Our Journey

Where we’ve come from …

The JWH Group was established in 2003, but our building pedigree dates back to the 1980s when founder Julian Walter first began building houses for Western Australians.

A pioneer who has always seen the bigger picture, Julian built his business on traditional values.

On integrity, humility, trust and pride-in-the-job.

On deals done on a handshake.

Over the years, Julian’s energies, values and vision have shaped a proudly unique group of residential building companies.

Some of our brands have been around longer than us and we’ve welcomed them into our family with open arms.

Take Plunkett Homes for example. One of WA’s best-known homebuilders, Plunkett Homes has been building homes since 1903.

Where we’re going …

As the next generation of JWH Group leaders, Jay Walter and Alicia Kelly have their sights set firmly on the future.

Forward-thinking, innovative and hands-on, they’re not afraid to put new ways of thinking to the test while upholding the family values the JWH Group has been built on. 

Just like their father, Jay and Alicia know it’s a privilege to build homes that not only provide essential shelter, but that help create lasting memories. Homes that people can be proud of. That fit their lifestyle and their life stage.
