2019 Deakin University Geelong Business Excellence Awards Launched

By | Awards, Community

On Wednesday 27 February, the 2019 Deakin University Geelong Business Excellence Awards (GBEA) were launched. Established in 1986 and managed by The Geelong Chamber of Commerce, the Geelong Business Excellence Awards recognises organisations that have achieved business excellence in the Geelong region.

As a previous winner of the GBEA Overall Award, Lyons Construction knows first hand the value of gaining recognition and celebrating your businesses’ achievements and performance. In 2019, Lyons Construction continues its long association with the GBEA by sponsoring the Medium to Large Organisation Award.

The theme for the 2019 awards is “Celebrating the Journey.” Lyons Construction’s journey commenced in 1929. Growing from humble beginnings, when Eric J Lyons alongside his brother Allan started the business, Lyons Construction is now Geelong’s largest and oldest commercial construction company.

Specialising in medium to large commercial construction and with a wealth of experience in education, health, community, aged care, retail, hospitality and industrial, Lyons Construction is proud of the reputation it has achieved. We also recognise that it is the team behind Lyons Construction that is responsible for our success.

This year, Lyons Construction celebrates its 90th Anniversary and reflects on its journey since 1929 and the positive impact the company has had to date in Geelong and regions. We also look to the future so that the company may continue to thrive. Later in the year we will celebrate our journey.

Lyons Construction encourages all businesses whether large of small to enter the Geelong Business Excellence Awards and looks forward to celebrating the journey with all entrants at the award ceremony later in the year.

Ethan…a champion in the making!

By | LC Team, News

The annual Lyons Construction Staff Social Bowls Competition was held on Wednesday 20 February 2019 at the Geelong Lawn Bowls Club (GBC). The night,  which is a great chance to get together and have some fun,  is also a nod to Eric J Lyons, who was a founding member of the GBC and a past president and champion. Eric would have been pleased as punch to see young, and not so young, enjoying a game of bowls on what turned out to be a beautiful evening; just perfect bowling weather.

Retired Director, Kevin Lyons, who enjoys a game or two of bowls, declared the winner of the evening, Ethan Bauzon, a natural and possible future champion of the game. With most recreational bowlers having reached retirement age, and with Ethan only being 13, it could be a long wait to see if Kevin’s predication comes true!. But if Ethan does want to take up the sport he could have a chat to Chairman of the Board, Norm Lyons, about Lyons Construction sponsorship.

Staff wishing to hone their skills prior to the 2020 competition can head down to the GBC’s Learn to Bowl session on a Saturday morning. For more information about what time the session will be held and to book a spot go to www.geelongbowlsclub.com.au

Congratulations again to Ethan, runner up Pat Barber, and to all who took part in the evening …well bowled!
