About Us


The Rutherford Construction formula is clear and consistent communication, superior attention to detail and only utilising trusted, experienced and fully qualified tradespeople to deliver excellence.


We strive to complete all projects on time and within budget, and to make the experience as stress free as possible for all clients. Outstanding craftmanship is an operating norm.

Sam Rutherford, a fully qualified builder and carpenter, started the company in 2012. Younger brother Jake, a qualified carpenter joined Sam soon after and their close relationship and passion for building is evident for all to see.

We believe communication is key, especially face to face.

Throughout the whole project from planning, during the build, and even post completion, we will be in regular contact with clients to keep them informed.

Finally while the project is important, we never lose sight of the fact that we’re in somebody’s home. We take great pride in maintaining a clean and safe work site and looking after the surrounding environment.

Our reputation proceeds us


It was great working with the Rutherford Construction team. They made the experience a pleasure. All questions and queries were dealt with immediately. The team were always very polite and the work site was left clean daily! The quality of work is evident in the finish product! I definitely will use them again. Thank you to the team for my new granny flat! I love it.

We had Rutherford Construction build us a large double brick extension comprising of 3 new bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, living room and alfresco area in 2018. Sam was very thorough with detail and communication throughout the entire process maintaining professionalism at all times.

His entire team were very knowledgeable on the job requirements, helpful, friendly and always left the site neat and tidy. Two years on, we haven’t needed to call them back for any repairs or issues, so that speaks for itself in the level of quality not often found in the Sydney building industry.
I have already recommended Rutherford Construction to many people and will continue doing so. Very happy

Sam, Jake and his team of contractors were of the highest standard and integrity. Both Sue and I felt in very safe hands through what was not only a stressful program, but in most instances becomes one of the most valuable investments that one makes in their personal residence.
I would highly recommend the Rutherford team to anyone considering doing building works and would welcome any calls to discuss my thoughts in appointing the Rutherford Construction Group to any job that they were considering to embark on.
I wish Sam, Jake and their families best wishes and want to thank them for looking after us so well.
