 About Us

More than fifty-five years of construction experience

As a proudly Australian privately owned family business, Lipman is an experienced, commercial builder that has constructed some of Sydney and NSW’s most outstanding commercial, educational and industrial buildings for more than 55 years.

Our success is due to the expertise of a loyal team of multi-disciplined, high-performing professionals that have embraced our long-standing culture of collaborative contracting, customer focus, and commitment to success.

Some of our most significant projects over our history include: Northpoint, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Macquarie University Arts Precinct, Elements Of Byron, Lober Square for Anglicare and the recent Luna Park refurbishment. We are currently constructing Parramatta Aquatic Centre.

Our sites feel different, and our Clients see the results.

Our History

Same Values Today Over 55 Years Later

When Phillip Lipman started the business in 1966, he set out to do things differently. His vision of treating trade partners and clients with respect gave rise to the notion of collaborative contracting which is a philosophy that forms the backbone of the company today. Our values of honesty, integrity, innovation and collaboration have attracted a team of bright, talented young people that embody these values and cemented a company culture like no other.

Current Ownership
