The Two Sides Of Legendary Mick Fabar

If a legend has to be seen in the proper perspective, both personal and entrepreneurial aspects should be analysed in some detail. One of the stalwarts of the Australian business community has been Mick Fabar but his exploits does not stop there, he has carved out a niche for himself in his private capacity too.

It is not everybody that can make an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records even once in a lifetime. To Mick’s credit, he has done so repeatedly. In November 2005 he surpassed the then standing record with 436 punches in a minute. When Englishman Paddy Doyle broke this record, Mick bounded back with 548 punches at an event held at Sydney Football Stadium. Another amazing feat that earned him an entry in the Book was 302 left punches in under a minute followed by 447 hits on a speed ball in the same time. Incredible feats but then, that is Mick for you.

On the business front, Mick is an example of how to go off the beaten track and still make it big. In 2001, he started his own construction company Mick Fabar Constructions and soon achieved high benchmarks of excellence, similar to what he followed in his personal life,. Within a short period of 4 years he had been conferred with an Excellence award by the Master Builders Association for a redevelopment project.

Just when things were running on full steam for Mick, there was a downturn in his business but not because of his own making. A mining boom in Orange saw builders flocking to this small town to bid for construction projects. Most offered unscrupulous cut throat rates. They succeeded in bagging projects without giving a thought to the quality of construction. Mick refused to toe this unethical line and soon branched out into a totally new field of construction by floating a sister concern Green Homes Australia in 2006.

The USP of this company was that it focussed exclusively on energy efficient homes. These could function on lower electricity consumption resulting in reduced energy bills. The features that were incorporated in the building plans included extensive use of solar power, rain water harvesting, passive heating and cooling solutions and optimised recycling applications. To share his expertise with fellow builders, he built two prototype buildings in Orange in 2008 and invited them to pick up knowledge in this field through a franchise model. Over 20 builders participated and soon millions of new homes were being built in Australia based on Mick’s foresight.

Mick’s vision in creating energy efficient homes has been acknowledged with prestigious ISO accreditations – ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001 for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and ISO 50001 for Energy Management Systems. Added to this, any building constructed by Mick Fabar Constructions, whether it is commercial or residential is internationally acknowledged to be an energy efficient building.

No doubt a great tribute to the legend of the construction industry!
