Danrae Group features on Kochie’s Business Builders

Danrae Group prides itself on expert waterproofing for sectors including strata, commercial, government and civil. Our customers are more than happy with our comprehensive project management and permanent waterproofing solutions. And when others notice, that’s a bonus.

We were thrilled to this week appear on Channel 7’s Kochie’s Business Builders – an online program that features the latest news and opinions from David Koch on how to set up and successfully grow a small business.

As Kochie explained, most businesses fail to scale up into industry leaders. Kochie invited us to participate – and be a great example of, in his words, “a waterproofing business scaling new heights.” Credit: Channel 7 – Kochie’s Business Builders @kochiesbiz

Scaling New Heights

Daniel Caruana, Danrae Group CEO, visited Kochie on set for Sunday’s program (here’s the video). He spoke about our waterproofing services for large scale projects including IKEA and Westmead Hospital, our specialities including waterproofing and remedial works for flat roofs, and our core clients that include consultant engineers, strata managers and property managers.

He also explained to Kochie how we’ve grown from a small family business to an industry leader – that’s still family focused – with the help of a first-class website, a business growth consultant and regular social media engagement.

When the discussion turned to the impact of COVID-19, Daniel explained that the key is to have a clear focus on your end objective.

“If you’ve got a clear end goal, the things that happen in between don’t affect you as much,” he said. “My end goal is to create a business that creates a future for our people.” And to do that, we’re committed to nurturing our outstanding team, providing quality services… and exceptional customer solutions.

Focused on first-class customer solutions

Ultimately, scaling up to become an industry leader means having the expertise and the passion to deliver first-class customer solutions.

We take a holistic approach to waterproofing that includes diagnostic, solution design, remediation and preventative maintenance. While we design and implement quality solutions for many clients with existing leaks or issues such as concrete cancer, we can also onboard for new construction.

As Kochie, commented, Danrae’s sustained growth is “a great story, with great advice for us all.” We’re more than happy to be a great example to other businesses looking to grow through success.

So, contact us for expert waterproofing from the industry leader… and a company that lives and breathes waterproofing.
