Martin Askin

APPRENTICE

Starting out with a criminology degree, Martin realised quickly that wasn’t for him.

Instead, Martin pursued a career in the building industry by starting an apprenticeship with Askin Built.

Martin loves working as a team, and learns a lot from his brothers Sam & Tom.

“We work well as a team. Sam and Tom are not only super cool brothers, they are great teachers!”

When Martin isn’t working at Askin Built he is surfing at the beach or on his boat fishing down the coast.

Matthew Howland

TRADE ASSIST

Matt has had such varied experience, starting with a Civil Engineering degree, moving into the industry for quite a few years, before Matt needed a new landscape. After some travel he came back to Australia and worked in the arts, film, photography and graphic design.

He then ran and built a restaurant from the ground up, managing up to 20 staff. He learnt great customer service skills and also how to balance art and construction. This is what he has now found at Askin Built, he is able to use his hands to create and utilise all of his eclectic experience in the one place.

“We have great attention to detail and professionalism but we also enjoy ourselves. Because we know each other so well, we are like one big family.”

When Matt isn’t working at Askin Built he is Looking after his two children who are one and four. He enjoys his weekends, and anytime when he has a chance to chill out.
