Approach

Defining the
extraordinary

It takes uncommon qualities to achieve the extraordinary.
Vision, dedication, flair, courage.

Extraordinary success opens up all kinds of opportunities in business and in life. It also brings complex changes. Like you, we see the potential where others see only obstacles. We see the bigger picture of what potential can do. Where others are occupied with today, we are planning tomorrow.

We’re dedicated to helping you achieve your potential.

Zag

True achievers aren’t afraid to take a different path. They expect to. They follow their instincts, not the crowd. They believe in new ideas and innovation. In forms and structures that haven’t been seen or made before. And new places too. Vaughans is an organisation of innovators and doers that can capture your possibilities and make them reality. Exceptional service, challenging the norm, without exception.

Our Process

Plan

Get the most efficient building at the most economic cost through Vaughans’ advanced planning of site selection, site layouts and budget estimation. This helps you avoid unnecessary design changes during construction and unwanted blowouts.

Design

Vaughans design team delivers creative and innovative solutions that’s created just for your business. Aesthetic and structural considerations are balanced to give beautiful outcomes while ensuring it remains functionally efficient and is of high investment grade.

Construct

We guarantee the contracted completion date and budget of your project by maintaining constant project supervision and ongoing communication with our clients to adhere to agreed construction schedules.

Courage

To choose the extraordinary takes courage. Experience from decades in business has given us the courage to stand for what we believe in. We call these Our RITES, and they guide all our personnel processes, from recruiting, to training, development, assessment, and working with clients.

Our Rites

Respect

The support and care for each other and our customers.

Integrity

Dealing honestly and openly with each other, our subcontractors, consultants and customers.

Teamwork

Working together to deliver on our promises to each other and our customers.

Efficiency

Maintaining and developing our strong systems approach.

Safety

Scale

You expect vision, commitment, and dedication. Nothing less. So we take time to understand what drives your success and what’s important to you. It may not be the regular or the conventional. Great vision and innovation brings with it the possibility of scale. Access to a deep pool of resources in planning and execution. Access to every possibility, no matter how complex, unusual, or large.

We are a match for every ambition. And we scale new heights every day.
