A Close-
Knit Team

Directors Mark O’Grady and Josh King, former high-school friends, started our Kingscliff-based company in 2014. As an electrician and builder respectively, we decided to pool our talents and launch our own building and electrical firm, which holds licences for both trades in NSW and QLD.

In the beginning, we mainly specialised in insurance repairs. Today, with a team of around 20 – ranging from office staff and project managers to tradesmen – we’ve evolved to offer a much wider range of services. High-end homes, renovations and extensions, local council projects, as well as insurance repairs are all part of our ever-expanding portfolio.

As many of us have known each other since high school, we’re a tight team. Mark and Josh were careful to choose the right people, who we were 100% confident would carry out quality work whether on site or in the office. We believe being such a close-knit crew means we care even more about the finished product and our customers’ satisfaction.

We’re a member of the Master Builders Association.

Josh, Mark and their team of contractors went above and beyond during the whole process, from planning right through to completion.  Their knowledge and experience was instrumental to ensuring our home was perfect for our family. They were professional, personable and let us have input during all stages. The end result is a house with impeccable finishes, quality lasting products and comfort knowing we were here every step of the way

From the moment we met Mark and Josh from Desire Contractors we knew we had found our builders.  They made us feel supported and comfortable and we knew they would build us the home of our dreams.  Throughout the entire process the Desire team were easy to get along with, listened and responded appropriately to any of our concerns, and offered suggestions for improvements or cost savings.

Quality is our mantra. Since establishing our company six years ago, growing it from insurance repairs to a wide range of building services, we’ve kept a constant goal in mind: to deliver the highest standards of work in whatever we do.
