Inclusivity builds opportunity

AWB Building Co principal Graeme Kennedy cites the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme as the key driver of his decision to set up his business three years ago.

AWB, which now has more than 20 full-time staff, specialises in the design, refurbishment and maintenance of inclusive environments, with the business turning over $15 million in the last financial year, according to Mr Kennedy.

Leveraging past disability refurbishment experience, Mr Kennedy said he had noticed a shortage of local builders targeting this space, particularly after the NDIS came into effect.
