— Our Story —



Alternative Construction Group (ACG) is the result of over 35 years of knowledge and experience in Melbourne’s Construction industry. We specialize in high-end residential, retail and commercial construction in Melbourne and surrounding areas. Quality, Service, Workmanship and attention to detail is the forefront of everything we do.

Richard has been working in the construction industry for 37 years. Starting as an apprentice Carpenter at the age of 15, Richard's continuous hard work eventually led to becoming a partner in a high-end construction company, building homes in and around Ivanhoe, Eaglemont, Balwyn, Kew, Camberwell, Toorak, Brighton & Elwood. Fast forward to today, Richard is now the Director of Alternative Construction Group, Alternative Surfaces & Alternative Surfaces Imports.

After forming ACG, Rob was Richards first point of call. Back in 1986 Rob started his carpentry apprenticeship working for Richard and worked his way up to be a Site Manager for a Tier 3 Construction company. 30 years later Rob and Richard are now partners in ACG.

Robs right hand man, Chris, graduated in Building and Construction and brings to the team knowledge in residential and commercial construction sites around Melbourne after working for a tier 2 Melbourne company. Chris now manages ACG's Estimates, Contracts and Projects with the help of Marcus, ACG’s newset Project Administrator.

Joseph, Chris, Garth, Elijah & Adrian are the faces you’ll see on site day-to-day as they work hands-on to bring your vision to life.


“ I am the director of interior design practice The Stylesmiths and I couldn't recommend ACG Builders more highly. They are honest, pragmatic and supportive of our clients and design team. They are detailed oriented and never cut corners. They are our go to builders in Melbourne. “
