JOB DONE // Ben commenced at Visioneer just over 6 years ago – returning to the high-end residential market where he started his career after a stint with a couple of commercial builders in-between. Ben’s first project with Visioneer, 1886 Residence in Hawthorn East, was the winner of the renovation/addition project of the year in the 2020 HIA CSR Australian Housing Awards, beating all the other renovation/addition projects in the country! Ben’s next project was the refurbishment of the iconic Albert Park Hotel, which was successfully completed on time, however, was delayed in opening due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ben is currently working on our largest single-residential project in Toorak, complete with its own tower crane!​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Q&A with Ben: ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Nickname (and why): Benno/Benny - think that explains itself.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Why did you choose Visioneer? I remember driving past a Visioneer job on Power St and thinking 'they look like a good builder to work for'. And as luck happened a recruiter rang me and told they were looking for a site manager. 6 years later...​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Best part of working at Visioneer: The culture within the company. Building some of the best houses in Melbourne/Australia is pretty good too. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
When I’m not working, I am: I'm spending time with my family, surfing, waterskiing, motorbike riding, playing golf.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Drink of choice: Stone and Wood pacific ale or a single malt whiskey.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Spirit animal: Magpie. ​​​​​​​​

EYE FOR DESIGN // A registered Architect, Minh commenced at Visioneer in June 2018 following stints at development companies as a Design and Project Manager. Minh has been our regular ‘go to’ Project Manager for our multi-residential projects, of which he recently completed Heyington in Toorak. Minh is also our resident ‘Annie Leibovitz’, having won multiple Visioneer photo competitions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q&A with Minh:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nickname (and why)?: You can’t make a single-syllable name any shorter so I don’t really have a nickname. But Mino, Mina, and Handsome come up a bit. Why? Rhetorical question.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why did you choose Visioneer?: I didn’t. Visioneer chose me! No, in all seriousness, Visioneer put great emphasis on delivering quality high-end projects and are proud of what they build.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Best part of working at Visioneer: Culture. And ensuring the team are never short of Macca’s chicken nuggets.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I’m not at Visioneer, I am; influencing others into the world of watches and cars. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Drink of choice: Malbec from Mendoza.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Spirit animal: Flying Pig. If you believe in it, pigs will fly.
