ABOUT Wightman Building Company
WBC has been a family-owned construction company in Margaret River for more than 27 years. Founded in 1990 by Gary Wightman, the company has spent nearly 3 decades growing and evolving to meet market demands. Through the work and vision of Gary and his wife Shelley, Wightman Building Company is now a widely recognised and respected construction company in Margaret River and throughout greater Western Australia.
Growth & Development in Western Australia
Perhaps the greatest evolution of WBC began in 1999, when Design and Construct mode became the future market and Gary realized that the demand for the total service outside of the broad Project Home product was untapped.
With the help of Peter Lea and his amazing design talents, WBC grew exponentially over the next decade.
After many years of success in the Southwest, Gary looked North for new challenges and found bountiful opportunity in the Pilbara. The footprint of WBC projects in Port Hedland is easily identified by residents and appreciated for the impact they have had on the town.
WBC is currently looking to the future opportunities in the Southwest as multilevel construction becomes a more in-demand product.
