At Evolution, we understand that escaping ordinary takes courage – something we’d love to pass on to you.

For us, our origins have played a defining roll in shaping who we are today. Descending from the same gene pool as Daly & Shaw Builders, we draw on over three decades of inherited knowledge in our pursuit of perfection

Established in 1984, Daly & Shaw have stood the test of time in the ever-changing property development landscape. During this time, owners Mick Daly and Robert Shaw gained an understanding of what it takes to deliver success - service and customer satisfaction. As such, Daly & Shaw has built the business around providing direct communication. Customers know they can access Mick & Rob’s knowledge and advice at any time, continuously leading to better outcomes for all (rather than fruitless emails that never see the light of day).

Today, Evolution shares these same traits as Daly & Shaw to ensure a tradition of inspiring confidence leaves a lasting legacy for many more years to come.

Director of Daly & Shaw Building Pty Ltd & Director of Evolution Custom Builds + Extensions + Renovations

“I’ve worked in the building and construction industry for over 40 years. In this time I’ve developed exceptional building and site management skills. I’m a ‘people person’ at heart, be that clients, work colleagues or contractors. Those who know me will not be surprised to learn that I’m in my element helping people build their investment property or dream home. That takes a range of traits, from compassion to selflessness, honesty, modesty, intelligence and of course, a healthy sense of humour. My goal on every project is to run a tight ship, with the aim of passing cost savings, product quality and timely delivery onto the client. Outside of work, I enjoy the footy, travelling and spending time with my family. Although, some would say I enjoy work more than relaxing - it's not a job for me, it's a way of life.”

“I’ve built five extremely successful businesses since finishing a carpentry trade certificate when I was 21 years of age. My entrepreneurial streak is something I’ve always been proud of, continually pushing the limits of what’s possible both at work and in my leisure time. Over the years, I’ve never shied away from a challenge, with much of my spare energy directed towards adding value to not-for-profit organisations, like the MBA and Netball Australia (the sport my daughters play). For me, it’s not a chore - I enjoy the challenge of managing my time. Before I take on any new challenge, I need to be sure that I have the passion and drive, that I can actually make a difference, and most importantly, that I’ll have fun along the way.”

Director Evolution Custom Builds+Extensions+Renovations

“I manage all aspects of Daly & Shaw and Evolution, acting as the go-to man for all staff. A mature, ambitious forward thinker with exceptional organisation skills (some say I have OCD!), I have designed and implemented a range of strategies at Daly & Shaw that have led to in-house efficiencies, less room for error and consistent project lead times. My mantra is to ‘never settle for ordinary’. For me, my job is my hobby. I treat every day as a chance to drive improvement and move forward. This is best demonstrated in my relentless desire to change the future direction of Daly & Shaw. I put my career on the line to focus all my energy on driving the company to become leaders in the construction of multi-apartment complexes and grouped dwellings. Today Daly & Shaw is geared specifically for this area, opening up space for Evolution to take shape in its own right.”
