About Us


Academy Construction & Development (formerly Academy Developments) commenced operation in 2002. Our main operations and services are development, management, design and construction. Our experience and expertise originated in traditional trade skills and has evolved into a sophisticated organisation offering a diverse range of services.
We have an extensive residential design and construction heritage that spans over 20 years. To date, over 250 townhouses and units have been constructed, with a total value of nearly $200 million. All projects were completed on time and on budget, with no lost time injuries recorded.

Our capabilities include:

  • Development Feasibility Analysis
  • Development Planning
  • Construction System Design
  • Design and Construction Contracting
  • Construction Management
  • Joint Venture and Share of Profit Arrangements

We remain focused on residential housing. Our team's point of difference is a determination to understand and implement the requirements of our customers in two ways. Firstly, we recognise the needs of the resident. We build homes for people. The home needs to be functional, reliable, represent good value, and last a long time. Secondly, we have a strong commitment to clients and take seriously our responsibility to deliver in accordance with contracts.
It is our policy to perform in accordance with all relevant building and construction standards to the highest possible level.

company history

We were formed in 2002 in recognition of the relationship that had developed between two close family companies in the building industry; Academy Properties and LJR Constructions. Academy Properties, formed by Charlie Zeaiter and his brothers, had completed a number of development projects together with builders, LIR Construction, formed by the Beaini brothers, Louron, Ronnie and John. The Zeaiter family owned and operated, Academy Tiles at Artarmon. The Beaini family evolved as builders from a concrete and construction background. Between us, we were able to pool all the necessary skills to complete large scale property developments and construction projects.
