Builder Profile: Hickinbotham

Hickinbotham is South Australia’s largest and longest established building and development company. Building one in every four new homes in Adelaide, Hickinbotham has since housed over 65,000 South Australians and created more than 50 masterplanned communities. Hickinbotham's homes also feature heavily in the recent St. Clair residential development, including the 2-storey Barcelona design (pictured).

Hickinbotham was founded by Alan Hickinbotham with his father Alan R. Hickinbotham, in 1954. The company's current Managing Director is also Alan's son, Michael Hickinbotham, who is a member of the Economic Development Board and an executive member of the Urban Development Institute of Australia (SA). As an environmentally conscious building company, Hickinbotham believes in environmentally sustainable designs, pioneering many of these innovations in the building and development industry.

In the 1960s, Hickinbotham was the first private developer in South Australia to implement underground power lines. Alongside their large range of environmentally friendly products, known as Greenchoice, Hickinbotham established aquifer storage and recovery together with the CSIRO at Andrews Farm. The project received worldwide interest and set standards across the building and development industry in Australia.

As a South Australian-owned company, Hickinbotham has an esteemed knowledge of local building conditions, as well as finance, design, land and soil types. Committed to offering the best value homes in South Australia, Hickinbotham has the state’s best range of villa, courtyard, traditional and two storey designs, with over 230 plans to choose from.

Hickinbotham defines value as a beautifully designed and well-built home, teamed with professional service at a highly competitive price. Partnering with award-winning architect Max Pritchard, the Affordable Architect series of homes incorporates environmentally sustainable features and innovative designs as an affordable yet high quality alternative to the regular housing market.

And unlike some building and development companies who invest locally-earned profits in other states, Hickinbotham reinvests all of its capital in South Australia, strengthening our local economy.

Whether you’re a first home buyer, needing to house a growing family or even looking to downsize, Hickinbotham has a design to accommodate any taste, style or budget. Hickinbotham continues to build on its position as an industry innovator and leader, and strives to provide quality housing options which offer real value for Australian families. Hickinbotham is, and will continue to be committed to offering “South Australia’s Best Value Homes”
