About the project

The Give Where You Live Foundation is a place-based philanthropic community foundation. As a proud Geelong, family-owned business, Lyons Construction is thrilled to give back to this inspiring organisation.

We have been a supporter of the foundation for over 25 years, taking part in the loaned executive program and Norm Lyons also became Campaign Chairperson in 2003.

So when the opportunity arose to provide our services to the Give Where You Live Foundation to assist refurbishing their office in Geelong CBD, we jumped at the chance. Together with Select Architects, who cleverly designed a ‘community lab’ co-working space, we were able to refurbish a tired, out-dated building into a modern headquarters. We were also able to secure a local procurement result of 98% of locally sourced subcontractors for the project.

A big thank you to The Give Where You Live Foundation for entrusting us with your new office space and to our project team and local subcontractors who delivered an excellent, quality, on-time result.

Here are some kind words from the team at Give Where You Live:

“We were thrilled with the work Lyons Construction undertook to create the office building of our dreams! Our new space is a testament to the quality and excellence the Lyons Construction team are known for. We are proud to partner with such a community-focused organisation (they achieved over 95% local procurement for this project!). Thanks Lyons Construction team!”
