Founded on our core values of accountability, service and transparency, Lahey Constructions is one of Australia’s most prominent, long standing, and successful construction firms, with a proven track record of delivering hundreds of quality projects.

Established in 1938 by Edward Lahey as a small joinery shop in Kempsey, the business quickly garnered a reputation for excellence and master craftsmanship. In 1946, with an expectation of strong future opportunities, Edward’s son Eric made the wise decision to expand the joinery manufacturing into traditional construction projects, resulting in the official launch of Lahey Constructions.

Since then, Lahey Constructions has attracted a wide and diverse portfolio of delighted clients across a range of sectors from community infrastructure,

hospitals, health and aged care, education, and correctional and justice facilities, through to residential and mixed-use developments.

Renowned for its flexible approach and unfailing commitment to excellence and integrity, Lahey Constructions is a Best Practice, federally accredited builder, with systems externally audited and accredited under ISO 14001:2015 Environment, ISO 9001:2015 Quality, ISO 45001:2018 Health and Safety, and the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner.

With offices strategically located in Sydney and the Mid North Coast town of Kempsey, our focus is firmly on the future. Today, Lahey Constructions remains as passionate and strong as ever with operational capacity to deliver projects across New South Wales.
