Graeme Street Founding Director
Graeme Street founded the business in 1998, after a successful and diverse construction career spanning 20 years. Having gained valuable experience working for a diverse group of companies including Civil & Civic, Triden Contractors & New England Constructions, Graeme decided it was time to start up his own venture.
From day one, the business was set up with a quality service mentally, industry best practice procedures, strong business ethics and an unwavering desire to go that extra mile to ‘get it right’ for the client. His focus was on establishing the reputation of Streetbuild as a trusted business partner and becoming a leader in the field of retail construction and refurbishment.
After leading the Streetbuild team as Managing Director for 20 years, in July 2019, Graeme handed over the MD role to co-owner, Timothy Gagen who is now responsible for the efficient running of the business on a day-to-day basis. Graeme has now taken a more ‘helicopter view’ of the business, looking at how best to continue providing our clients with the results and outcomes that surpass their expectations and to provide continuing opportunity for our staff to grow in their careers.
Graeme is passionate about developing our people in-house and enjoys the opportunity to mentor staff, assisting with their development in construction expertise and business acumen and being instrumental in providing a pathway to meet their short and longer-term aspirations.
Our people tend to stay with us, and this has many positives for all, particularly in the area of past learnings from particular types of projects/clients/industries. These learnings are then easily employed on subsequent projects resulting even better outcomes for our repeat clients in the fields of retail and education, of which there are many.
Graeme is the majority shareholder and continues to be very actively involved at both Board and Operations level. He continues to derive great satisfaction and pride in the ongoing development and expansion of the Streetbuild business and its team.
