Director's Story

Hi, I’m Daniel, the owner of Kwaliteit Constructions. Growing up, building was in my blood – my dad is a builder and structural engineer. After migrating from the Netherlands my grandfather and his brother started their own construction company, which was then taken over by my father and uncle. My parents eventually took sole ownership of the company and ran it successfully for many years, so construction has always been a part of who I am. I started on the tools right after high school, honing my craft and skills. At 26, I made the move to Melbourne, seeking new challenges and opportunities. Two years later, I found myself in London, where I continued to learn and grow in the construction industry.

My wife (girlfriend at the time, Dominique) and I moved to London in early 2017 and then returned in 2019 to get married and start a new chapter in our lives.

In London I was working with a residential renovation construction company, firstly as the leading hand carpenter before turning into a site manager on large-scale, high-end extensions and renovations (at one point I was working on a house in the same street as Madonna & Rowan Atkinson!)

On my return to Melbourne, I was working as a site supervisor
for a sustainably driven construction company based in the northern suburbs. We transformed tired, leaky old houses into high performance homes for the future.

I learnt a lot from both of these experiences, in very different ways. London taught me how following correct and complex building practises can lead to homes standing strong for hundreds of years. As well as how to work on large scale projects with very limited space. Melbourne has taught me how you can transform a space and create a high performing home in any environment.

One of my standout projects, was supervising a 4-storey renovation in Chelsea, London, with a large extension at the rear. Very limited access and parking meant we had to have great communication and people skills in such an affluent area. I was hands on, building the roof, new floors and walls whilst managing a core team of 8, as well as all of the sub-contractors. It was an amazing project to be a part of and I truly got a taste of what building thoroughly and with quality means. Understanding exactly why English houses can last so long.

In late 2019 we decided it was time to come home to Melbourne. We had got engaged in Somerset in the UK the previous year and so were ready to start a new chapter in our lives, get married and start a family.

At 32, I took the leap and started my own business, Kwaliteit Constructions. It was a dream come true to be able to deliver quality building services to the people across Melbourne. Over the years, I’ve completed multiple projects, specializing in renovations and extensions, helping young growing families in the area increase the size of their homes without having to leave the community they love. I’ve always been a big believer in providing a quality service and product. Over the years I have created and grown a people-focused culture because I strongly believe that communication is the key to an efficient and effective project process and job well executed.

What sets Kwaliteit Constructions apart is our unwavering commitment to quality. We have checklists at every step of the process, ensuring that every detail is taken care of. Our team works together to make sure that everyone feels involved and that we’re always working towards meeting your needs. Our core values of quality, communication, teamwork,  sustainability, and trust guide everything we do.

When you choose to build with us, you’ll go through a seamless process that includes steps like; an initial enquiry, site visits, pricing reviews, and finishing touches. We also have systems in place like; quality control checklists, fortnightly toolbox meetings with site crews, and regular client meetings to keep you informed every step of the way.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing sport, and traveling. My personal achievements include representing NSW in soccer, holding building licenses in both NSW and Victoria, and being a proud husband and father of two beautiful daughters, Itzel & Amelie.

I’m here to help you bring your dream home to life, and I can’t wait to work with you on your next project.

“Let’s build something amazing together!”
