Our Company was established in 1988 by our current Managing Director, Steve Smith and has grown from humble beginnings to a profitable and well regarded construction business.

Whilst we specialise in luxury homes on the Mornington Peninsula, we also undertake residential projects spanning all market sectors, from high-end homes and multi-stage developments to renovations, extensions and maintenance.

We’re also registered commercial builders. Past projects have included restaurant, hotel, shop and office renovations and additions, the construction of maintenance facilities for a golf club, jetty construction and a number of Civil works projects.

A testament to our high standards, quality of work and integrity is that the vast majority of our work is obtained by personal recommendations from clients, designers and architects practising in and around the Mornington Peninsula.

Our strong capital base allows us to expand all facets of our business. We look forward to continued growth and market penetration to further consolidate our position in the building community.

We have the confidence and expertise to deliver projects to exacting standards of quality and workmanship that meet or exceed our clients’ needs and expectations.
