IBN Builder of the Month 2020

December 2020 – Considine & Johnston, Leongatha Vic




Diversity in business and the ability to pivot has become an important element of a good building business particularly in 2020. Those that had already established a mix of business are in a better position to survive in a changing market.

Tony Smith and his business Considine & Johnston have weathered the storm in 2020 with their mix of commercial, new homes, extensions, and renovations. Added to this they are accredited GreenSmart builders.

With experience in disability housing and renovations, they are also seeing the positives in Adaptable Living as a point of difference and incorporating this into their promotion to customers. They are now working on Disability Housing as a further pivot and hope to expand on this.

As an IBN member Tony is a regular attendee at our Professional Development days and zone meetings, where his contributions are backed up by his years of experience. He is always happy to impart his knowledge and experience to any of the other IBN members. 


We thank Tony for their ongoing support of the Independent Builders Network and congratulate them on winning this month’s builder of the month.
