How It All Started

Auswide started out as a small bricklaying team. Marty started as a bricklayer but also studied certificate 4 building. He won apprentice of the year in 2005 and 2006 and immediately founded his first company after his apprenticeship. Marty and the team worked all over Australia in Sydney, Canberra, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Perth, South Coast NSW, and Western Queensland – hence the name Auswide.

Today, the Auswide Building Group includes not only our custom home building company but an innovative tool and building supply company and up to 10 bricklaying teams working at any one time. Marty has created not only a bricklaying company but a building group that is driven to build a reputation that no matter how large we grow is still Auswide.

Many on our management team can to this day be found laying bricks on site to ensure we deliver on time and marty can often be seen, earbuds in on the phone to a supplier while working along side employees that have been with us for over 10 years.
