For Winston and Darren Zhou—the father and son team behind Magico Constructions— the professional satisfaction of doing an incredible job for their clients is the greatest reward.
They love making their business partners, whether architect or property developer, look good in front of their clients by efficiently delivering a quality project. But equally as important is the delight of a homeowner thrilled with their new home, or the gratitude of an investor who sells for a considerable profit.
Winston founded Magico Constructions in 2006 on the belief that every project should be built to the very best quality with care and integrity.
Having worked in the construction industry in excess of 30 years across many countries including Japan and Singapore, he was passionate about attention to detail and high quality finishes. He felt that he could provide a build solution in Australia that was equal to the higher luxury home standards and detailed workmanship he had worked on overseas.
Winston’s ability to complete builds efficiently “just like magic” led to the ‘Magico’ company name and he quickly established a loyal and growing clientele.
A perfectionist in everything he does, Winston often refers to building a home as similar to conducting a wonderful piece of music –taking the original score composed by the architect, and bringing it to life through an orchestra of skilled tradespeople.
Darren Zhou joined the company in 2013, and shares Winston’s ethical values and commitment to constructing buildings that can withstand the test of time.
Darren’s love of construction was fostered as a teenager while working part-time on Magico’s job sites. He observed and was inspired by his father’s pride in completing every task with the best quality finish (even those not at eye-level).
With a Bachelor of Design in Architecture from the University of Technology Sydney, Darren spent some time working in design for a property development company before quickly realising his true passion was on-site building and construction.
Additional Company Director, Peter Zhang is the head of Arrow Steel Engineering, and has over 16 years experience working in steel fabrication and construction, including large-scale projects for KANE Constructions and Taylor Construction Group.
