Charles Arnott & Steve Brescacin

Mulberry Homes:

Mulberry Homes is a small, boutique building business. We provide a complete design, engineering and building management service specialising in new homes, additions, renovation and restoration work.   Our early years in business also involved many commercial projects including acting as consultant engineers on the WACA redevelopment Stage 1 and many large factory/warehouse structures.

We work closely with our clients to provide a service that encourages them to be involved in all aspects of design and construction to achieve a quality, sympathetic and functional design.

In order to maintain client satisfaction and quality of service, we run only 4-6 projects at any given time.

We strive to maintain a friendly working relationship with our clients and by far the majority of our work comes from referrals from satisfied clients – “word of mouth”.


Charles and Steve have worked together for more than 30 years and established Mulberry Homes 20 years ago. The pair worked together for a large structural engineering consultant whose main area of expertise was multi-storey design in the Perth CBD.

Projects Steve has worked on include:

Merlin Hotel (now Hyatt) – Site Engineer

R&I Tower – Site Engineer

Education Department Building East Perth – Site Engineer

190 St. George’s Terrace – Site Engineer

Trinity Arcade – Site Engineer


Ran the Design office for Arup Consulting Engineers for 16 years working in Perth, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Auckland and London on large multi-storey structural projects.

In 1988, after working with Charles for 8 years, Steve started his own structural consulting engineering practice. In 1995 Charles and Steve started Mulberry Homes and have built it into a thriving and successful business.
