About Us

BGT Developments is a widely acclaimed developer with an illustrious history of success spanning over two decades in the realm of residential subdivisions. While our company has been operational for more than ten years, our visionary founder, Brian Gillett, has been personally involved in private land development since 2002. Over this extensive period, we have taken immense pride in curating a diverse portfolio featuring exceptional residential and lifestyle sections, as well as townhouses, catering to families in Australia and New Zealand.

The exceptional quality of our work is clearly evident in the triumphant sales, construction, and delivery of over 140 homes. In some instances, we have undertaken comprehensive development projects, encompassing the design and construction of all essential infrastructure such as roads, street lights, footpaths, public open spaces, and supporting amenities. In other cases, we have undertaken complete property development, right down to the final touches like letterboxes and landscaping.

At the core of our operations resides a team of seasoned professionals, each deeply committed to crafting thriving communities that harmonise with the demands of contemporary living. We hold great reverence for close collaboration with local governments and stakeholders, recognising the significance of surpassing expectations and ensuring that our developments transcend mere adequacy, ultimately culminating in the creation of highly sought-after communities.

Here at BGT Developments, we wholeheartedly grasp the profound importance of acquiring a parcel of land as one of life's most momentous investments. This responsibility is approached with unwavering seriousness and dedication, as we strive to provide our esteemed clients with an exceptional and gratifying experience throughout the entire journey.
