About Us

Vision, Culture & the Team
RJM Builders was founded in 2011 by Managing Director Ryan McMahon, who set out to create a building company that would forever change and set the new standard for builders to come.
All too often Ryan had heard of clients and builders leaving on bad terms, or heard that the client was unhappy with the experience and never wanted to build again. Ryan knew something had to change and so he created RJM builders to be at the forefront of that change, with a company that provides clients with an immersive building experience tailored to their individuality, goals, needs, and building expectations, whilst always being accompanied by a dedicated builder to guide them along their journey.
Ryan has over 25 years’ experience in the building and construction industry. He started his career as an apprentice carpenter renovating and building homes, and then moved to Site Foreman roles and Site Management positions in the realms of commercial retail, hospitality, office and medical projects for top-tier construction companies.
Collectively RJM Builder’s on-site and office team have over 100 years of construction experience from renovations, high-end new builds, Insurance works, commercial builds and fit-outs. We believe strongly in sharing this knowledge with all RJM team members, new and current, as well as subsidising their training in construction certificates to continually improve their skills and understanding of construction processes. This ensures the team of people at RJM Builders all possess high-end skills, knowledge and a shared vision for the important work we do.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create individual sanctuaries, by blending old world values with new world innovation. This vision suits all sized builds as we approach each project with the mindset that everyone has their own unique vision of a perfect sanctuary. We are passionate about building and delivering not only a quality ‘’one of a kind’’ sanctuary but also an immersive and exciting journey, from our first ‘’meet and greet’’ to practical completion, and we even hang around afterwards for any smaller jobs you may need down the track. Our company’s core values have been created to help elevate that building journey, and they include:


Our first point of culture which, for us, expands to the old adage of ‘’together everyone achieves more’’, and this couldn’t ring truer throughout the building journey. Our team doesn’t stop with RJM, it extends to all of our contractors, suppliers, architects, engineers, other industry colleagues, and importantly the client!!


A core value that ensures all work is delivered to highest quality standard, as we treat all work from planning and design through to construction with respect for the project as though it were our own. Our team takes pride in knowing that the work we complete is made public for the community to see, knowing that our craftsmanship may be recognised, and hoping that we can creating masterpieces of our own into the future.


Communication plays a large part in our culture and vison, and in this way we are forging changes in the building industry. Open lines of communication between builder and client are prioritised to ensure quick responses to any questions or requests you may have. It is important to ensure everyone is always on the same page during a construction project and our project management software allows this to be possible. On the jobsite you will always be welcomed with a warm hello from our team who are always excited to show you the work they have done.


RJM sees our team go from apprentices to project mangers and builders. When we grow together everyone is invested in the same result which is an excellent building journey for our clients. We also find growing with new innovative technologies, tools, software, and management techniques sees our company at the forefront of new building solutions. These innovative solutions provide us with insight on how to deliver a high-end product accompanied by an outstanding experience.


Our team is committed to delivering an exceptional quality product knowing that good enough is just not good enough. We are committed to improving the communities we work within to better improve the local culture and its surrounding environment not only with an exceptional finished project but also with how we deliver it.


Integrity is a core value culture RJM pushes to be recognised for. Whilst striving to be the new brand of builder and setting the standard for a new era of building and builders, we endeavour to keep all promises made in the company among employees, industry colleagues, sub-contractors and the client. Most importantly there is no corner-cutting or quick-fix hidden solutions. All of our building practises and methods abide strictly to relevant codes, standards and regulations in the building and construction industry, put forward by governing bodies such as QBCC.
It is these core values, the individuals in our team, and the wider RJM community that continues to drive RJM Builders to reach its vison in the creation of individual sanctuaries whilst delivering a rewarding, enjoyable building experience like no other.
