When building a new home, one of the most crucial (yet often overlooked) considerations is stability. How long has your builder been established? What’s their track record? How many houses have they built? Are they financially secure? The construction industry is highly competitive, and unfortunately many building companies just don’t make it. In fact, it is not uncommon for builders to declare bankruptcy halfway through a build. In this game of survival of the fittest, unlucky homebuyers can come off second best – so it pays to understand your builder’s stability upfront.
Luckily, Webb & Brown-Neaves is one of WA’s most stable building companies. We’re part of Australia’s leading integrated construction, property and finance group, the Alcock Family of Companies. With decades of proven success and authenticity, they assure the new homes Perth homebuyers move into are built to impeccable quality and value standards.

Webb & Brown-Neaves: The Best of Both Worlds
As part of such a large group, Webb & Brown-Neaves benefits from an enhanced scale of operation including economies of scale, supreme buying power and the ability to attract top shelf employees.
These advantages translate into a range of cost-savings for homebuyers, and a wealth of experience behind every design when building new homes in Perth. Yet despite being able to offer all these big company benefits, we’re still a boutique builder that prides itself on offering a ‘niche’ building experience. At Webb & Brown-Neaves, we only take on a small number of homes per year to ensure we can give each our full attention. This means we’re able to deliver impeccably high standards - every time.
