About G.E. Hughes Construction Co.

History of G.E. Hughes Construction Co.

The Hughes Story is rooted in strong family tradition. The business was started by the late Garry Hughes in 1972 in partnership with his wife in the Adelaide Hills. He worked alongside his late father, Perce, who was a bricklayer himself.

The company has progressed from its smaller building services to the current much wider scope encompassing domestic, commercial, civil and industrial construction, as well as the haulage sector. The company has maintained the family tradition with multiple immediate and extended family members still at the wheel and in the engine room of the business.

The G.E. Hughes approach continues to be the provision of high quality services, driven by the ‘one stop source’ principle.
The company operates several divisions with extreme flexibly to provide a total ‘holistic’ service to clients.

The concept of a company with a ‘family’ of client diversity, provides an insight into the culture of ‘Building on Tradition’, which is key to the 50 years plus journey of G.E. Hughes.
