A passion for excellence

To maintain consistent standards of excellence over a long period of time, it needs to be more than a goal. It must be part of the organisation’s culture, a passion shared by not only the company’s management and employees, but also by its suppliers, sub-contractors and service providers.

This passion for excellence has been evident over Kerdic’s 29 years of existence, recognised by many industry awards for its homes and development projects during that time.

While Kerdic embraces its history, a keen eye always remains on the future with each project seen as an opportunity to showcase its genuine capabilities and build on its proud legacy. Kerdic recognises that you do not have to sacrifice affordability to achieve quality, style and sustainable living.

Along with its traditional developments, Kerdic’s close partnership with Nova Deko Modular in China (www.novadekomodular.com) ensures innovation and affordability remains at the forefront of future development aspirations.

After establishing Kerdic in 1988, Jim immediately set about growing the business which over the years progressed from a local home builder to a developer of master planned communities. Kerdic’s developments now stretch from the Gold Coast to Cairns in far north Queensland as well as interest in international projects.
Kerdic’s success has been brought about largely by Jim’s vision to excel in Kerdic’s various fields of endeavour, whether it be building a home or developing a master-planned community. The vision also saw the development of a vertically integrated supply chain that included manufacturing key elements for the home (e.g. kitchens, bathroom furniture, baths), to complement the group’s development and construction activities.
In 2011, in a strategic move that drew upon the capabilities and skills of both Kerdic Homes and Nova Deko, Jim engineered the manufacturing of prefabricated modular homes by Nova Deko. International demand for these homes is growing at a rapid rate.
Jim’s passions are contagious, resulting in a group of companies that firmly share his vision and drive for innovation and excellence. His outside interests include keeping up with various sports and international affairs.


Sandi (wife of the Kerdic founder, Jim Dickson) is primarily responsible for accounts payable. Sandi joined Kerdic during the earlier years of expansion, after a career in nursing. Sandi’s outside interests revolve around her family and her dogs.

Another long serving member of the Team, Jim’s role includes drafting the plans for our homes and various development projects, from concept to final working drawings. Jim speaks fluent Cantonese, a skill that is used extensively in our communications with our Chinese partners.

One of the original Kerdic employees, Gail manages the finances for the group of companies. Gail has an Australian and International banking background and over Kerdic’s growth years has performed a variety of roles within the company.
