STRENGTH OF BUILDING HOMES
/ SINCE 1980
Salvatore Minniti arrived in Australia in 1961 intent on building a better life for his wife and their future family. In 1980, after many years working in the building industry around Perth, Salvatore established Minniti & Son Builders – a building company based on the foundations of Italian values. He grew this business over the years by building the finest quality homes in Perth.
Domenic Minniti grew up in the family business and Salvatore encouraged his son to learn all the fine details of running a successful luxury home building company from a very young age. From meetings with customers to laying foundations and putting the final touches on the landscaping, Domenic learned from his father all the intricacies of building the perfect home, and how to succeed in the Perth building industry – something he prides himself on today.
Domenic began the company we know today as Domination Homes and he and his brother-in-law have continued to grow the business, with some of the employees having worked for Domination Homes and now also Zircon Living for 10 plus years, whilst holding true the original values passed down by Salvatore. These values are celebrated in the company’s motto:
DESIGNED ON INNOVATION, BUILT ON TRADITION.
That’s the Domination Homes & Zircon Living difference, and we hope to share this with you.
Anthony Audino – General Manager
“Established in 2015, every Zircon Living home showcases over 40 years of cutting-edge design and build quality from our proud heritage. With a limited number of builds, it allows me to oversee each and every home from the design stage through to handover, ensuring our build time and quality is not compromised. I have been lucky enough to witness my family applying their skills on building sites all over Perth. The old fashioned work ethic and pride applied to each home continues in our quality control process today.”
Quality Control Process
Being the Third Generation in the Family Business I was lucky enough to witness my Grandfather and Father applying their skills on Building Sites all over Perth.
The old fashioned work ethic and pride applied to each home continues in our Quality Control Process today which ensures that this passion will continue on.
I personally oversee every home that we build and am in regular contact with our Site Supervisors and Trades to maintain the level of standard I expect to see in all our homes including:
- Build Quality
- Build Time
- Site Safety
- Tidy Sites
CLIENT / JOURNEYS
We contracted Zircon Living to construct several units in Ashby and the whole process from start to finish was handled in a very warm and professional manner and with their commitment to providing a high level of customer service,attention to detail and delivery of a quality building product resulted in all our expectations being well and truly met.
Their product show room and excellent knowledge and useful tips provided by Mark Murphy was really appreciated in assisting with our product selections.
Overall a very capable team we would recommend to anyone contemplating a building project.
Zircon provided an excellent service from start to finish of the two house development. They provided great advice on the demolishment of the old house which I managed. Their Turn key pricing was very competitive and great value for money with very good specifications including caesarstone benchtops throughout, quality carpets and tiling, LED lightening etc the list goes on…Their initial pricing of the project was spot on and I had no surprises which was of great comfort. I would definitely recommend this builder. To date their after build service has also been very good. Impressively they build the two houses, 5 bedroom and 4 bedroom homes, 2 baths, living and dining areas, kitchen, scullery and theatre, laundry etc….in a very timely manner within a 6 month period with no hassles. They were easily contactable. Great job by all the Zircon Team from designers, project managers to supervisors. Highly recommend them to all.
This was our 1st build, when we had the handover the inspector couldn’t find anything wrong apart from an odd Mark that was then painted over the next day. Been living in the house since April and no issues.
I have only high praise for this company. They have just built my first house and from start to finnish they have made it a great experience. The customer service and build quality is second to none. Thankyou all for building me a fantastic home..
We built a custom designed family house with Zircon, and we’re really happy with the result. We already had a design when we came to the builder, but Anthony made design suggestions that really added value, and are now some of our favorite features of the house. I would happily build with Zircon again, I will just get them involved in the design earlier next time.
Provides you the great service for reasonable home consultation design and constructions.
We’re at the pre-start stages of building our dream home with Zircon Living. A few things that have stood out so far with us is customer service (not just a number), attention to detail, quality and the “anything is possible” attitude. Zircon Living have offered complete customisation to our “must have” wish list which many other builders put in the “too hard basket”. We were lucky enough to have been referred to Zircon Living and since our first meeting with the general manager, Anthony we’ve never looked back. Pre-start with Mark was smooth and he came up with many ideas which we may have otherwise overlooked. We can’t wait to complete the journey with the amazing Zircon team.
