Portrait Custom homes is a small team, dedicated to providing outstanding quality and service. Our aim is to add optimum value to your home and through it, to your lifestyle. Excellent communication and exchange of information is key to our being able to do this.
Economies can be divided into Product Industries and Service industries. At Portrait Custom Homes, we are very clear that we are in the Service Industry. We do “fret” the small stuff.
Owner, Rob Hyde, graduated in his native South Africa with bachelor degrees in construction management and quantity surveying. He also holds a diploma in construction from the Polytechnic of Western Australia. He is a registered building practitioner in WA.
Rob worked on some major commercial, retail and residential projects with two of the largest Southern African public companies – Murray and Roberts and Group Five Ltd – including construction of two hospitals, schools, shopping centres, a regional court and served as project manager and principal agent on a number of multi–storey residential developments, up to 90 apartments, in Southern Africa and in Perth. He has also consulted as a professional quantity surveyor on various residential and retail projects.
However, it is in the building of custom homes that Rob has had the greatest impact and pleasure. We have been fortunate enough to have had some tremendous clients and tremendous briefs, from modest family homes to luxury designer homes presenting construction and detailing challenges.
