About Us

Genuine Building Services Pty Ltd.

Genuine Building Services (GBS) was started by Peter Ginns in 2007. He started working as a Carpenter in 1992 and it was a natrural progression for him to become a builder. The business was started to supply a genuine approach to building (hence the name of the company) and to build trust with both clients and subcontractors. Peter had worked as both a subcontract carpenter and foreman and realised that customer service and quality at a reasonable price was hard to come by, and saw the demand for a builder able to provide an open and honest relationship with their clients.

GBS was initially based in Annandale and moved to Gladesville in January 2014. As such we do most of our work in the surrounding areas including the Inner West and lower to mid North Shore.

GBS has awards for winning the Master Builders Association Excellence in Housing Awards for House Additions/Alterations/Renovations in the $1m to $1.2m price category for 2018 and the $450,001 to $550,000 price category for 2014. In addition Peter Ginns was one of four finalists in the Master Builders Association of NSW Young Builder of the Year award for 2014.

GBS has achieved a lot since establishment and has the dedication and determination to continue along this path and continue to offer a quality, genuine service to its clients going forward. GBS has many satisfied customers, and their referrals provide the majority of our work.
