Leading the way in green construction.

Driving positive change.

Sustainability is a fundamental part of our operating model. Ethos Building & Restoration are the only Master Builders Green Living accredited insurance builder in Victoria. We adopt industry best practices for sustainability and are constantly seeking further initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of the claims we manage. We have established our own waste management facility that facilitates the repurposing of salvaged materials. In addition, we recycle/redirect landfill waste removed from our sites, including concrete masonry, timber, glass, plasterboard and metal. Recycling/redirecting from landfills is not only beneficial for the environment, but it also reduces the overall cost of claims as the expense of waste disposal is rapidly increasing.

"What I really liked about Ethos was the regular updating of progress, and I'm very happy with the completed job. Special thanks to Travis."


"When I received the claim the Insured’s, an elderly couple, were very distressed due to the inaction from previous parties. Nonetheless, I immediately allocated Ethos who have gone above and beyond since the claim has been allocated.  Aaron offered to call the customer direct and because of this we have managed to restore the Insured’s faith in (us)  and their trust in the claim process.  Please note this is just one of many positive comments I’ve received from Ethos and just wanted to pass this one on as the Insured also requested we pass on the positive feedback as well."
