History of success

Foundations that excite us about where we’re going next.

When brothers Peter and Ian Carter founded Prestige Building Services in Canberra in 1989, they based their business on giving clients quality and certainty.

Fast forward a decade, and their reputation for doing just that saw them deliver a large proportion of the Sydney Olympic Village. It led to the opening of a Sydney office in 2000, followed by expansion into Brisbane and even more landmark builds.

Today, we are one of Australia’s most insightful, reputable and collaborative construction companies and our team culture and client loyalty are the greatest measures of our success.

We’re here for life.

Sydney Olympic Village

Newington, NSW

Here for life is a commitment to manifest our partners’ vision and add value over the entire life of a project. It also recognises that we produce places that shape people’s lives. We never lose sight of that.

CEO, PBS

We raise the bar

Our partners’ success is our success – awards are just a cherry on top.

We shape projects around our client partners’ needs, not around awards criteria, but industry recognition justifies their confidence in us delivering exceptional outcomes.

Rock-solid corporate governance

Time-tested financial strength signals our sustainability.

Robust finance capabilities are critical for so many facets of our work with partners. Whether it’s capital restructuring, acquisition due diligence, joint ventures, equity partnerships or long-term commercial planning, we have it covered.

Our liquidity, bonding capacity and the high quality of our pipeline projects assures our ongoing growth while remaining resilient to macro-economic challenges.

Support for our communities

We give back and foster causes we believe in.

Going greener

We believe in protecting what’s important.

Environmental performance is firmly embedded in our business strategy and integral to every one of our projects.

We strive to continually improve our efforts to measure and mitigate the environmental impact of our equipment, facilities, materials and processes.
