Our operations extend across Victoria and throughout South Eastern Queensland, and encompass all aspects of design, development and construction.
The Glenvill Group has grown—like any construction project—from the ground up, building a reputation for artistry, refined architectural design, progressive thinking and quality that is anything but ordinary.
Beginning more than six decades ago as Glenvill Homes, the company today encompasses three divisions: a major construction business specialising in large-scale medium density projects; a property development business delivering multi-residential and mixed use communities; and an expanded housing business offering high-end customised residences, affordable town homes, and house and land packages tailored to investors.
Along the way, we have built more than 10,000 homes, delivered more than 60 projects and developments, collaborated with some the of country’s most creative minds, and become Australia’s most awarded builder. Our people have always been the driving force behind that success, and we continually invest in the ongoing development of our team and the promotion of a work culture that attracts and nurtures outstanding talent.
We are three individual businesses driven by a common purpose and shaped by shared values. Progressive, empathetic and committed to excellence, we work as one to enrich people’s lives by delivering exceptional places to live. Our success is underpinned by creativity; our reputation built on unwavering integrity; and our status as an employer of choice, indicative of a highly professional workplace with a strong sense of fun.
Although Len has a finance background, he is a creative at heart. His career started at Ernst and Young in a range of roles, culminating as the Supervisor of the Insolvency Division.
In 1984 Len made the shift to join his family’s homebuilding business, Glenvill, which was in a downturn at the time. In his capacity as General Manager, he went about overhauling everything from operations to sales, before being appointed as CEO. Under his strategic leadership, Glenvill was restructured, rebranded and grew to encompass multiple specialised, market-leading businesses within the newly formed Glenvill Group. Still taking a hands-on approach, Len puts his self-taught architect and interior designer skills to use, as well as acting as the Creative Director for the Group.

Creating housing has been our passion for more than six decades. It’s also been the focus of our philanthropic initiatives, and we take great pride in helping organisations tackle the issue of homelessness, here and abroad.
The help we provide typically takes the form of financial support, to give people in need the safe haven and certainty that is missing from their lives. In the case of Lighthouse Foundation, Glenvill CEO, Len Warson, wanted to make a more far-reaching contribution, and in 2021 accepted the position of Lighthouse Foundation Chairman.
Established in 1991, the foundation provides homes and therapeutic care to children and young people impacted by long-term neglect, abuse and homelessness. By creating a caring community, the organisation gives homeless kids and foster families a place to belong, heal and thrive.
As Chairman, Len’s ambition is to help the organisation do more than provide additional support for vulnerable kids; he wants to change the way the problem is viewed, and eliminate it altogether.
Our greatest contribution to the environment comes not from meeting industry standards, but determining how best to surpass them.
