In excellent company

Lasting business partnerships with the visionaries and the change-makers.

PBS were the prime choice to complete our first-purpose built LDK Seniors Living Village in Canberra. They are true partners and their people are first-rate. With the construction sector becoming increasingly challenging, PBS’s experience and expertise gave us much-needed peace of mind. Our teams have worked very well together to create a great outcome for our residents.

Founder & Managing Director, LDK Senior’s Living

Fewer headaches, more headspace

We’re leading the field in integrated project delivery.

Along with our own team of architects, designers, planners, project managers and builders, we guide the players around us to a more collaborative build process that overcomes problems, speeds delivery, reduces waste and produces a higher calibre outcome.

It’s one of the reasons our partners view us differently. And why they keep returning to work with us.

A common spirit

We don’t just build communities, we’re a community of builders.

Together with our partners, we become one team and share a common spirit of endeavour.

Our relationships are genuine and we’re generous with our knowledge and our time. We back each other and celebrate our successes together.

Our optimism is palpable, and it comes from within.

Join us

Look forward to each and every day when you come to work at PBS.

Let's build a relationship

Getting us on board from day one sets up your project for success.

If you’re looking to create communities that flourish, then let’s connect and build a better future together.
