Ambrose Building Flood Response.

As locals, with an office on Ingham Road and fulltime Supervisors in Townsville, we have experienced one of Queensland’s worst flood disasters on record with you.

Ambrose Building is a Queensland family owned company that specialises in insurance repairs across Queensland and we have been completing insurance repairs in Townsville since 2011.

As locals, we understand the local conditions, use local trades and local suppliers.  Having responded to every major natural disaster since the Mackay floods in 2008, we have a large support network and proven infrastructure.  Our response model to events is we fully engage all of our local trades and only look to bring in our event trades once our local teams are at capacity.  Our “First-in / Last-Out” policy means we use local trades first, support them with event trades so repairs to homes don’t stall, and as the event comes to a close all event trades are transitioned out leaving the local trades to work with us long into the future.  At all times, all vetted, licenced and qualified local trades are utilised to their full capacity ensuring locals are 100% involved in fixing Townsville.

Event Supervisors

The size of this event means Ash, Phil and Ben can’t do it all on their own.  Therefore, you may meet one of our Supervisors from Cairns, Mackay, Rockhampton, the Sunshine Coast and even Brisbane who we have called on to assist.

Head Office Support

During your repair you will get a call from our head office staff based at Kunda Park on the Sunshine Coast.  So if you see a number from down south, this is our Administration Team who are supporting our local Supervisors in Townsville.  Our office number is 07-53733500

Customer Service is very important to us and we know that the number one cause of problems on a repair is the breakdown of clear and effective communication. Therefore on each and every repair we allocate a QBCC Building Supervisor to manage and coordinate the repair on the ground and a Claims Administrator who is as a second point of contact to help answer questions or pass messages on if the Supervisor is unavailable.

If at any time you have questions about your repair don’t hesitate to ask or track your repair via our Ambrose Building Customer Portal – Repair Hub.
