Our story

Canny have been designing and building homes across Melbourne for over 20 years, giving us the experience and design credibility to tackle everything from new homes and custom swimming pools to medium density and commercial projects.

In the early 1990’s Damian Canny started the business alongside business partner Lachy Watson, with the purpose of renovating houses and selling them on a speculative basis. As the business developed, our reputation as a credible and innovative renovation builder spread across Melbourne which resulted in us receiving an influx of briefs from new clients. In the early 2000’s Canny brought the design function in-house, employing a team of twelve architects, interior designers and drafts people which led to the completion of our first custom designed and built home in 2003.

Since then, Canny has grown to a team of 50 professionals, who work collaboratively on each project to ensure a seamless process with no surprises along the way. We only use the latest and highest quality materials and building systems, fittings, fixtures and equipment to ensure your project is delivered to the highest standard possible, on time and on budget.
