We build better

More than just insurance building specialists.

Motivated to do better

You’ll never hear us justify a decision by saying “we’ve always done it that way” – because that’s the easy path. Instead, our management team looks for smart project management systems and construction techniques to eliminate inefficiencies and find the approach best suited to your project.

So whether we’re working with new sustainable materials or exploring the latest construction management software, you can guarantee we’re invested in innovation. This approach coupled with our appreciation for traditional craftsmanship means we have all the skills to exceed your expectations.

Meet your building team

Troy Adams

Troy Adams

Managing Director

Troy founded Realm in 2017 with a determination to build with integrity. Having grown up in the country, he believes that being open and honest are the key traits of a great builder, and this down-to-earth attitude sets the standard for our team.

Being a builder means more to Troy than bricks and mortar. He spent a lot of his childhood watching his father work as an electrician, and saw from a young age the satisfaction of being part of the build process. Today, he is motivated to build homes that will stand for generations, and he supports our team to continually develop their skills, so we always give you the best craftsmanship.

When he is not working, Troy is just as comfortable on the sidelines of a footy game as he is in a five-star restaurant.

Michael Walsh

Michael Walsh

These principles are not just professional for Michael; they are deeply personal, ensuring our work exceeds expectations. 

Beyond being a leader, Michael is deeply involved in every project phase, ensuring each space uniquely reflects its users.

This holistic approach ensures that every project under his guidance is not only well-crafted but also infused with a distinct character.

Gary Bowers

Gary Bowers

Operations Manager

With his sharp memory, Gary is the kind of person who can hold a conversation on just about anything. He has travelled to over 60 countries, knows a surprising amount about sharks and reads widely.

Gary has worked on globally renowned buildings including the Royal Opera House in London, but his true interest is in architectural homes. That’s because he describes himself as being ‘construction-obsessed’, and working on residential projects allows him to oversee every detail – from planning and project management right through to handover.

With his ability to explain the construction process in a straightforward, step-by-step manner, Gary ensures you understand every stage of your build. He believes in treating every home the same way he’d treat his mother’s house, and that means always taking his boots off at the door and doing the work right the first time.

Philip Gabriel

Philip Gabriel

Project Manager

Even though Philip has worked in the industry for more than 30 years, he is still motivated by the same thing: seeing a client happy at the end of a project. As our Project Manager, Philip makes sure your home build goes smoothly, and he takes immense pride in ensuring each element comes together as planned.

Philip loves being kept on his toes by the fast-paced nature of construction, making sure that when things change, he imparts his years of know-how to keep the project moving forward. He knows that planning is just as important as problem solving, and is a driver of innovation in our team.

Philip loved building things as a kid and he still lives and breathes what he does. Even when he’s not at work, you’ll usually find him outside landscaping his home.
