There is a theme running through Mavid’s three wins at the 2016 MBA Awards: safety – in design, construction and the “Mavid way”.
The Newcastle/Hunter based company took out Bathroom of the Year, Custom Built Home of the Year ($700,000-$1million, for a house completed at Bolwarra Heights), and the SafeWork NSW Excellence in Work Health and Safety Award - Small Business Housing Builder.
It was the second year in three that Mavid has claimed the MBA safety award, having won in 2014. In 2015, they went one better and took out the state title.

Coincidentally, the house at Bolwarra Heights is called “Moonyah”, an Aboriginal word meaning “safe house”.
“To be considered an industry leader in safety is pretty important to Mavid,” Rebecca Sharpe, wife of company owner Matt, said. “We use cloud-based systems. It’s very tech savvy. Matt has had the vision and know-how to match up computer programs that work best for our company and it’s been instrumental in the growth of the business.”
From modest beginnings five years ago, Mavid now works on upwards of 200 homes per year.
“It’s a credit to the systems,” Rebecca said. “It has been developed in an easy-to-use way that works for a single house but can equally be applied to larger jobs further afield like a 44-unit project currently under construction at Port Macquarie.
“Another exciting project we are about to begin is a 42-residence, over-55s village at Adamstown.”
Having set the platform for safety, innovation, quality and speed, Mavid have recognized an opportunity in the market place to produce quality homes at record pace where the client can enjoy the whole process.
“Mavid is well-known for its multi-dwelling/unit construction and probably not as well-known for its individual house construction,” Rebecca said. “We are in the process of drawing up plans for a selection of branded ‘Mavid Homes’, which we hope to bring to the market by next year.
“Off the back of the custom home award we hope to showcase the extensive range of product we are capable of producing and offering the market place a quality product, built in most cases in half the time of our competitors.”
Mavid have forged a reputation for successfully completing complex projects using their highly skilled personnel, innovative ideas and cost-effective solutions to overcome challenges whilst maintaining a high level of safety, quality and environmental management.
“We are very close knit,” Rebecca said. “Matt works with driven individuals, focused on details, from office staff through to the site guys; team players, committed to creating great products.
“Matt understands all the roles because he’s been there and the team he puts together reflects the Mavid way.”
Design and innovation are part of that way, as evidenced by the MBA wins.
The bathroom, featuring imaginative use of ceasar stone on the walls, and the Moonyah build, again featuring innovative use of ceasar stone and other more traditional materials, are proof positive of that, highlighting to all that Mavid can bring design and high-end finish to clients.
“We love the awards,” Rebecca said. “You go in with fingers crossed for something, and every year you are amazed at the high calibre of entrants that produce such amazing products. The quality of the builds in Newcastle and the Hunter is exceptional. To win in such a competitive market is really rewarding and makes it all worthwhile.”
