Overend Constructions was formed by Chris Overend in 1978. Based in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, it began as a team of two and has grown into a group of some 18 highly qualified people. Its roots were in environmental alternative construction and design. This has informed its development into a sophisticated and highly sought after company.

Always driven by an uncompromising quest for quality, Chris has steered the company down a strongly aesthetic path. He works for Melbourne’s leading architects to produce beautiful buildings – from restaurants and cellar doors to dwellings that nurture the soul.

Overend Constructions has an outstanding joinery component with skilled and experienced craftsmen.

Staff members are handpicked for their skill, dedication to the company’s vision and ability to be part of a team proud of its relationship with clients.

The simple philosophy of Overend Constructions is to respect the aesthetic, the environment and create works that honour individual expression.
