Celebrating 100 years in business

Kennett Pty Ltd is an award-winning, family-run commercial construction company, first established in 1914, with offices in Adelaide, Melbourne and Mount Gambier.

Founders and brothers, Clifford and Charles Kennett began trading from their family home in West Croydon as ‘Kennett Brothers’ until the 1970s when the name ‘Kennett Pty Ltd’ was adopted, and then soon after, by 1976 the Mount Gambier office was established. Now with offices in Adelaide, Melbourne and Mount Gambier, Kennett is an extremely well established and respected construction company operating across South Australia and Victoria.

Kennett has now been successfully in business for 105 years and continues to deliver building success in the aged care, leisure, education, retail, government, automotive, health and commercial sectors. Today, brothers Scott and James Kennett run the company across Adelaide, Melbourne and Mount Gambier, and their father John Kennett is still on the board and is actively involved. Together, the family has forged strong relationships with architects, consultants and clients across South Australia and Victoria and are very passionate about delivering the highest quality projects and exceeding client expectations.

Celebrating 100 years of business, we continue to deliver building success in the aged care, education, retail, government, automotive, health and commercial sectors across the state.

First Generation, Kennett Bros

“I regard this project as a standout success. I was struck by the professional environment established from the very beginning, the tidiness of the site and the disciplined commitment to safety. Kennett always acted in Resthaven’s best interests.”
