Heath Tournier Contractors is owned and directed by Heath Tournier. Heath grew up in Geelong and understands the town, the community and the developments taking place in the area. He completed an electrician apprenticeship in 2004 and at the age of just 22 started his own electrical business. This was the beginning of the thriving business HTC has become today.
Growth: we now have five divisions
Heath has spent the last 16 years studying to obtain licenses in each of the service areas HT Contractors operates.
The electrical business expanded quickly into air conditioning and then the plumbing and gas fitting division was added. The solar power branch came next, followed by the excavation services to round out our ‘one stop tradesman shop’. Our Geelong team is made up of qualified tradesmen who have been hand-trained by Heath himself. We do not subcontract work out. We do this for quality control to ensure our customers receive the same high standard of service every time.
Timeline of achievements
In 2004 the electrical business in Geelong developed a solid customer base by offering a reliable, next-day service. We also began getting repeat work with several turnover builders as well as high-end builders. Our electricians completed electrical installations in Geelong and other parts of the state for over 1000 new homes. HTC now works in both the domestic and commercial sectors and the electrical branch of the business continues to grow.
In 2005 we began offering an air-conditioning service to our customers and our builders. We have since installed, serviced and repaired hundreds of air-conditioning systems. We pride ourselves on the ability to supply customers with leading brand air-conditioners at the most competitive supply and install prices.
In 2008 we started our plumbing and gas-fitting division in Geelong and started adding drainage work to our portfolio. This helped us develop a competitive advantage in the new home and renovation markets because we could offer many services which cut the headaches out of organising various trades on a project.
In 2009 our excavating branch really took off after several builders asked us to undertake the excavation and site cut works on our jobs. We now have excavators of different sizes to carry out site cuts, electrical undergrounds, sewer and stormwater drains and tip trucks for dirt removal services.
In 2010 our solar power installation began and we have installed hundreds of solar hot water and solar power systems for domestic projects in Geelong. We supply leading-brand solar panels at very competitive prices and offer quality installations by licensed and accredited installers who understand how to get the best out of these products.
In 2012 we ventured into LED lighting and are now selling LED lights in Geelong directly to our clients. We can offer great deals on new installations when replacing existing halogen downlights with LED downlights. LED lights are the way of the future, as they save money on your power bills and they are much kinder to the environment, meaning they will soon be a requirement in all new homes.
Today at Heath Tournier Contractors, we have successfully completed several unit lot developments, hundreds of new home builds, many renovations and also currently undertake several maintenance contracts on accommodation sites and apartment complexes and offer many property maintenance services to our real estate customers. In the commercial sector, we have completed medical centres, factories, gymnasiums, primary schools and aged care facilities, and are continuing to take on bigger commercial projects in our five service fields.
We offer competitive prices on each of our individual services and special package deal prices for clients who employ us for several services on the one project in Geelong.
