Locky eyes next 'series' win

FROM one series to another. Fresh from commentating on the NRL's State of Origin series rugby league great Darren Lockyer is introducing a series of house designs.

Sunshine Coast-based building company Ausmar Group has announced they have officially signed Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Maroons and Australian Kangaroos great Lockyer as their partner and brand ambassador.

To celebrate this partnership, Ausmar and Darren Lockyer are launching a range of six bespoke Lockyer Collection homes.

Ausmar director Tim Hendy said the new partnership had been six months in the making to ensure the fit for both Darren and Ausmar was just right.

"Darren Lockyer embodies professionalism, trustworthiness and the true Queenslander spirit, and this will resonate well with our clients," Mr Hendy said.

"We wanted to ensure our brands and long term goals fit well with each other, and through several meetings with Darren and his team we really feel we've made the right choice and one we can be proud of in years to come.''

Architecture and real estate have always interested me, the former Brisbane, Queensland and Australian rugby league captain said.

"I appreciate well designed buildings and homes. I am delighted to have partnered with Ausmar Homes.

"In collaborating with their team, my designs will reflect the beautiful landscapes that Queensland offers.

"This will be complemented by a mix of contemporary design features, while capturing the essence of Queensland's natural environment."

Mr Hendy said he was delighted Darren Lockyer made the decision to partner with Ausmar Group.

"Darren is one of Australia's best-known and most respected athletes and his support and passion for our business and the building industry is phenomenal."

Darren Lockyer captained Queensland in 22 State of Origin games and six series victories. He captained Australia in 38 test matches from 2003-2011.

In the Ausmar series of houses, designs will incorporate light open spaces, with seamless living from inside to outside and also, create a sense of warmth for the whole family.

Tim Hendy said the Lockyer Collection would be a home where great memories were made.

Darren Lockyer will be attending Ausmar Homes display home opening on Saturday, July 22, from 5pm until 7pm, located at Stockland, Aura City of Colour.
