When Matt and Jenn Pocock established Pocock Building Company in 2010 they wanted to create a residential building company that combined their passions for custom home design, personalised customer service and high quality workmanship. Your home, your designs, your decisions (with a little help from us) is the essence of this passion and drives how we do business at Pocock Building. It is also the reason why Pocock Building has earned its reputation throughout Albany, Denmark and Mount Barker as a premium builder who delivers stunning homes to their clients. Please visit our Testimonials page if you'd like to hear exactly what our clients have to say.

- Supporting Albany youth and the future of the building and construction industry through our apprenticeship program. We currently employ two carpentry apprentices and a painting apprentice
