Amazing success story of a Home Improvement Company

success story of a Home Improvement Company

Ian Cubitt founded his home improvement family company back in 1994 with just 5 members, operating out of a modest workshop/office in the Sydney suburb of Marayong.

The company soon built a trusted name for itself by offering a wide range of quality home improvements, like extensions and first floor additions. Since this humble beginning, Ian Cubitt’s Classic Home Improvements has achieved remarkable growth. It now employs 50 staff members and retains over 80 contractors.

The Ian Cubitt’s Classic Home Improvements success story

ICCHI has achieved a considerable reputation, including:

  • The title of being New South Wales’ largest and most trusted Granny Flat Builder.
  • Collectively having over 150 years of experience in the building industry.
  • Being a wholly-accredited member of HIA (Housing Industry Association).
  • Offering a diverse range of products and packages that can be tailored to suit clients’ visions and budgets.
  • Being proudly a fully Australian-owned and operated company.
  • Winning numerous Housing Industry Awards and creating an enviable track record of delivering projects on time and on budget.

The Granny Flats boom

Some 12 years ago Ian Cubitt recognised that the Granny Flat market had great future growth potential and so added these to the suite of constructions on offer.

His strategy proved to be spot on.

Steady levels of migration and low first home buyer numbers created a big demand for affordable accommodation and so Granny Flat constructions have skyrocketed.

Today, the company has risen up to become New South Wales’ largest and most trusted Granny Flat builder, constructing some 300 Granny Flats a year with a range of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom options in a variety of architectural designs.

To showcase the range of Granny Flats, ICCHI now offers special facilities where prospective clients can get information from trained consultants and inspect real Granny Flat models at the Exhibition Centres.
