Rossdale Homes

Rossdale Homes is one of South Australia’s most respected builders, a proud family company that has been building award-winning homes since 1980.

Rossdale’s commitment to value and quality in housing owes much to the dedication and experience of its energetic founders, Craig and Ross Robinson.

In mid-2007, Giles French, in conjunction with other local business identities, took over the reins to retain the local ownership focus that has enabled Rossdale to remain a South Australian family-owned company. The company currently employs more than 70 people locally with over 400 active subcontractors.

While Rossdale have won many awards over the years, the company’s focus remains firmly on providing quality and value in housing to its customers. And nowhere is this more obvious than in the unique “fixed price guarantee”, a price that really is fixed.

Building an energy efficient home means more than installing the right appliances or adding a rainwater tank. At Rossdale Homes, the goal of building energy efficient homes shapes the design and construction process, from site orientation to solar panels.

Rossdale Homes was chosen as the major builder for Australia’s first 7.5 star energy efficiency new home village – the highly acclaimed Lochiel Park development at Campbelltown.
