2014 Northern Territory Medium Business Award winner
A commitment to build eco-efficient housing for the Territories’ tropical climate has seen a business established by brothers Michael and Damien Moriarty rapidly gain strong market share and a haul of industry awards. In little under nine years Killarney Homes - funded by the duo’s combined life savings - has captured more than nine per cent of the residential housing market in Darwin, Palmerston and Litchfield. Damien says Killarney Homes’ success lies with its leadership in building energy and resource efficient homes and its emphasis on establishing trusting relationship with its customers. Until last year, growth was organic but it has since received a boost from a strategic three year plan. The company, which builds off-the-shelf and custom designed homes, has won more than 60 industry awards and was the first Northern Territory builder to become a finalist in the Display Home Category of the Australian Greensmart Awards.
