Specialised Developments Pty Ltd started as a family business based on the expertise of sole director Adrian Melbourne. He began the journey after high school by doing a Sports Marketing and Management degree in Sydney but always had the interest in property. After being in sales related roles at BMW and NAB Bank he joined a large project builder. There he did construction sales and contracts for various types of builds including standard residential homes, granny flats, custom designs, sloping sites, dual occupancy and multiple dwelling housing projects.
Firsthand experience on client and personal developments enabled Adrian to transition into a full time development business working from home in the Newcastle area. He has a track record of profitable projects that had a conservative approach to risk versus rewards. This approach has given confidence for their investors and buyers alike.
Specialised Developments has professional networks with experts across all required fields of residential developments listed above. This is a key component to achieving the best possible result both financially and relationally on any project. Many times stories are told of development or joint venture disasters that seemed to come from lack of skill, experience or professional contacts who have key insights into the local area.
Adrian’s wife Catherine works in a part-time administration role for a church organisation. Julie Willis-Jones is our office administration assistant.
Adrian is also the director of Garden of Eden Fencing and Landscape Supplies.
