About Us


1973: the beginning. Paul East began his love of building in Warragamba (Sydney) as an apprentice carpenter with one mission — to be a trusted local builder.

1980: the reputation. After completing his apprenticeship, Paul continued as a self-employed contractor, gaining experience in all forms of building including renovations, commercial construction and small projects like outdoor entertainment spaces.

1986–7: the re-location. Paul and his wife Helen and their two young sons made the move to Queensland where he was quickly recognised for his quality workmanship.

1992: the turning point. Paul became a registered builder with the QBSA and began building custom homes as well as many extensions, renovations and alterations.

2006: the next generation. Paul and Helen’s son Brad became Paul’s apprentice and now works alongside him as his right-hand. Paul with his experience and Brad with his youthful approach always get the job done to the highest standard.

Today: the new beginning. Two Generations of builders, 18 custom homes, 12 commercial properties later, Paul East Building and Contracting is now almost a household name on the Gold Coast. Home was the first call. Home is still the Number One priority, because home is where the heart is.
