This is what to expect from our award winning team.

Our mission.

This is Ian and Matt.

In 2018, these two Perth Builders set out to realise an idea.

To create a building company that went against the grain of traditions that building companies so commonly follow.

No sales team, no display homes, no more feeling like just another cog in the wheel, just two honest Builders that wanted to build people homes that they love.

Fast forward three years to today, and Progen Homes are now multi-award winning builders. From a team of two, to a team of eight and growing. The mission that Ian and Matt set out to achieve isn’t just a reality, it’s succeeding.

Our team.
