Chirio & Sons has been the name behind the construction, renovation or refurbishment of some of Cairns’ most well-known commercial and tourism buildings. From shop fit-outs to commercial shed construction, from disabled facilities to the bars of pubs and clubs.  Here’s a few examples:

Chirio & Sons has worked with many home owners and architects to create quality, custom-built new homes and renovations in suburbs across Cairns. They’ve built homes from the ground up, renovated bathrooms, extended patios, built driveways and kitchens, and even the odd garden shed. They’ve built some beautiful private homes around Cairns. But better than that, they’ve built lasting relationships with many repeat customers and their families.

Just ask Murray:

“Chirio & Sons are locals to Cairns and I knew Darren’s father when he was in business many years ago. Whether it’s carrying out major upgrades or brand new properties, there’s no better builder I place my trust in. I highly recommend Chirio & Sons to anyone who wants to receive exceptional standard of service, delivery and build quality.”
Murray Moule, FGF Developments


From simple one-off repairs, to monthly maintenance schedules, Chirio & Sons look after several large-scale commercial properties for customers like Woolworths, Hungry Jacks and Cairns Airport. This work can take Darren and his team from Mt Isa to Weipa, or just around the corner to The Woolshed.

Nothing is too much trouble for a Chirio.

“We have been working with the Chirio Family for almost 20 years, both on commercial and residential projects. We keep coming back because of the quality of the finished job, practical solutions to often complex problems, Darren’s relationships with other quality trades and his flexibility allowing us to continue trading during major improvements.
Above all, we have good reason to trust our significant investments with the Chirios and I have watched Lance develop into a terrific person and builder. As such I am confident the third generation will carry on the legacy. We trade 16 hours, 7 days and when we run into trouble, or need routine maintenance one call is all it takes. The Chirio’s list of quality regular clients over a long period of time says it all. You get what you pay for.”

Dominic Davies, Owner, The Woolshed
