About Us

Thorne Constructions is a well-renowned second-generation family building business founded by Archie Thorne with a strong legacy of hotel construction & renovation. After following their own paths in large construction project management, cabinet making & creative design, Nicholas and Neil Thorne have now taken the business to new heights with a focus on tailor-made creative building solutions.

Thorne Constructions began in 1983 as a two gang duo specialising in carpentry, and is growing into a civic-minded, personal building company that provides a holistic solution rather than a piecemeal approach. With a strong in-house team of project managers & carpenters specialising in custom cabinet making, demolition works, general builders and fantastic creative design, no job is too big or too small.

As a family focussed and community minded business we care about you and your vision. We are open and approachable and listen to your needs.  Our strength is in tailored design and execution along with honesty and excellent attention to detail within the timeframe you need.
