Marksman Homes Products
Marksman has more than 200 house designs from which to choose. Our experienced sales team assist customers in selecting a design to suit their needs. We welcome changes to our designs, and in doing so, ensure each individual customer's specific requirements are met. We build on a contract basis on either our customer's land or on our land, such as our Blackbutt Woods Estate. We also tailor design if required.
Marksman use passive solar architectural design principles. We attempt to site homes to maximise the sun's energy and to optimise the energy efficiency of the house itself. Marksman Homes is registered with Wollongong City Council as having an understanding of the principles of Energy Efficient Design and have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) to undertake SEDA's Energy Smart Home Builders initiative. Marksman is a NSW HIA GreenSmart Regional Partner with accredited GreenSmart Professionals on staff.
We are very sensitive to the impact our building has on the surrounding environment both during and after the construction process. We employ a number of control measures during work on the site such as noise, waste and sedimentation controls.
Our waste management policy includes a number of controls and checks to ensure the efficient collection and disposal of waste generated throughout the construction process. It is policy to provide our customer with a presentable site at all times. Marksman Homes are included in the Illawarra Waste Management's Waste Exchange Directory. The directory is one method of encouraging the minimisation of materials, which might otherwise go to waste.
One of Marksman's major strengths is our attention to detail. This is reflected in the well-documented plans, specifications, colour selection information and variations prepared prior to the commencement of construction. This detail of the customers requirements, together with our high emphasis on quality construction, provide a framework in which our Building Manager and his supervisors can control progress and ensure all elements are constructed according to best practice. All of our trades, from the surveyor through to the cleaner, subscribe to our quality management ideal and perform their work according to best practice. Quality assurance checks are completed by all trades and supervisors. Random checks are carried out by the Quality Manager. A Company Safety System has been implemented outlining our commitment and responsibility to WH&S of employees and sub-contractors. Marksman was a 2004 State finalist in the HIA’s Best Practice Award for WH&S.
