RYCON Constructions - Luxury Home Builders Brisbane - Gerard

Gerard Ryan

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 bespoke luxury homes. In 2003, Gerard obtained  his Medium Rise Builder Licence and founded RYCON Constructions.

Gerard has established a highly reputable name in custom-designed home construction and, more recently, the commercial sector. He has an eye for detail, enjoys building dream homes for clients, and likes putting an innovative design 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.

“We are a very established landscape design, build and maintenance company and pride ourselves on the quality of our workmanship. When it comes to aligning ourselves with a construction company, sharing the same values is something really important to us. Gerard and his team are in the top echelon of contractors in Australia. Their workmanship and customer service is not only of the highest quality, they are also wonderful people to work with. Nothing is too hard and they are always there to guide you through every step of the building process. That's why I chose them to build our new headquarters in Brisbane and I could not speak more highly of the whole team at RYCON Constructions.”


"This is actually our 4th project with Rycon Constructions, and we couldn’t be happier with the end result!

We of course continue to choose Rycon as we have developed a great working relationship with Gerard who understands exactly what we are after."


"The RYCON team, along with Sue Innes, were amazing to work with. Sue's depth of knowledge made us feel confident in the decisions we made.

Gerard and his team were great at maintaining a clear line of communication through the entire project."


"Gerard is very measured and meticulous. He spent considerable time with us in pre-planning to ensure that the design and build were cohesive with our vision - this assisted in not only the build quality but minimised delays and almost eliminated re-designs. I would not hesitate to work with RYCON again."
