Our History

Established in 1929 by founder Eric Lyons, Lyons Construction has worked determinedly and competently to become the renowned and respected business it is today. Maintaining our core values of excellence, integrity, quality, and trust instilled into the company by Eric, Lyons Construction has flourished to become the oldest and largest commercial builder in Geelong.

Like any business, in the beginning, Lyons Construction started with a dream, by its founder Eric Lyons, to build even the most humble of buildings, to the best standard he could muster.

The lasting heritage that Lyons Construction represents is aptly illustrated throughout the visual landscape of Geelong and the regions. For decades Lyons Construction has delivered robust and enduring buildings for the community to enjoy.

  • Third Generation
