Our Company & Vision
THE BUILDING BLOCKS
At Greyburn we understand that construction is a people business. The successful delivery of projects is enhanced by a capable and cohesive team, who perform their roles whilst mutually respecting the contributions made by all involved. Greyburn values the relationships with our internal team, and with the people who represent our clients, consultants, subcontractors and suppliers.
Greyburn are focussed on delivering quality
craftsmanship on every project and are always willing to go the extra mile to deliver more than what we promise. This is facilitated by utilising an experienced design team, proven subcontractors and suppliers, and ensuring that the products and materials are tried and tested and in line with industry & government standards. The Greyburn delivery teams prioritise quality and longevity over price. We encourage our clients to do the same.
Greyburn are passionate about building and about the communities we operate in. Greyburn continually seeks to improve project efficiencies and delivery thereby allowing people involved more time to pursue their individual passions outside of building. Greyburn is focussed on continual improvement across the 4 pillars of construction – Time, Quality, Safety, and Cost.
Greyburn considers the long term future when making decisions and has done so since its establishment in 1987. At Greyburn we are very proud of our long history and the legacy created by the original founders, Michael Byrne and Graeme Ballinger, and we wish to continue that by establishing positive and long lasting relationships with our clients, suppliers, subcontractors, consultants and employees.

FROM THE BEGINNING
Greyburn Building Contractors is a company that came to fruition in 1987 in Melbourne through Michael Byrne and Graeme Ballinger refurbishing office buildings and expanded into general tendering, industrial, commercial, retail and residential projects. John Kearney started working with Greyburn in 2011 and became the sole director and shareholder in 2014 before welcoming Aaron Hook as a co-director in 2021.
Greyburn is and will continue to be a nimble and dynamic company that adapts to the ever-changing construction market whilst retaining a consistent team of highly skilled construction specialists.
COMBINED YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
IT TAKES A VILLAGE
Greyburn’s competitive edge is the fact that we have a relatively small team of highly skilled and experienced professionals that can quickly and efficiently adapt to the ever-changing construction market. All staff have worked in different facets of the construction industry and bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience. The Greyburn team is well assembled to take on the most complex constructions and to direct and manage the works from design to handover.
