Hutchinson Builders or Hutchies as they are commonly known are one of Australia’s largest construction companies. Given the size of their business, they don’t need to use space on their homepage to educate potential customers on who they are and what they do, as such they have decided to take up the entirety of the visitors screen with a slideshow of engaging photos and headlines that link to different sections of the website.
To navigate this site you can select the burger menu in the top left corner of the website which reveals the different sections of the website, which includes Projects, Capabilities, Careers and The Feed (which collects news coverage about Hutchies).
This is an amazing construction website, though companies smaller than Hutchies would have a tough time pulling this off given they don’t have the same mass brand recognition as this construction giant.
The first thing you see when you go to Boodle's website is a clear contact action which drives users to make an easy action and drives conversion. This is definitely one of the best above the fold sections of a construction website that we have seen in terms of conversion points!

It's hard to miss Yellow Hire's company branding with this eye-catching construction website design.
Right from first paint - in website terms, paint is referred to as loaded content on the website page - it is clear to see that you are on Yellow Hire's website. The distinct company branding is a clear stand out, and their website designer has used this attractive colour perfectly by only using it to highlight important actions and information they want the user to see or take.

Similar to the Earth Radar website, Lendlease uses a really engaging series of videos in its hero section.
Like Hutchies, Lendlease is another company that has already established its brand Australia wide, meaning it doesn’t need to budget as much space for telling people who they are and what they do.
Lendlease has a really accessible navigation menu at the top of the screen making it very easy for visitors to find the information they need. Just below the fold, Lendlease promotes their latest news in a very visual way with each article being promoted through a graphically designed card.
