Steve Hancock brings a ton of experience to building and construction. He has “been there and done that” so much that nothing surprises him.
Steve is the kind of guy you want in your corner. He is your “go to” man on ways to build your dream. As a builder by trade and a Green Smart professional, he is qualified to give you design ideas for energy-efficient ways of construction and living.
Steve is in his element meeting people, talking about construction, giving advice where he can, and helping them build their dreams.
Steve’s service culture was revealed at a young age. By 14, he had a business with 6 people working for him, including his grandmother. It was the height of conversation in the staff room of his secondary school how Steve was earning more than most of his teachers. His depth of experience grew quickly. And at 16, Steve started a part-time carpentry apprenticeship doing tech at nights and on the tools at the weekend.
By 17, high school was becoming an inconvenience to the running of his business and doing his apprenticeship so he left school. He did not realise it at the time but Steve was honing one of his most valuable skills - the ability to listen.
Over the following few years, he sold his business and qualified as a mobile mortgage lender for a major bank. At the age of 20, he completed the apprenticeship and then spent the following 10 years travelling abroad, working and studying in a total of 56 countries.
Since returning from abroad, Steve has entered into the next stage of his life, “and by far the most challenging”, he states - fatherhood. Together with his wife Helen, they have two beautiful children, Jarrod & Zoe, with both children having the same excitement to life as their father, which keeps their dad on his toes.
There’s not much Steve hasn’t done, seen or overcome. That’s why we put Steve in your corner to help you build your dream.
“Steve assisted in getting our vision onto paper for our renovation. He was wonderful to work with. He was respectful of us as people and our ideas. He worked collaboratively during the journey, communicated effectively and efficiently; no question was too small or not relevant for him to answer.
We feel that this is not just our renovation rather it is ours and Steve’s! He’s made the journey that personal. We think that everyone should have a ‘Steve’ for their renovation process!”

Sydney Select Constructions have just completed a renovation of the back of our 100 year old terrace in Stanmore. Throughout the process from tendering to handover, Steve, Dave, and the staff of Sydney Select were extremely professional with excellent communication between client and builders. Throughout the build Dave and his staff, particularly Ben and Josh, were great to work with. They were reliable, professional, highly skilled and committed to the job. They promptly dealt with any concerns we had and were accommodating of any changes we made along the way. [...]
