Director and Project Manager
Paul worked as a labourer on weekends and during holidays while he studied at high school and then university, where he completed Mechatronic Engineering and Maths & Computer Science degrees, before deciding to join the family business. Paul went on to complete his carpentry trade certificate to ensure he had a good understanding of construction. Now predominantly office based, he is responsible for the management of the business.

After graduating and working as an architect in France, Lauren worked on the post-earthquake rebuild in Christchurch (NZ) for a few years. After a year working on architectural projects in England, she is now settling in Adelaide. Lauren joined the team as a project administrator, mainly working on designs, construction drawings, schedules and orders, to ensure the works on site can progress as smoothly as possible.

We absolutely love our new Hocking-built house which felt ‘homely’ as soon as we moved in. It is well known that the process of building a house can be an extremely stressful time, however we found the process exciting and enjoyable. The Hocking builders and support team were all very friendly and their knowledge and expertise helped to guide the decision-making process. Visitors to the house have all commented on the high quality of the build and workmanship.
Our building with Hocking Constructions was a very positive experience. The builders were all friendly, approachable and respectful. They understood we were living on site with two young children and were comfortable and adaptable to our constant presence. We are happy with our new extension in every way. It is beautiful and professional and exceeded our expectations. We have also appreciated their after service the year following the build.
So we came up with a house design beautiful in its simplicity, but oh so complicated in its build, as only Troppo can do, and set Hocking Constructions to work to build it. Hocking Constructions have changed our minds about builders forever. On time, on budget and perfectly built is a given for them. Add to this creative ways to save cost, endless enjoying of the challenges of problem solving, a team of highly skilled trades, always great communication. We love the house they built us, and now can’t imagine building without Rob and Paul.

I was very pleased with the job that Hocking Constructions did in building Naiko Retreat. The project certainly had its challenges being in a remote location and being totally off the grid. They handled these challenges very well. The quality of the build is excellent and the service was exemplary. I have no hesitation in recommending them
Thank you Paul, Rob, Leanne and all the team at Hocking Constructions for our amazing home! The quality of the workmanship is first class and they were so accommodating and easy to work with. Whoever said building a new home is stressful obviously didn’t engage Hocking Constructions!
