Meet The Crew The builders of the operation

Craig and Toby met in year seven at Turramurra High. The idea of running a residential construction company together was first thrown around during year 10 woodwork and it quickly became a goal they were determined to achieve. Since then they have both plied their trades to the highest level.

Craig won the NSW TAFE Margaret Neate Award for achieving first place in his Certificate IV in Building Studies. Toby won the Jim Brookes Australian Apprentice of the Year Award in the final year of his apprenticeship.

After finishing their apprenticeships, Craig¬† went to work as a Foreman at Vicway Constructions and Toby went to work as a carpenter on some of London’s most prestigious residences.

In 2012, we started NewGrain. Find out more about our values here.
