Director, RYCON Constructions
The company Founder and Director, Gerard Ryan, has been in the building and construction industry since 1988. Starting out as an apprentice Carpenter and Joiner with Lendlease, Gerard has worked with some of Australia’s largest construction companies in the commercial and industrial sectors. After being involved in some of Brisbane’s landmark projects as well as overseas works, Gerard transitioned into the residential space where he quickly found a niche in building architecturally designed luxury homes. In 2003, Gerard obtained his Medium Rise Builder Licence and founded RYCON Constructions.
Gerard has established a highly reputable name in architectural home construction and, more recently, the commercial sector. He has an eye for detail, enjoys building dream homes for clients, and likes putting an architectural twist on industrial buildings. Gerard also appreciates the collaborative process between the owner, builder, and architect. This is where he can add most value and ensure the client build process is an enjoyable one. Gerard’s point of difference is his regular communication with his clients, architects, and designers.
Gerard has a keen interest in all things construction and is very proud of the buildings he has completed. Outside of construction, Gerard enjoys time with his wife and four children camping and water skiing or windsurfing.
