Sunshine Coast builder, Devcon has been named in the Australian Financial Review Fast 100 list for two years in a row, now ranking as the 13th fastest growing company in Australia and the fastest growing builder in Queensland in 2017.

With a significant housing and construction boom underway, Devcon's business model is to build smart yet affordable housing to meet the increasing demand.

Company sales professional, Peter Schiller said buyer trends for new builds are changing and like all industries, businesses have to focus their teams to deliver the right customer solutions,

"Both home owners and investors are looking for quality, well located homes at the right price.

"There is an increasing focus on sustainability and efficiency.

"This is something we have to deliver on, and being listed as the fastest growing builder in Queensland demonstrates that we're getting it right," Mr Schiller said.

The company prides itself on quality while procuring materials in bulk quantities to help keep their pricing affordable.

Local retailer, Sunshine Mitre 10 are supplying their ever increasing orders of treated timber for their frames.

The timber is all locally and sustainably grown before being processed by Hyne Timber in Maryborough - a carbon neutral process.

Hyne Timber's T2 Blue termite resistant framing is the preferred timber for all Devcon projects, due to the guaranteed treatment quality.

"When people inspect a home or a house plan, they make decisions based on practicality and aesthetics." Mr Schiller said.

"It's up to us as the builder to not only get that right, but to add further value with a structure that will stand the test of time.

"Hyne Timber is sustainably grown, locally and most importantly, the termite treatment offers guaranteed protection without the need for ongoing inspections.

"Imagine buying a brand new home only to find out the frame isn't protected? There's no insurance for that.

"This additional quality assurance is what makes Devcon a trusted builder and why we stand by our homes with pride." Mr Schiller concluded.

Devcon has extensive construction experience, established in 1993 and growing ever since. They have recently secured a number of major developments close to the Sunshine Coast University and new Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

Their Sunshine Mitre 10 Commercial Sales Manager, Russell Maher said the supplier is proud to be partnering with Devcon throughout their growth and development,

"We have been a supply partner for some years now and they are a great company to work with.

"We supply the timber, claddings and all fit-out requirements.

"We are proud to be partnering with Devcon who are set to be one of our largest customer this year." Mr Maher said.

Hyne Timber has been operating since 1882 and today, distributes T2 Blue framing throughout the Eastern Seaboard, south of the Tropic of Capricorn (Rockhampton).

It comes with a fully transferrable, 25 year termite guarantee, is safe to handle and work with and is independently CodeMark certified.

Hyne Timber Customer Manager, Peter Tregaskis said you can't go and replace the structure of a home so it is important builders get it right the first time.

"Buying a new home is one of the most important financial commitments people make in their lives so it makes sense for it to be protected.

"It's great to see builders such as Devcon recognising this as a value proposition for their buyers and investors and something which they can actively market, gaining further trust in terms of quality.

"The treatment is organic and designed to mimic the naturally occurring termite resistant properties of some plant species. It uses ingredients similar to those found in pet flea collars and head lice shampoo.

"There are no annual inspections required for T2 Blue house frames. Set and forget." Mr Tregaskis concluded.
