Residential Construction

Custom built homes

At Ray Laurence Constructions we turn your ideas into reality complete with practical living spaces. We specialise in building unique homes to showcase your individual taste.

Whether you have your own engineered plans, or no plans at all, we can help make your experience a hassle free process. We work with you from the drafting concepts, right through to completion to provide an individual design that complements the environment and is the only one of its kind in Darwin.

Renovations and extensions

If you are thinking home renovation, then get in touch with Ray Laurence Constructions in Darwin NT, whose specialities include home extension, home improvements, home addition and home renovations.

If renovating your residential or commercial building you can rely on Ray Laurence Constructions. As a high quality Darwin builder and local NT company, we have numerous repeat business clients who have requested further works shortly thereafter or sometimes years later

Whether your home needs a facelift, or your family is expanding, Ray Laurence Constructions can extend or alter your home so once it’s complete everything will fit together just like new.

We know how to make changes to complement existing structures which is one of the many reasons we won the 2005 and 2007 HIA Major Renovations Award for our homes in Darwin.

Whatever the project, whether a custom built home or major renovation contact Ray Laurence Constructions on 0407 035 868 or shoot an email to
