Sassall Group – licenced builders and renovations experts
With a career spanning almost thirty years, Director Mick Sassall has experience in almost all facets of the construction industry. From the family roots (domestic and commercial window manufacturing and installation) to now, as a licensed carpenter / builder in his own right.
For over 80 years the Sassall family name has been respected within the building industry, Australia wide. The window and glass business at its peak employed over 500 fulltime staff. After beginning his career within that family business Mick moved away to follow his passion for the profession of Carpentry. In the following years he worked on multimillion dollar residential homes from Sydney Harbour to Palm Beach. Here he progressed from Carpenter to Leading Hand, then to a supervisory role.
It was during time working on these projects that his enthusiasm for quality Carpentry, superior finishes and getting things done 'the right way' was ignited. Learning from industry experts such as Tim Rooney (Construction Connection), Architect Alex Popov and many other quality tradesmen has afforded him skills that have proven to be invaluable in all that he does.
In 2002 Mick moved back to Wollongong to start a family and his own business now named Sassall Group Pty Ltd.
Our Leading Hand-Karl Opperman has been with us since December 2015. Karl brings to Sassall Group & to the Illawarra, experience gained whilst working and travelling. His 7 years in the industry have seen him working on projects from tourist accommodation in remote communities such as Mitchell Plateau, Dampier Peninsula, Fitzroy Crossing and the Bungle Bungles to Multi Million dollar homes in Perth. Karl has amassed an impressive set of skills, most importantly attention to detail and a desire to create high end finishes that have been a perfect fit for our team.
