History

It all began back in 1954, when our founder Luigi Grollo put his mind to starting up a humble family business with big dreams.

Over three generations Grocon has evolved from the 1960’s company that specialised in small concrete works, pavements and pools in Victoria, to a structural sub-contractor in the 1970’s including the Darwin Homes project following the devastation of Cyclone Tracy.

In the 1980’s Grocon became a major player in the construction industry with the successful completion of the Grand Hyatt Hotel, 120 Collins Street, the World Congress Centre in Melbourne and our first integrated development and construction project the iconic Rialto Towers in Melbourne.

In the 1990’s we constructed the well-known Crown Casino complex in Melbourne and expanded into the Sydney market with Governor Phillip Tower, Governor Macquarie Tower, No 1 Martin Place and Cove Apartments.

Through the 2000s in Victoria we completed the QV Development, Eureka Tower, the MCG Northern Stand Redevelopment (for the 2006 Commonwealth Games), AAMI Park and Media House while in Sydney No.1 Martin Place and 1 Bligh Street were completed. In 2010 Grocon expanded into the Queensland market completing Brisbane Common Ground followed by 55 Elizabeth Street, Soul and Oracle on the Gold Coast.

Today Grocon is Australia’s best known privately owned development, construction and residential real estate company. We’re known for our complex and skyline defining projects in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, with a proven track record in development, construction and residential development projects. Some landmark projects we’ve created in recent times are the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Liberty Place / ANZ Tower and 5 Martin Place in Sydney and 55 Elizabeth Street and 480 Queen Street in Brisbane. The Ribbon in Sydney and the Parklands Project on the Gold Coast are currently under construction, the latter soon to be home to the 2018 Commonwealth Games Athletes Village.
