About us

It all starts with experience – discover Blint’s history and our goals for the future


About Blint

Our founder Ron Blint established Blint Design + Construction in 1972 based on a passion for quality design and craftsmanship, passed down through generations of the Blint family.

Ron’s love for working with his hands was fostered by his grandfather, who helped him develop carpentry skills he said could be used to build better lifestyles.

With the continual redevelopment in Bayside, Blint has rebuilt and renovated many homes in the area incorporating exciting design and environmental features that still maintain this prestigious region’s integrity.


The new generation of Blint leaders

2017 was a pivotal year for Blint, with its founder Ron Blint handing over the reigns to Construction Manager Michael James.

This new generation of leaders helps maintain the principles of quality and craftsmanship on which the Blint company was founded, 46 years ago.

As we enter Blint’s 47th year, our focus has not changed from designing and constructing beautiful spaces, improving your lifestyle, and maintaining the integrity of our Bayside community.

Anne and Michael Gregory

Ron Blint struck us as a man of his words, that he understood the culture of building in the Bayside area, he demanded good and reliable tradesmen, and he provided us with an Architect who met with us, discussed our brief and then designed to our specifications and our land the building that we chose.

Ian and Li

It had been difficult to find a builder who would take on our double storey extension plan on a small block. Other builders brushed it aside as too hard basket with tight council regulations.
Blint took on this challenge and made it a breeze from design to building. Blint understood the local building regulation, scoring Council approval on first application.

Bruce Wilson

From the first meeting Scott and the Blint team led by Michael James were approachable and helpful. The discussion and design work cleverly addressed our needs and incorporated additional storage in a loft above the new garage. Throughout this preparatory process we were supported with advice and suggestions. Plans were revised when needed and we were kept informed of site and council planning requirements.

When you choose Blint, you choose:

The key to a great build is a high-quality design and architecture plan.

With a team of in-house designers, we work hard to create a plan that will not only look great, but improve your home’s functionality, practicality, and flow.

We choose to engage only the most experienced and professional builders to bring your design to life.

Modern building techniques that not only meet but exceed the industry standard, creating a space that works in harmony with you, your family, and the environment we share.
Whether it’s a sensitive and sympathetic expansion of an older home or a totally new construction, the Blint stamp of quality, excellence and design innovation will shine through.

Working strictly in Melbourne’s Bayside region, we’ve got an intimate knowledge of bylaws and permits required by the Bayside, Glen Eira, and Kingston councils.

This familiarity helps us create a design we know will abide by all rules, keeping your project moving and eliminating the need to backtrack and alter plans.

As important as aesthetics are, we never compromise on functionality. Helping create a space that lets you live a better lifestyle is what Blint is all about.

We know how to enhance your lifestyle in our community by creating a better space for you and your family.

Blint Design + Construction represents excellence and real quality, based on more than 40 years of building and design experience in Melbourne’s Bayside.
