Wednesday night, the 5th June saw a room full of Building Industry including designers, builders, trades, consultants, council, past and present clients and media come together to celebrate the launch of Open Warehaus.
Open Warehaus marks the beginning of a series of invite only events, think tanks ranging from larger events to intimate long tables. An innovative step taken by relatively young building company Built Ink to build a discussion for the state’s future. It also marked the 5th birthday of the Company.
‘See at Built Ink we understand to create change it starts with a discussion, to create business it starts with a connection that then builds into trust, to create a sustainable partnership means to create business that benefits both parties mutually’ explains Business Development Manager Cara Little, who initiated the series as a new way to discuss business while networking.
‘Business isn’t what it used to be’ says Built Ink Director Michael Little who mentioned that ‘we are all in this wedge together and it that has squeezed all involved in the space to think smarter, work more efficiently, take on more volume for less margin, re-negotiate overheads and expenses and run very, very lean’.
The night welcomed guests into an orange lit industrial warehouse recently completed by Built Ink. They then enjoyed the company of fellow colleagues while drinking Wise Wines, eating delicate canapes, tasting Sin Gin all while the latest electric Jaguar I-Pace and Land Rovers were on show thanks to sponsor Barbagallo. Hanson Concrete, also a key sponsor on the night who recently secured a long term partnership with Built Ink, completed the event with a big Concrete Truck.
Commonwealth Bank also came onboard as major sponsors seeing the industrial scene within WA as an area gaining great grounds in the economic climate.
The night was a huge success and saw Built Ink cement itself as a new and upcoming builder in the industrial construction game. ‘I gauge the success on the night by the conversations that are had afterwards and so far they have been fantastic’ explains Mrs Little. ‘So good that we have had many want to be involved in the next series instalment, which indicates to me relationships are being formed and that to me is all I can ask for’.
