Our team

Lyons Construction is proud of the fact that over the years hundreds of local people from Geelong and the surrounding regions have been part of our team. Many staff stay with the company all of their working lives; they become part of the Lyons Construction family. Others leave only to return having gained new knowledge and skills which further enhance our team. The one constant is a culture of excellence and a drive to work together with all involved in the project to construct quality buildings that, just like our business, stand the test of time.

Eric and his wife, Isie, had four children, Doreen, Kevin, Norman and Heather. Eric was very proud that his two sons, Kevin and Norm, worked with him in the business. The values Eric espoused continue to influence the business to this day.
