Drawing on Experience
Qanstruct was established in 1986 by Bob Neilson and Wally Percy, who intended simply to complete a couple of ‘pet projects’ before their planned retirement. As soon as word spread that the respected duo had gone into business together, the work started flowing in … and it hasn’t stopped since.
Wally and Bob’s expertise and experience ensured Qanstruct quickly became a leader in design excellence and quality construction, while their strong belief in treating everyone – staff, clients and contractors – the way they would want to be treated created the company’s ‘point of difference’: The openness, transparency and trust which have characterised every project since.
After working alongside Bob and Wally for ten years, Andrew Percy and Mark Ruff took over as Co-Directors in 1996 and Qanstruct continued to build on this strong foundation, working on everything from warehouses and offices, to specialised processing and manufacturing plants, general and refrigerated storage spaces, and even purpose designed facilities for detector dogs.
In late 2014, Andrew Percy retired from the business and Clem Perin, Charlie Rico, Damien Toppi and Josh Horan were appointed to join Mark Ruff as Directors.
Over the past 30 years, Qanstruct has designed, built and successfully delivered well over 100 projects covering more than 2,400,000 m2 , across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania, and has won over 30 Awards for Excellence.
We are proud of the excellent long-term relationships we enjoy with our valued clients, our loyal sub-contractors and reliable suppliers, and of the strength of our team of some 70 talented and dedicated professionals, many of whom have been with us for 10, 20 and even 30 years.
Most importantly, Qanstruct is still guided by our founding principles: Quality, innovation, integrity and service. It is that legacy, more than anything, which makes Qanstruct the company it is today.
