MEET THE TEAM
Keegan – Managing Director and Principal Builder
Keegan commenced his apprenticeship in 2002 with a well-known and respected Northern Beaches builder after completing his Cert II in Construction Pathways as part of his HSC. After completing his apprenticeship in Certificate III in Carpentry & Joinery in 2004, he completed his Certificate IV in Building & Construction as an additional 2 year course in 2006. He went on to become his leading hand foreman, working on high end projects ranging from prestigious waterfront homes on the Northern Beaches to federation homes in Mosman.
After 10 years working on high end residential builds as a qualified carpenter and foreman, Keegan felt it was time to challenge himself and Blucore Construction was born in 2015. Commencing as a sole trader, we have recently undergone a change of trading structure in mid-2018, now operating as a Proprietary Limited (Pty Ltd) Company. We have recently relocated to Narrawallee on the beautiful South Coast of NSW where we are now servicing the Shoalhaven.
In his spare time, Keegan enjoys spending time at the beach with his wife, Kristy and three young children, Arlo, Wren and Sylvie. You might also find him trying to catch dinner in his tinny up Narrawallee inlet or attempting to catch a wave at one of our many beautiful local beaches.
Maurie – Leading Hand Carpenter
Maurie brings with him over 30 years of practical experience on architectural builds in the residential construction industry. He has worked with Keegan since 2002, following him when he started Blucore Construction in 2015. This 18-year working relationship has been refined and developed over dozens of architectural builds working side by side, resulting in seamless, precise construction and effortless communication.
Maurie boasts a diverse skill set, developed over years in the industry. He is an excellent carpenter and joiner and like Keegan, has demonstrated experience working on a range of site conditions and technically difficult builds. He is dedicated, hard-working and an all-round nice bloke.
In his spare time, Maurie enjoys wetting a line and hanging out with his two children, Jack and Emma.
Riley Winnell – Apprentice
Riley started with Blucore in October 2020 as a 1st year apprentice. Having just completed the Construction Pathways program as part of his HSC, Riley was selected out of a number of quality applicants for our apprentice carpenter position. He displays all the qualities of an excellent carpenter in the making – he listens carefully to instructions and follows them diligently, pays close attention to detail and is a fast learner.
He is polite, punctual and reliable and is fast becoming a highly valued member of the growing Blucore team.
Riley is currently completing his Certificate III in Carpentry at Nowra TAFE.
In his spare time he can be found carving up the snowy mountains on his mountain bike.
Kristy Mitchell – Office Manager
Keegan’s wife, Kristy, is a primary school teacher and busy mum to three young kids. As well as bringing up a young family, Kristy looks after the office administration, marketing and bookkeeping of the company.
Originally from Narrawallee, Kristy was the driving force behind the family’s recent move to the area. After spending almost 18 years in Wollongong and Sydney after completing her Teaching degree at UOW, she felt the beautiful South Coast was a better place to raise the children than in the hustle bustle of Sydney, and she wanted them to have the same amazing quality of life on the coast that she had growing up.
Kristy enjoys spending time at Narrawallee beach with her young family, catching up with friends for a coffee, pilates, walking and fishing.
