NXT Building Group History.

The NXT Building Group was developed to support numerous brands. Grown from early beginnings in 1987 as a family owned, new home building business based in the Hunter region of NSW, today we support many of Australia’s most well-known and respected new project home, multi-residential and investment property building companies. Originally founded under McDonald Jones Homes, today NXT Building Group does not build homes, we focus on supporting brands through a range of professional services and strategic guidance, so that they can set the benchmark in residential construction. The NXT Building Group is resourced by a team of dedicated employees.
