Director, RYCON Constructions
The Company founder and Director, Gerard Ryan has been in the building Industry since 1998 , starting out as an apprentice Carpenter and Joiner. After 14 years working for one of Australia largest Builders, Lend Lease in the Commercial Construction sector, he then moved into the residential space where he quickly found a niche market in building Architectural Designer luxury homes. After obtaining his building Licence in 2003, RYCON Constructions was formed, and Gerard has gone onto establishing a highly reputable name in this sector. Over the last 30 years, Gerard has worked in South East Queensland, focusing on both the Commercial and Architectural home build sectors.
Gerard enjoys and has a keen interest in all things construction, and is very proud of the buildings he has completed in and around Brisbane. Outside of construction, Gerard enjoys time with his wife and four children camping and water skiing or windsurfing.

Founder and director, Gerard Ryan commenced RYCON Constructions in 1984 after learning and honing his trade as a carpenter and builder for many years. Gerard’s father was a builder and while some may say it was in his blood, he also enjoyed architecture and design so was conflicted as to which way to educate himself. With this strong interest in design building bespoke residential homes became a focal area over time as this brought the two passions together. We think it has made him pretty great at it too.
Gerard also has extensive experience in large commercial works both here in Queensland and overseas. It is through Gerard’s experience and leadership, along with highly competent staff members and tradespeople, that RYCON Constructions is able to produce consistently high standards of work, no matter what site conditions or building design it encounters.
