About us
So...Why Porter Davis

Porter Davis is currently celebrating its 20th year of operation. When our founder started out in this business, he had clear vision – to build homes that delivered not just on substance but also on style.

While today’s Porter Davis homes still carry all the emblems of excellence, they have also evolved into a vision of how families aspire to live in 21st Century Australia. This is because have been listening attentively to what customers want. Our homes are a reflection of our customers’ physical and emotional needs.

With an emphasis on innovative light-filled open plan designs- often with multiple living areas, interior design, customer focus and professionalism; uncompromising respect for our customers is at the heart of everything we do, from laying the first brick to handing over the keys. The Porter Davis team takes great pride in the fact that our homes, deliver on the founder’s dream and the customer’s vision.

And it’s simply because we have always had more thought built in.

Our manifesto

More thought built in

Here's a thought... Why is it that all volume builders are the same? And where did all the thought that goes into creating a new home go?

It's a brave thing to create

We believe a new home is the foundation to the picture of how life should and can be. It promises the future and frames the past. It stands strong when the dream may weaken. It flexes to change, stays steady when life runs wild. To us, the idea of a home goes way beyond construction, or service, design or style. It’s the very cornerstone of life’s hopes and aspirations.

And it’s a brave thing to create. We understand and respect that - and those who set out to create their dreams around a new home. We appreciate the fragility of such visions and we exist to protect and nurture those dreams.

It’s why above all, we exist to respect the dream.

We think we're different

Here's a few reasons why

  • We've got a ton of genuine expertise.

    You want your home to be perfect. We get that. That’s why we employ detail-obsessed designers and builders. They obsess over things like quality and craftsmanship. Some might say they perfectionists. We think that’s a good thing.

  • We know design. You know you.

    Whether you’ve got a very specific idea of what you want, or you have no idea and need the help of an expert, first we’ll listen, then think, then get obsessed with how it looks.

  • We think about your new home...a lot.

    There’s a lot of thought and time that goes into the building and design of a Porter Davis home. Not just from us, but also from you. After all, it is your new home. And we think you’re going to be happy we all gave your new home so much thought.

Porter Davis isn’t just any building company.

Our promise

We started with a bunch of guys who wanted to make a difference by treating customers with respect and by carefully thinking things through to deliver homes that meet your changing lifestyle needs. That DNA lives on in our business. It’s driven by our founder, expressed in our belief, reflected in our manifesto and comes to life in how we treat you. Let’s face it, building a new home is a BIG deal – and you’re bound to have questions. We asked for feedback from customers and when necessary we have made the changes to ensure we are giving you all the support you need. Our promise to you is that you will always have someone to talk to if you have any questions along the way.
