Vale Syd Corser

April 28, 2019

HIA acknowledges the sad passing of Syd Corser.

Syd was a foundation member of HIA in Western Australia at its inception in 1968 and made an enormous contribution to the industry, acknowledged through his receipt of the Ron Seares Citation in 1999.

In 1951 Syd and his father Eric commenced a home building company ‘Corser and Son' which in 1993 became known as Pacesetter Homes Pty Ltd. Syd imported many new ideas into the WA industry, including being one of the first to introduce display centres and the use of concrete slab construction.

Syd was also involved in the evolution of urban Perth through development of the North Whitfords Estate.

Syd was widely acknowledged for his contribution in politics, sport, general business and community services, including being awarded the Order of Australia in the General Division (AM) in 1996.

HIA passes on our sincere condolences to Syd’s loved ones.
