The Early Years
With the support of wife Sophie, Mick founded his first construction company, quickly growing in reputation and winning the Master Builders Excellence award in 2005.
First World Record
Mick Fabar broke The Guinness World Record for Speed Boxing for the first time and raised over 100,000 for Ronald McDonald House in the process.
Green Homes Australia was founded as a regional NSW company and gained national recognition, winning HIA’s award for most sustainable home in 2007.
Guinness Record Reclaimed
In an event held at Sydney Football Stadium, Mick wins back his title for the most punches delivered in one minute (a total of 548 punches in 60 seconds).
Green Homes Australia wins additional awards from the HIA (Housing Industry Association) including best project home in Australia.
Mick becomes a bestselling author by writing a comprehensive guide to building an energy efficient home. After being published on Amazon as an e-Book, it is purchased globally by people in over 30 countries.
Fordging New Roads
Mick’s show car the ZERO’D, becomes the world’s only carbon–neutral hot rod. It is assembled using environmentally friendly methods. Mick and his teammates work closely with members of the local community to offer education to participants, while Queensland’s Bond University ensures it’s compliant with ideal zero-emissions standards.
Smashed It Again
Mick comes back to smash another Guinness World Record, this time it’s for the most left jabs thrown in one minute. He knocks out 302 jabs and still holds the record today.
Green Homes Australia begins franchising within its first few years of growth, something rarely heard of in most small business models.
ZERO’D Wins Awards
Over the 2012 – 2013 show season, the ZERO’D claims multiple prestigious awards
including Summernaut’s Top Judged Elite Car, The People’s Choice Award and Grand Champion overall. As the only zero-emissions certified hot rod in the world, the ZERO’D also takes home the title of 2013 Street Machine of Year.
GHA achieves ISO (International Standard Organisation) Accreditation for their building process, becoming the first Australian construction company to receive this designation.
Into the Future
In 2016, Green Homes Australia launched their first New Zealand office. Another 25 offices are expected to follow within the next 5 years.
