Meat the TeamSimon Griggs, a residential home builder and founder of Tribute Homes located in Townsville, North Queensland. Simon started Tribute Homes as a local family business, and for more than 35 years he has taken pride in delivering quality work while making sure the "customer comes first." In that time, Tribute Homes has grown from a young father with a dream to now, one of the premier building companies in the region.

Over the course of our long history, Tribute Homes has become an expert at timber frame home construction. This specialty allows us to provide a fast, eco-friendly, highly-insulated new home building solution, which offers customers huge savings and healthier standards of living. Today, the consistent overarching goal is to constantly monitor and improve energy efficiency and sustainable living through innovative ideas.

This has contributed to the success of Tribute Homes as a family business, dedicated to building homes for the families of North Queensland.


Thinking of Building? "We always Build on time, to Budget, Defect Free"

Proud to be different

Rather than showing you dozens of floor plans and designer illustrations, we put you, the future home owner, at the centre of our enterprise. That’s in a nutshell our philosophy, and in doing so we were able to redefine the way we do business. It’s simple: you come first. Seeing it this way, we shaped all our interactions to ease and improve both purchasing and the building process.

Company's DNA

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle


We believe in family-friendly and energy-friendly homes that will save home owners hundreds of dollars every year. We believe that our success is not determined by our decisions of the past, but by the way we take care of our environment and our customers – now, and in the future. We believe this can only be accomplished by listening, caring and enabling free decision making for our customers.

Mission Statement

We build environmentally and family-friendly homes of exceptional quality and flexible design for families of any budget, using a customer-focused, efficient and stress-free process that allows the customer to have the freedom of choice.

Tribute Homes - Our Vision

We do not believe in the ‘Supermarket Builder’, because there is no way they could focus on the customer and the customer’s best interest. With increased quantities, the quality drops dramatically and there is no control. We love the satisfaction of seeing a family take ownership of their new home, made even more satisfying when we catch up with the family a couple of years down the track to see they have made the house their castle. Therefore, we will not build any more than 30 homes in one calendar year, to ensure we maintain control and customer focus.
