Managing Director

Grant Patterson

As Managing Director, Grant has always had a very clear vision for the future of Patterson Built. With over two decades of industry experience, from carpentry to concreting and metal roofing, Grant knows how to co-ordinate a successful construction project. He is a devoted Husband to Melanie who works alongside him in the business and a very proud father to their young daughter, Danika.

Grant’s strong family values are widely felt throughout the Patterson Built Team. He gained his passion for building from his father, Ray which was further fostered by Steve who he completed his apprenticeship under. Both of these men offered similar advice… ‘do it right the first time’. Those powerful words have become a big part of the mission statement for his business, his team and his life. Grant has always believed in fostering these working relationships and still works collaboratively with Steve on occasion.

Although Grant has always had an incredible work ethic and impeccable standard of workmanship, he quickly realised that it was these values that set him, and the Patterson Built brand apart from so many.

Grant is passionate about his work and loves to work directly with his clients to get a feel for their vision and get to know them before commencing their project. Grant has truly had a phenomenal career with some spectacular builds, renovations, and fit outs to put to the Patterson Built brand.

Member of the Master Builders Association & HIA. Grant invests every year into his personal development and business development to ensure he is always educated in how he can be the best version of himself for his family, team, & clients. This also helps to implement the strategies necessary to build, grow and systemize the business. He believes he has a lot to offer the next generation of young builders and continues to participate in the apprenticeship scheme.

Patterson Built received the  MBA Award for Excellence in Housing in 2018 and the Hawkesbury Local Business Award for Best Trade Service in 2016. We will continue to strive towards peer recognition by upholding these extremely high standards, both in their finished projects and in everyday communications with their clients.
