Company overview

Pask is a leading Australian developer with a legacy of over 100 successful developments that thousands of Australians call home.

Established for over 50 years, the Group’s reputation is built on consistently delivering premium residential communities in both Queensland and Victoria. We’ve evolved beyond greenfield developments with retail, commercial medium-density housing and boutique apartment projects now forming part of our portfolio.

As a family-owned and operated business, we have stayed true to the vision of our founder, Nev Pask, fostering a culture that promotes excellence and a commitment to quality. Our customers buy with confidence, knowing that over half a century of experience is invested in every project. We take a hands-on approach, creating places with exceptional amenity that our buyers love to call home.

Our method has always been to carefully select premier sites and work closely with a dedicated team of award-winning professionals and government stakeholders, turning our vision into reality and always keeping our promises.

Places for Generations

Regardless of what project we take on, our purpose remains the same: to create memorable places for generations.

We create the building blocks for each neighbourhood by carefully combining all of the necessary ingredients for each location – innovative urban design, sustainable engineering and landscaping solutions, local amenities and unsurpassed quality building standards – creating and breathing life into spaces that are as functional as they are beautiful. Each project has a unique personality that comes from working closely with stakeholders and responding to the natural attributes of each site.

Pask always strives to deliver community and recreational facilities in our communities as early as possible. We work with the best designers and take inspiration from local artists to create signature sculptures and public art for our parks and entrances, as well as delivering neighbourhood shopping precincts within our developments.

It is this desire to carefully consider and respond to the needs of every community, now and into the future, that has enabled our projects to be recognised as the premium estates in their local area.

The importance we place on both current and future generations is further reflected in our financial sustainability. We take pride in meeting our obligations and have specific criteria that we adhere to before selecting and developing our projects.

Our customers and stakeholders can take comfort knowing that we will always meet our commitments.

Heritage

Our founder, Nev Pask, was recognised as one of Australia’s most respected property developers and businessmen, receiving the Centenary Medal and the UDIA 2015 Allen Vogen Distinguished Service Award. Together with his wife Barbara, they were a formidable team and created a remarkable legacy.

Born in the shadow of the Great Depression and living through WW2, they were part of a unique generation of Australians; hard working, resilient and independent. They were great savers and lived well within their means in times that were often very difficult, particularly in those early years.

Nev seemed to naturally possess the ‘ingredients’ to be a successful entrepreneur and although he did not start his career in the property industry until relatively late in life, his early farm life, work ethic and ‘apprenticeships’ in running a number of small businesses invested him with what he thought was the greatest degree anyone could have; common sense.

After spending his early childhood in Brisbane, his family moved to Mt Larcom where he worked on the family farm as well as undertaking various seasonal work such as cane cutting and wool pressing. He left home and moved to Sydney when he was 18 and always managed to find work, ranging from various factory jobs to lithographic printing. Nev also found time to pursue a promising amateur boxing career.

After many years of saving Nev bought a run down dry cleaning business and then a milk run. After building up and then selling these businesses, Nev returned with his family to Queensland in the late 1960’s and settled on the Redcliffe Peninsula, where he bought a caravan park and real estate agency, Evans Real Estate. He quickly turned around the underperforming agency and his down to earth country charm, love of a good laugh and ability to relate to anyone meant he had found his niche in property.

His development career also started in Redcliffe and gradually expanded to developing residential in South East Queensland, with Arise at Rochedale perhaps representing his proudest achievement in the industry.

Nev also made a significant contribution to various philanthropic causes, particularly at Redcliffe, including his ongoing work and patronage for over 40 years with the Police Citizen’s Youth Club, which provided him with great satisfaction in helping many young men find their way.

No one achieves anything by themselves and he could not have built the business without the support of his wife, family, his loyal team at Pask Group as well as the professionals and colleagues from private practice and government that he worked with over so many years, many of whom became good friends. He mentored so many people in and outside of the industry, who have continued to follow his philosophies to achieve their own success.

Managing Director, Dean Pask, who expanded and diversified the group’s operations in Victoria, continues to respect the company’s legacy and build upon the reputation of Pask for the next generation, supported by a dedicated and experienced team.

We are proud of our heritage and are unwavering in our commitment to our customers and stakeholders. We will continue to deliver premium communities to be enjoyed for generations to come.

Specialist Partners

In addition to the efforts of our team we engage specialist organisations and contractors who help us to continue to set benchmarks in urban engineering and landscape design, architecture, civil construction, and community facilities.

From the landscape architects who design the parks, streetscapes and entrance statements, to the artists and artisans who create the signature sculptures and public art, through to the dedicated consultants, contractors and builders who design and build our developments, we rely on the expertise and skills of these specialist and talented partners to complement those of our internal team.

We foster and encourage long-term relationships with our specialist partners and service providers and celebrate with them the successful delivery of each new project. We also work closely and value the contribution of all government and authority stakeholders in playing an integral role in helping us to shape every new community.

Environment & Sustainability

Pask recognises the importance of environment and sustainability in securing the future for the next generation. We believe it is our responsibility to create communities that are sensitive to their social and natural environments.

This approach has resulted in initiatives such as our Living Design Guidelines, which encourage our residents to achieve higher levels of building and sustainable design that echo our investment in parklands, wetlands and community facilities across our projects.

Administered by specialist architects, our design guidelines encourage quality, innovative and energy-efficient homes and include mandatory requirements that ensure everyone meets the same high standards.

During the planning and construction phases, we aim to reduce our environmental impact where ever possible and have a track record of encouraging the preservation, improvement and introduction of nature reserves, wildlife corridors and award- winning parklands within our developments.

At Montruse Estate, Calamvale, over 40 per cent of the total site area is an environmental reserve. An extensive swale network at the Sunshine Coast’s Chancellor Park provides natural filtration, enabling rainwater to soak back into the ground with overflow being cleansed prior to entering the lake system.

We worked closely with the neighbouring school at Providence, Greenvale in creating wetlands to create an environmental learning facility for students.

At Sovereign Crest, Rowville, the local platypus habitat was protected and rehabilitated to provide an eco reserve that exists in harmony with the community, while Arise at Rochedale is home to extensive wildlife and waterway corridors and is a showcase for water-sensitive urban design.

Bankside, Rowville has received full Envirodeveloper certification from the Urban Development Institute of Australia, with the local waterway undergoing extensive rehabilitation.

In addition to our commitment to environment and sustainability, we have also sought to preserve the character and heritage of the local areas where we build new communities. At both our Sanctuary and Circa 1886 estates, we carefully designed surrounding precincts to respect the heritage-protected homesteads so they remain a focal point within each community and survive as important local landmarks for future generations. We have also undertaken an extensive renovation to restore an Italianate residence, dating back to the late 1800’s, which was thoughtfully integrated with the adjoining luxury apartments at our Millswyn project in South Yarra.
