1966 Fairmont began at home.
It was the era of English migration. There was a real demand for affordable housing – families from the other side of the world were starting new lives, and providing a much needed skill base for a growing Adelaide. Gordon Pickard saw it as an opportunity – he would build homes that the average person could afford, homes that were designed for family life, and homes that would last. With the help of his wife, Christine, Gordon began Fairmont Homes from their home in Campbelltown.
