Gerry was born in the Netherlands where he studied in construction and gained a Diploma in Building. His love of challenge and excitement led him to Australia on a working holiday visa. After many years of working in various construction roles in Perth and regional Australia, Gerry decided it was time to start his own company and Hanssen Pty Ltd commenced in 1992.
The first project for Hanssen was the Lions Eye Institute in Nedlands where Gerry worked closely with Professor Ian Constable AO and his team to design and construct the leading research facility.
From its humble beginnings, Hanssen has since grown to become one of Perth’s leading high rise construction companies with constructing over 5,000 apartments within Perth and in the North West.
The company now includes an in-house design team and engineering consultants and also manufacturing precast panels, steel fabrication and windows which allows the company to build projects quickly and efficiently.
Hanssen design all projects with Bubbledeck™ system for the precast floor panels. Hanssen was the first company to use this system in Australia on the Gateway project in Victoria Park which was completed in June 2010.
Hanssen operate on a design and construct basis whilst also working closely with the developer, architect, consultants, suppliers and contractors.
The company philosophies of "The Job is the Boss" and "Making a Difference" inspires all involved to take great pride in constructing quality projects. Open communication, training, safety, individual accountability and job satisfaction are all integral factors in delivering successful projects.
