45 Years Of Building Excellence
Blint Design + Construction have reached a major milestone, celebrating their 44th Anniversary. It was in 1972 that founder Ron Blint first registered his business then known as Blint Builders. Ron had completed his carpentry apprenticeship and set about providing a maintenance, restoration, and extensions business for local Real Estate Agents in the Bayside area. Ron had a family history in woodwork and was introduced to carpentry by his grandfather, a chair maker, at an early age. He was determined that the building industry would be his career path.
The Blint story really started with Ron’s first major extension, a second story addition, completed in 1983. The finished project attracted much attention with many enquiries resulting in similar projects. Blint Builders was establishing a strong niche in major extensions within the Bayside area and specialising in second storey extensions.
The Blint Builders business expanded quickly. Ron was working ‘on the tools’ in a practical hands-on fashion. This ensured a genuine duty of care and quality control but it did not provide a realistic opportunity for expanding the business beyond single project status.
Ron was ‘working on the tools " whilst raising his young family. His role was more of an artisan, a craftsman and on this basis he continued to receive good referrals.
The Blint showroom was set up at McKinnon Rd, McKinnon and the business was running with a major portfolio of ongoing projects. The procedures and methodologies developed earlier remain constant to this day. Due to the systems developed at Blint's the very best personnel have been attracted to work for Blint. This same best practice policy also ensured a steady stream of referrals from satisfied customers.
Blint Design + Construction functions on continual improvement. All staff and personnel are constantly updated on new materials, methodologies and industry trends and the company maintains a strong commitment to personal service. Ron Blint remains accessible and available to his clients. Blint Design + Construction have been awarded HIA awards for best extensions including House of the Year and Runner Up in the same category the following year.
Now That Blint's have relocated to Highett they are very much in the centre of where the bulk of their enquiries are emanating from. So the local Bayside builder is who Ron wants to be. Less travel means more time on the job...
