OUR HISTORY / OUR FUTURE
Our company began in 1990 with Theo Laggner at the helm. Theo started his carpentry career back in 1968 with his brother Kurt, realising that there is a great future in carpentry and building. They went onto building a countless number of homes throughout Canberra including stints in Sydney and Orange NSW. Theo has experienced seeing Canberra grow into a fine city as it is today.
Steve Laggner, Theo’s son, entered the building game in 1990 and quickly completed his carpentry and joinery apprenticeship with his father in 1993. Steve went onto university to complete his Construction Management and Economics Degree in building in the year 2000. As time went on our company successfully went on building many Canberra extensions and renovations in the Canberra and Queanbeyan region.
We registered a new trade mark in 2006 – “Building Tomorrows Heritage”™(Trade Mark Number 1129603). We believe your home will last into the distant future, becoming your heritage. Our current company Laggner Constructions was established in the year 2012.
After a few years of putting off retirement due to the love of the industry, Theo hung up his nail bag in 2012 to rekindle his passion with opals. Theo passed on years of knowledge and enthusiasm to both of his sons. Steve became the proud operator of Laggner Constructions Pty Ltd and is looking firmly towards a bright future to building tomorrows heritage™ in the Canberra area. Steves brother Andrew is solidly working within the company as the assistant carpenter.
In 2015 Laggner Constructions celebrated it’s 25th year in building in the local area of Canberra. We continue to serve the Canberra region and build custom Canberra renovations.
Steve and Andrew completed a large extension and renovation of our existing home. We are thrilled with the results. It’s a beautiful space and Steve and Andrew showed great care and attention to the details, particularly when trying to reconcile the old house with the new sections. We would gladly recommend them.

We chose Steve and his team to build and manage a significant custom extension to our home. Despite being in an unpredictability tricky season to build due to the pandemic, Steve was always professional, calm honest and never cut corners. We are so pleased with the end result of our extension
Michael and An
We engaged Laggner Constructions to put in two attic ladders. The quotes were competitive, the product delivered was good quality and the installation process was very well managed. We were in the middle of a lot of renovation activity and were juggling many tradesmen in several worksites in the house, but Steve and his team were unfazed by it all.

Ben - Turner ACT
We know it has been a while since you finished our laundry, but we just wanted to let you know that (nearly a year on!) we are still as pleased with it as we were on the day it was finished.

We’re now several months into the brand new era of family life that began when we moved into the extended home that Steve and his team built for us.

I was very pleased with the work Steve Laggner did for us. Steve replaced a portion of an eave in a very awkward position high above a cellar. Steve had all the scaffolding required which reduced the cost compared to a competitor. The job was done perfectly, was painted and at the end site cleaned. I will certainly recommend Steve
