Ramu Farrell (pictured left) has forged an impressive reputation for himself and his company, SRPG, as a leading building company, providing smarter and innovative new homes and renovation solutions.
As a qualified builder in his early twenties, Ramu is privileged to have built new homes among luxurious residential strips. The company’s portfolio also includes an array of monumental renovations, adding significant value with their modern and contemporary finishes.
“I’ve wanted to be a builder since I was eight years old,” Ramu said.
“A friend’s dad was a builder. He had a big house, a great car, and I remember thinking ‘this is what I want’.”
Ramu joined the Australian Industry Trade College (AITC) following a recommendation from his school’s guidance counsellor and within a matter of weeks he had commenced his Certificate III in Carpentry with Careers Australia.
Ramu was a qualified carpenter before his 20th birthday and was quick to enrol into the Diploma of Building and Construction in pursuit of his builder’s licence.
Now fully qualified, Ramu has employed two apprentices who are also completing their industry training and certificate qualification through Careers Australia.
“I highly recommend Careers Australia to anyone wishing to pursue a building career. The Diploma course is a huge advantage – with the smaller classes, I learnt things much faster and I’ve been able to achieve so much.”
With an eye for design, Ramu is also the company’s draftsman, designing homes with architectural flair using the latest technology to provide his clients a 3D perspective of their renovation dreams.
“I really enjoy the architectural design element of my job and I’m looking forward to continuing my studies in this field,” he said.
