Dean Lythgo and long-term friend Tony Shadforth founded their multi-award winning construction company on the Sunshine Coast. Their goal was to bring their passion and expertise to the industry and to gain a solid reputation in the luxury housing and quality commercial buildings space.

Shadforth Lythgo has a very unique business model, given that the two business partners completed their apprenticeships together in the construction industry. They bring many (we won’t mention how many!) years of combined industry experience to the table as well as a very practical and hands-on approach to their work.

Managing a construction business in such a competitive marketplace presents plenty of challenges. When asked about these challenges Dean says, ‘Coordinating large scale projects requires plenty of multi-tasking including managing a number of contractors which can be demanding at times.’ But according to Dean the good times far outweigh the negatives. ‘We have a small team which works well managing projects and keeping our clients in touch and happy.’ Personal service and great client relationships feature very highly in the Shadforth Lythgo business.

Perhaps their many years working in construction and their shared beginnings working together as apprentices is responsible for their hands on approach to their work and to their customers. They have delivered the goods over many years and have plenty of satisfied customers, as well as numerous industry awards, to prove it. Click here to read testimonials.

After the busy working week, Dean enjoys his quiet time and also likes hanging out with the family at their farm. Like many Coast dwellers he enjoys surfing and fishing and also likes motor bikes.

Dean could be described as fair and easy going, a great combination for his team and his clients. If you would like to chat with Dean about your construction project, he would love to meet with you.