Highly recommended builder, the whole process has been seamless and the finished project is simply superb. Would definitely contact Zircon again for my next build.
I knew that I wanted my own home, I just didn’t know where to start. After discussing my options with Zircon Living it was clear that dealing with a team that focussed on my goals first would give me the best value for money.
We were so impressed with the personal attention and input from the whole team at Zircon Living. The build time exceeded our expectations and still provided a well-executed product. The communication between our Project Co-ordinator Mark and Site Manager Cosi that we were kept across every stage of the process. We received such great feedback from the market on the quality and finishings that we would highly recommend Zircon Living for all property investors from single & two storey builds top developments. We would definitely use Zircon again in the future.
Due to impending holidays and a strict timeline Zircon Living were extremely accommodating and completed our drawings efficiently, ensuring we were able to lodge our finance application on time. Being a first-home owner, we didn’t know where to start with finance, so Zircon Living referred us to our current Finance Broker who lodged our finance application. The extra support made the overall experience seamless and easy to understand. When it came to the build Anthony and the team were equally fantastic, keeping us up to date throughout the entire project. It allowed us to ask questions and confirm details at any time which gave us comfort knowing that Zircon Living understood what we were looking for.
An essential part of starting any build is finding an initial block to build on. For Jordyn and myself this proved challenging because as a first home buyer it’s hard to know what type of block characteristics we were looking for to best suit our design and more importantly our budget. The Zircon team were instrumental on assisting us on finding the perfect block as i was constanstly forwarding through emails and photos of potential blocks that interested us and received very detailed and well advised responses. In one instance a team member actually met us on site to advise us before finalising our decision. Zircon Living being involved in the decision process as well as the building process, assisted us greatly because as first time home buyers it can be quite daunting. Having someone to reassure and advise you, eased the process. The design process was smooth. we told Zircon what features we wanted, and they came back with the options they thought best. They accommodated for everything we asked for in our home, nothing was ever too hard for them. We trusted them in designing our home, and they didn’t let us down. Our favourite part of our home would have to be the amount of storage space we have, in terms of cupboards, linen closets etc. We have a small block, but Zircon designed a home that is so functional and doesn’t feel small at all.
Zircon Living is a very professional and experienced builder. They have delivered both of the design and construction for our dream house on the budget and on time. The manager is very responsible and helpful. The site supervisor and the tradies are very experienced. We are really happy for the final delivery and would highly recommend others to use Zircon Living.
Zircon Living, My place called home 🙂 I initially had a design with another…but just could not commit. So I took my ideas to Zircon who asked me questions, like what are you trying to achieve, what was important to me, my budget. They listened and guided me through, giving me ideas on how things work and don’t work. How my designed space will be usable and making the most out of a small cottage block with views and living areas to the front of the house. Zircon were very competitive on price and there were no hidden extras along the way. From designers to the fabulous Mark Murphy in prestart consulting, to Joe the supervisor and all the trades who worked on my home. A very professional and caring team that work together with you to achieve the finished result. Their commitment and customer service is highly sort after. I also had the pleasure of getting expert advice and guidance from Domenic Minniti, which exceeded all expectations. I highly recommend Zircon Living, with decades of experience and a team of true professionals, you will not be disappointed.
The process so far with Zircon Living has been awesome! From our first conversation with Anthony, to getting our design right with Sarandy and pre-start with Susan, it has been seamless and so smooth. Communication has been great and we have never felt as if we do not know what is going on. We couldn’t be happier to be building with Zircon Living and cannot wait to see the build/our house progress.
My husband and I built our house with Zircon and were delighted with the service and quality. We had a couple of initial issues with the tiling and oven which were dealt with promptly and fully resolved by Zircon and we always felt as though they were working for us. The 6 month maintenance was quick, hassle free and efficient. We would highly recommend Zircon and would like to use them again if we build in the future.
