Sam entered the building industry in the normal way after completing high school, via an apprenticeship as a Carpenter and Joiner.  

He joined the well-known commercial building company Deskon Pty Ltd.  He attended the Randwick College of TAFE NSW and was awarded the Certificate in Carpentry and Joinery in 1992.

As a 2nd year apprentice Sam had taken on the role of site management with enthusiasm and his Employer trusted him to run building projects as a Site Manager, providing guidance and instructions to Tradespeople twice his age.

Consequently, he was fast-tracked through the company ranks.

He obtained his Builders Licence through TAFE NSW in 2006.   Following the aim to own his own business Sam established Resolve Building in 2003.

He built his family home and others for family members and friends.

He specialised in domestic renovation projects and moved from there into the insurance rectification niche where the challenges also carried over into commercial, industrial and institutional projects.

He worked with other specialist Builders as a designated sub-contract Builder taking on the projects allocated.

Having carried out thousands of rectification projects as a Builder, he wanted to explore the office side of construction and gained a position at Sun Developments Pty Ltd, trading as Sun-Greenaway Builders as an Estimator.

It was soon apparent that Sam had a talent for the important skills of negotiation and problem solving that is crucial when preparing competitive tenders on large building claims.

Sam won many new projects and skilfully guided the company Supervisors through from start to completion, increasing the company turnover and enhancing the reputation within this specialist marketplace.

Sam has taken a stake in the company and is joint Managing Director now.

In an interesting twist not uncommon in our industry, Sam’s son Andrew is commencing his apprenticeship as a Carpenter and Joiner with MBA NSW and our company will be hosting him.
