We are one of Australia’s pioneering social enterprise construction companies.
We were founded by Hedayat (Nick) Osyan, a former refugee, whose goal is to give back to the community who has welcomed him with opportunities.
Our mission is to empower those who have sought refuge and asylum in Australia to build new lives and make Australia their homes just as they make the environment they construct for you feel like home.
On the best available evidence, 17 per cent of humanitarian migrants are in paid work after being in Australia for 18 months. While employment rates improve with time, to get more refugees into jobs more quickly would be a triple-win: it would benefit vulnerable people, boost the budget and improve social cohesion.

Since being founded in 2018, Community Construction has given a fresh start to 35 new Australians and their families – and counting. The more we grow, the more people we can help assimilate into the community. So get in touch with us today
Refugees gain local experience and receive around $500 a week income
Three of our workers have established their own tiling business after the support and training they received
“They become very confident and independent and try to help other people, while only two years ago they were dependent on Centrelink.”
