With over 30 years’ experience in commercial and residential construction, Joe’s expertise and passion in the building industry has been instrumental in the growth of Blue Eco Homes. Joe initially established Joe Mercieca Constructions in 2003 following his success working for a large commercial construction company, prior to rebranding to Blue Eco Homes in 2010.
His leadership skills have seen the business grow, while his considered approach to the needs and motivation of his clients and his genuine desire for quality and sustainable construction has resulted in many successful and award-winning projects. Joe is a Certified Passive House Tradesperson as well as a HIA GreenSmart Professional and Master Builders Green Living builder.
Armed with a strong belief that ‘no challenge is too big’, Joe is leading the way in sustainable construction, which has naturally led to his interest in Passive House. This extends to the launch this year of a Certified Passive Display home built to bushfire BAL-FZ (Flame Zone) standard in the Blue Mountains NSW in order to promote the benefits of Passive House to the industry and wider community. Joe is involved in various influential construction groups to encourage the education and development of current industry bodies, staff and regulations, including his current role as vice chair of the Housing Industry Association (NSW) Training and Membership Committee and newly appointed role as a member of the APHA Board of Directors.
