Who We Are

The Passion supporting your Project


Our Story - How we got started

We are Jon and Carey Ward, the stable platform for Housing101, with our business partner Tony Long.  Jon has a Degree in Applied Science (Building and Quantity Surveying) and has 40+ years of working across the entire building industry.

In Cairns he worked on a number of projects including project managing the Park Royal (now known as The Pulman) in 1986 to 1989 and then on to project manage, the Rhode Island Resort on the Gold Coast. 

In 1995, Jon established his own business, where he developed a conference centre and created a community scheme subdivision for a large resort.  As part of this operation, Jon won the contract to host the Ukraine Paralympic Team and the Ukraine Deaf Olympic Team.  This began the passion to help people with special needs.  

Over the next 15 years, Jon hosted many groups such as Camp Quality, the Wheelchair Basketball Teams, Cooinda House Family Camps and the Small Stature Association Reunions.  This repeat business of special needs groups exemplifies our understanding of the requirements needed to help accommodate the disabled community. 

Tony Long, qualified in urban and regional planning, is currently working on low cost, no cost housing for the Sunshine Coast Health Foundation, again demonstrating the team’s commitment to helping the vulnerable into safe housing.

Jon Ward and Tony Long, have an extensive knowledge base in building, design, town planning, urban design, development and most importantly of all, problem solving.  Often engaged to solve the difficulty of affordable accommodation, we pride ourselves in our flexibility, our problem-solving capabilities and our accessible designs.

Our passion is to provide safe and secure accessible housing for all.  Our future is based on our commitment to being the most trusted builder of accessible, SDA compliant granny flats and secondary dwellings.

We look forward to helping you put your ideas onto paper and helping you to make them a reality.
