Pepper Constructions was formed in 2008 by Henri Grawe and Matt Whiting. It began life as an extension and renovation company specialising in interior, bathroom and kitchen refurbishments. As the company developed, the size of the projects grew and the scope of works expanded to encompass new homes and multi-unit projects. These days Pepper Constructions offers a full design and build service for all types of residential constructions.
Henri and Matt met while working as carpenters in Melbourne in the 1990s. Back then they shared a dream to have their own building company. Years later when their paths crossed again, both fully registered Master Builders, they recognised that Matt’s technical skills, extensive building knowledge and years in carpentry and construction experience would be an excellent match with Henri’s interest in compliance, building and contracts law, his obsession with process and his background in marketing and advertising.
Today they continue to own and manage Pepper Constructions, which has gone on to become one of the best independently owned custom home builders in Melbourne.
Pepper Constructions has a full-time team of eight staff and operates from a factory/office in Oakleigh. The company remains a small business – by design – and we are proud to these days be a family business with two of the owner’s children now working in the business.
The company was named after Henri’s family Labrador, Pepper.
