A successful build means matching skills, materials and minds to deliver the best results. If you’re looking for professional, environmentally thoughtful tradies, Gypco should be on your list.
Grand plans often need more than DIY skills. But it can be tricky to find a building crew that shares your low waste and reuse/upcycling goals. And if you’re trying to do something unconventional, choosing the right builder for your project is absolutely vital. Bad communication or a careless team can create a lot of stress.
The Gypco Carpentry Builders team have experience in building earth ships, off-grid sites, tiny houses, extensions, renovations and contemporary new builds. Paying attention to materials and design choices, and really listening to your goals, is part of the service. If you’re interested in these kinds of projects then you’re in the right place.
Gypco is an animal-loving building crew who walk the talk when it comes to environmentally conscious or eco-building. The team is currently developing a zero-waste building model and actively working from inside the construction industry to address environmental concerns. While it’s a long game, Gypco believes it begins with plastic-free worksites, upcycling, onsite crew meditations and tree planting to offset emissions.
They also help clients consider:
– the embodied energy involved in the manufacturing and transport of new materials
– the benefits of using or repurposing existing materials
– passive design and insulation possibilities
– toxicity and health requirements.
Gypco’s director, Jason Rahilly, wears many hats. He’s a licensed builder and carpenter with 15 years experience in site management. He is also the founder and director of B-Alternative, an environmental consultancy group, which works with schools, councils and events to actively reduce the waste they create.
Hands-on action is something both businesses take seriously.
Like many trades, Gypco Carpentry Builders doesn’t have a website or extensive social media (yet). Although you will find progress photos and videos of their work on their Facebook page. And Jason is always happy to have a chat or book a covid-safe meeting to run through your ideas.
