What sets Piruse Constructions apart from other builders is our ability to complete complex projects within allotted time frames without compromising on quality and with minimal disruption to owners and tenants.

Piruse Constructions has been in operation for over 30 years working from our Wollongong Head Office. We deliver commercial and residential building works in Sydney, Wollongong, the South Coast and regional areas. With over 400 construction projects of all scope and size under our belt, we have successfully grown to be a recognised builder and developer with a lot of repeat business from our clients.


Our flexible, easy-to-work with style makes even the most complex building project a stress-free and satisfying experience for our clients. We take time to understand specific needs of each construction project. We offer help and insight to make the process run smoothly and seamlessly. In the end, we want to go above and beyond any client’s expectations for a job well done.

Ask around. Piruse Constructions has a great reputation for high quality work with friendly, professional service. We’re happy to share references and referrals from satisfied clients and contractors. (We don’t have anything but satisfied clients!) What’s more, we follow all industry benchmarks and protocols for governance, sustainability and workplace safety. Our memberships and accreditations meet all industry requirements.
