Welcome to George Rydell Constructions

Our company was established by Ian George in 1988,  and now employs more than 40 people. Building a lasting family business means we’ve put in the extra hours and effort needed to make it a success.

Everything we do is guided by our values:

  Working hand-in-hand with our clients 

 Being visible and accountable at all times

 Remaining flexible in our decision-making

 Being supportive of each other  

  Building long-term relationships based on trust.

When we gained responsibility for the management and direction of GRC in September 2019, Ian George remained involved as our mentor, supporting the continuation of our company’s heritage and longevity as a local business.

We believe totally in the principle of people do business with people.

We look forward to working with you.
