Anton Smith

Anton comes from a farming family originally from Eradu near Geraldton. Despite his rural upbringing, Anton always knew he was destined to work in the building industry. From an early age he enjoyed drawing plans and building structures of all kinds and descriptions. After graduating from Aquinas College, Anton did one last stint working on the land. However, after a year he was drawn to the industry he loves.

Anton now has nearly 30 years working in the building industry. Starting out as a labourer, then a carpenter and then supervising for several different building companies to gain invaluable experience.

Since starting Bluewater Building Co in 2007 Anton has developed a reputation for delivering high quality projects both on budget and on time. His reputation for understanding the needs, desires and concerns of his clients is reflected in the relationships he has built that have lasted long after clients homes are completed. Anton has demonstrated his ability to continuously deliver unique builds over the years under Bluewater Building Co and his many MBA & HIA building awards are a testament to this.

Anton is a former board member of the Southwest Master Builders Association and Our Lady of The Cape Primary School. Anton is an active member of the local community contributing to many local sporting clubs and as a volunteer for the Wildcare part of the Dept. of Parks and Wildlife.

While at Cape Naturaliste College Traegis completed certificates in Engineering and a Plumbing pre-app which gave him the opportunity to start a Plumbing & Gas Fitting apprenticeship in 2015. Working on custom homes for many well-known builders such as Bluewater Building, including other residential, commercial and industrial work locally in the Southwest.

Gaining valuable skills in coordinating works, liaising with clients and contractors to complete projects while working as a Coordinator, and background of trade experience working as a Plumber.

Lewis Wood

Lewis was born in Scotland and moved to Australia at a young age, growing up in the city, before moving to the southwest at 19 and completing his apprenticeship as a carpenter. He is very motivated towards continually expanding his knowledge in the building and construction industry and has a real love for good design.

After graduating from Hale in 2009 he enrolled at UWA to start a degree in Architecture and after a year of this, realised a more hands on approach was best suited for his personality. Exposed to business from a young age through his parents, naturally, after finishing his apprenticeship, Lewis decided to start his own Carpentry business in the southwest. He sought to express his love for design through the carpentry he was able to take on.

After running his business for 3 years, Lewis decided it wasn’t giving him the freedom he thought it would and sold everything to set off traveling. After a year away he returned home due to the situation with COVID and worked in the mines for a year as a lead hand carpenter saving for a house. When Anton offered him the role with us as a project co-ordinator, he decided he couldn’t say no to the opportunity to gain invaluable experience the role would offer.
