Estimate – ACS provides a pay as you go estimating offer that simplifies the paper-flow of building, saving our members time on the estimating and the supplier quote process with an ease of Purchase Order raising – we can also be a second and third set of eyes for project cost control.

Procure – ACS employs full time procurement that focuses on best supply chain outcomes from industry leading brands and suppliers. The price file is available to our members through cloud based access, keeping pricing always up to the moment while delivering price certainty to our members and savings through our negotiated procurement of over 2,000 homes p/a built by our members.

In addition to the above we can design a custom product specification tailored to suit your client or project type.

OUR PEOPLE

Mark Roach

Managing Director

Tell us a little about your background in the industry?
My work experience ranges
from building supply companies primarily across plumbing distribution and hot water manufacturing.  I left these for a short stint at a medium volume builder which is where we realised the gap for the
services we offer.
 
Can you explain your role at ACS? How long have you been with the company?
I started the company nearly 8 years ago with a small selection facility in the west and as with any small business my role today is still as diverse as it
was back then.  However I now primarily focus on procurement, systems, processes and expansion opportunities.
 
Have you seen changes in what customer’s expect of
the building industry?

Our builders customers are more educated and have a higher level of expectation in service delivery, documentation and communication.  Even if they are dealing with a smaller family run business they will still expect similar levels of service and price to volume builders.
 
What advice do you have for builders working with ACS? How do you get the most out
of working with us?

We are not for everyone.  We expect our builders to be able to follow a process, pay on time and above all be good people.
 

Daniel Wood

General Manager

Tell us a little about your background in the industry?
Career wise, I’ve only ever known the building industry. I started my working life off as an apprentice through to working in management roles for building manufacturers like CSR & Boral before joining ACS.
 
Can you explain your role at ACS? How long have you been with the company?
My role with ACS is all things operational – working with our  sales, estimating & design teams.
 
Have you seen changes in what customer’s expect of
the building industry?

Our builders clients more than ever want to be inspired by our finishes that our Gallerie Studio present – but we are very focused on delivering the inspiration with affordability.
 
What advice do you have for builders working with ACS? How do you get the most out of working with us?
ACS is a flexible overhead for the builder, once joining it is a pay for use offering across design & estimating that will deliver many benefits back including time – time is what our builders value most of all!
 

OUR DESIGNERS

Joe Coonan

Estimating Manager

Tell us a little about your background in the industry?

I’ve worked in the building industry (mostly for residential building companies) for about 15 years in roles predominantly involving preconstruction administration, purchasing, estimating and project management.
 

Can you explain your role at ACS? How long have you been with the company?

I oversee a small team of estimators and manage the workflow, however traditional estimating is only a part of what we do. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to maintain various IT related programs and systems. I also develop and maintain our estimating software.

Have you seen changes in what customer’s expect of
the building industry?

Perhaps people expect more
for less or things to be done quicker. My background is mostly working on the builders side of the fence so this role has been a change in direction for me and in turn my focus is a little different to previous roles.

 

What advice do you have for builders working with ACS? How do you get the most out of working with us?

Our services offer a huge amount of flexibility, yet are
also designed to support our members with structured processes. 
ACS is an extension of a builders business, therefore when we’re appointed to provide a service, we set high standards when completing the task.

Michelle Johnson

Business Development Manager

Tell us a little about your background in the industry?
30 plus years of experience, developing a range of skills and expertise within the plumbing and building industry.  Working in a variety of roles including sales & business development with some of the leading manufacturers and suppliers in the plumbing and building industry. Project management, staff management and  customer services management with volume and custom building companies.
 
Can you explain your role at ACS? How long have you been with the company?
I started at ACS as a relatively new business in 2010 left in 2013 and had a variety of roles including business development, customer relations manager of our first Gallerie selection centre to pursue education and personal interests and returned in 2016 as project and specification manager.
 
Have you seen changes in what customer’s expect of
the building industry?

Yes expectations are at an all time high. Customers are smarter and they expect to be wowed! They research and make informed decisions – they expect a professional and enjoyable customer experience and to have access to the latest technology and design trends when it comes time to select their fittings and fixtures – for their home, investment property or project.
