECTURE, WHAT ELSE ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT?
I get excited about travelling with my family. I spent some time travelling when I was younger, and I look
forward to sharing those experiences with my wife and two sons. I also enjoy snowboarding, waterskiing,
and any other adrenaline packed sport…when I can find the time.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME, CLINT.
