The Glenvill Group has grown – like any construction project – from the ground up. Beginning six decades ago as Glenvill Homes, the group now encompasses four divisions, including a dedicated building arm, tailored house-and-land packages, and the management of large housing developments.
But if you’d told that to Michael Warson in 1958, he would have raised a bemused eyebrow. From his very first project – the very first ‘Glenvill Home’ – he set his sights quite simply on creating well-planned, well-crafted residences.
Steadily, his reputation grew. New ideas were pioneered. Melbourne’s first physical display home. The concept of ‘open plan’ living. The ‘family room.’ The en-suite bathroom. And crucially, the combination of architecture and construction together: a profound breakthrough for the entire industry.
In 2005, Michael’s son Len reinvented the way the business operated, taking the service-orientated focus of five-star hotels as a guiding star. Since then, Glenvill has become synonymous with premium homes – a premium product married with a premium experience.
Today, tallying more than 10,000 projects and counting, Glenvill is still known in the industry and beyond for refined architectural design, contemporary ideas and quality that is anything but ordinary.
