Who Is Lisney Construction

Lisney Construction builds some of the most creative and challenging homes in Sydney. We specialise in architecturally-designed homes and custom builds that inspire us.

Established in 2008 by brothers Ian and Michael Lisney, Lisney Construction has built a leading profile and reputation in residential construction. Bringing innovative and challenging projects from leading architects, and their clients, to reality. Lisney Construction has an uncompromising approach to quality.

Our dedicated team understands the project objectives and the need to meet milestones in relation to time and cost. We believe that passion for building is built on continued education of our staff, which enables us to offer our clients an industry leading experience.

‘What we love is leading this great team that we have assembled, and showcasing our abilities to architects and clients through our projects. The satisfaction that we gain from happy clients and proud staff is what motivates us.’

Meet the Team


Ian has followed his passion for building his entire life, winning multiple awards for his carpentry work. Now in a role of combining his project management acumen together with his role on site, provide the team with structure and leadership. His continued drive towards perfection is a key ingredient in Lisney Construction’s position as a market leader, contributing innovations that make the company more competitive and a better experience for the employees, the architects, and, most importantly, the clients.


Michael Lisney acts as the company’s Construction Manager. He runs all onsite operations and is the main point of contact for both the architect and the client during all phases of construction. Michael’s extensive skill set and experience in both carpentry and building means he can be hands-on and lead the construction team by example, which allows him to transfer his high standards for quality, leadership, and communication to each project he supervises, which has resulted in an impressive list of completed projects. Michael is the ideal manager: Always calm, always approachable, and incredibly organised.

We’re committed to the Sydney community we love and support. We’ve been running our business here for fifteen years and our family ties go back a long way. We choose to work here, to use our expertise and experience to construct incredible homes and other projects that raise the standard of living of our beloved community.


We also support our community directly. We’re currently members of the Curl Curl Youth Club and the Freshwater Surf Life Saving Club. We believe that you have to invest in the community that supports you – none of us are in this life alone.


Here at Lisney Construction we’re proud to work exclusively with skilled tradesmen, qualified local suppliers, and Australian products. We also provide strong support to the community and, work closely with local building regulations and practices to ensure every project is completed responsibly and professionally.
