The Dunstan name has been synonymous with quality construction since Stephen’s father, Ben Dunstan arrived in Torquay with his family in 1957 and started B.F. Dunstan Builders.
Ben Dunstan arrived in Torquay with his family in 1957, B.F. Dunstan Builders was established shortly after and his first house was built on the corner of Cowrie Road and Fisher Street in Torquay 1957. The house remains there today and has a brass plaque embedded in the pavers recognising Ben’s contribution to the town.
Stephen started his apprenticeship at 17 years of age and learned the ropes of the family business, becoming a partner at 24 then taking over the business entirely in later years. Stephen now runs S K Dunstan Builders with wife Lyndsey. In 2016 SK Dunstan moved to their current location in Torquay’s West Coast Business Park the new location is much larger and will allow the business to grow.
Ben instilled in Stephen from a very young age that if you set out to do something then it should be done right. The level of quality in our building is a testament to this mantra. The quality of projects SK Dunstan has built in the Surfcoast hasn’t happened by accident. Years of hard work pushing the boundaries with building techniques, exploring new materials and working with great Architects has culminated in the perfect balance between keeping our client, suppliers and architects happy.
The process of building should be an enjoyable experience, it will not always be easy, but nothing worth achieving has ever been easy.
Our long standing team of trusted, dedicated and professional tradesmen share our vision of providing a high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail, whilst making the building process an enjoyable process.
