Jarrod Olsen is a master craftsman based in the Southern Highlands, recognised as a builder of high quality, custom built, architecturally designed homes. Jarrod started his building career in Sydney over 30 years ago, honing his skills in Europe before returning to Australia where he completed unique projects on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and North Stradbroke Island, before being invited to the Southern Highlands in 2010 to create the Pepper Tree Creek Estate at Kangaloon. Jarrod and his team have been very fortunate to work on many high-end projects and have always built with the finest finishes and attention to detail.
LUXURY & SUSTAINABILITY
During Jarrod’s professional journey it became evident that traditional building methods needed to be challenged and new techniques applied to improve efficiency and enhance living environments. This ignited Jarrod’s passion in combining exceptional quality with the construction of a high performing building envelope to produce the healthiest indoor living environment. The current Bowral development exemplifies this approach and applies the principles of Passive House design and construction to the Southern Highlands climate and lifestyle.
Jarrod completed his Passive House Tradesperson course in 2017 and has since trained up his own talented team of tradesmen in how to build to the international Passive House Standard. In collaboration with trusted and reliable business partners including; architects, passive house consultants, interior designers, lighting designers and craftsmen, Jarrod wants to ensure quality control at all stages of the project to achieve an end product that has superior results in luxury and sustainability and gives the owner the healthiest indoor climate to live in. Jarrod Olsen & Co are members of Australian Passive House Association and Master Builders Association NSW.
I was introduced to Jarrod through my designer ten years ago and I have been working with him ever since. I have used other builders in the past, but none have come close to Jarrod on many levels. I have completed six major, high-end building projects in recent years and four have been with Jarrod. Jarrod is talented, creative, reliable, hard-working, completely honest and transparent, calm, has a great sense of humour, is a team player and likes to be on the tools, has attention to detail, great problem solving skills and is delightful with a ‘can do’ attitude. As a result of Jarrod’s nature and ability he employs like minded tradesmen who take great pride in what they do and they all have a strong work ethic. I would be happy to talk to potential clients of Jarrod’s and showcase his work at any time in the future, in fact it would be a privilege.
