Introduction

Merkon Constructions was established in 1986 by Peter and Jim Mercoulia. Both had completed tertiary studies and graduated from the diploma of Building RMIT followed by many years in the employment of some of Melbourne’s leading construction companies. Having reached management level and worked on many major Melbourne projects a decision was made to pursue a new venture and Merkon Construction was established.

The company grew steadily from humble beginnings seeing through the many challenges facing a new and growing business and the ever changing economic environment. Flexibility and the ability to adapt to the construction needs of the community was a very important step in the continued growth of the business.

Hard work focused on the fostering of long term and lasting relationships based on mutual respect with all business partners including Clients, Building consultants, Government departments, Contractors and Employees ensured the prosperity of Merkon Constructions and enabled it to grow to its present status.

Today Merkon Constructions is a mid tier construction company operating predominately in the Melbourne CBD and metropolitan areas and country Victoria. With an annual turnover of around $50.0m we employ a permanent workforce of approximately 52 employees supported by regular teams of specialized sub-contractors, suppliers and construction services consultants as required to meet project commitments.

Peter and Jim are both still actively involved with the day to day management of the business and are well supported by a dedicated and loyal workforce.
