Our Story

Leaving a legacy

Where it all started

1976 - 1983

Lou started his own building business after completing his apprenticeship and doing a few years national service. Andrew joined him as an apprentice in 1983. Once Andrew finished his apprenticeship they formed a new building company together.

Apprenticeship

1983 - 1994

When Rod finished high school he did his apprenticeship in the business that Lou (his father) and Andrew owned. Once Rod had completed his apprenticeship he then went into business for himself and sub contracted to Lou & Andrew.

The Merge

2004

Rod, Andrew & Lou consolidated their businesses to create RAL Constructions. As Rod & Andrew both have young families it was theirs & Lou’s hope that the business would eventually give their children jobs & a future in this area.

Expansion

2012

RAL Constructions expanded both their commercial & residential sectors and launched a custom built swimming pool company.

Paving the path

2020

RAL Constructions becomes RALCON Homes & RALCON Commercial specialising in custom built homes, commercial developments & renovations.

One of Andrew’s sons is now studying engineering and it is the belief of all Directors that several of their children will join the business and follow in their fathers & grandfather’s footsteps.

Testimonials

Kind words from our clients

We are very happy with our extension and personally would like to thank all the tradesmen for the great work they have achieved for us they were all great to get along with and nothing was too much trouble.

 

We had a clear vision for our extension. The RALCON Homes team took the time to make sure that our vision became a reality….. awesome finish. Quality job. On time and on budget….we couldn’t be happier.

 

Our family is going to enjoy some great times and fond memories thanks to RALCON a big thanks to Lisa and Lou.

From the moment I walked into the office of RALCON Homes, with a house plan literally drawn on the back of a serviette, Rod and Lisa told me they could build whatever I wanted…and they did!

 

The team at RALCON Homes was always professional and courteous, and more than anything, made a seemingly overwhelming task almost effortless. Rod and Lisa always made themselves available resulting in any issues being resolved immediately and ensured that my concerns, however minor, were elevated quickly with patient and thorough explanation.


The thoughtful advice provided by Lisa along the journey was second to none.  The time and consideration she took to work through my plans and the look and feel of my home to ensure it was perfect for me, is something for which I will be forever grateful.

 

The trades people engaged by RALCON Homes all conducted themselves professionally and with consideration when dealing with us and were beyond tolerant when I added windows and skylights at the last minute.  The support they showed to myself and my children during the build was incredible; from encouraging my son to ‘help’ lay the slab, lay bricks and position tiles, to listening with intent as my daughter explained how she would like her walk in wardrobe set out. As the build neared completion, everyone showed respect to what would soon be my home, keeping the site tidy and removing their shoes when working inside; conduct that I was extremely grateful for.

 

My decision to engage locally is one that was reinforced time and again throughout the build and without doubt, allowed me to achieve the level of uniqueness I desired.  I haven’t just built a house…together with RALCON Homes we have created a home my family can grow in and enjoy for many years to come and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
