Luke Van Dyck's Biography

At just 33 years of age, Luke Van Dyck is a third generation builder who has transitioned from completing his apprenticeship to becoming an award winning custom home builder, successful businessman, accomplished television presenter and in 2011, wrote and published his first book.


Building runs in Luke’s blood and based on Sydney’s northern beaches, LVD Industries Pty Ltd is Luke’s successful and award winning custom home building business. He has established a strong reputation working with well-known architects on the Northern Beaches, North Shore and Eastern Suburbs of Sydney and won Look Home Magazine’s Popular Choice award for “Best Renovation 2009.”

Considered as a specialist in the use of new and energy efficient building materials for the residential home market, Luke’s business specialises in the construction of new custom designed homes, single and second story extensions, renovations and spectacular hardwood decking for a clientele that also includes many well-known celebrities.

While completing his apprenticeship he was discovered on Sydney’s northern beaches and approached to do some modelling. Recognising the opportunity to make some extra money, he worked part-time as a successful model while focussing on completing his TAFE qualifications and becoming a licensed builder. The combined mix of his easy going and knockabout personality with his obvious passion and expertise in building led to an unexpected break that opened doors to globally recognised brands such as Coca-Cola, Kodak and Stimorol.

In 2002, Luke Van Dyck burst onto television screens across Australia with a presenting role on DIY Rescue on the Nine Network. This series screened nationally and led to the spin off series, Renovation Rescue, Renovate or Detonate and Renovation Rumble. With his television career going from strength to strength concept programs Do It, Do It Green and the specialised tradesman challenge, Jack Of All Trades all followed along with Australian Renovation on the Lifestyle Channel on Foxtel.

Luke Van Dyck is passionate about education in the residential building sector. Whether it’s to homeowners about how to build, renovate or maintain what is usually their single biggest investment or to builders and apprentices on the latest products available for residential homes, how to use them and most importantly his experience in what consumers expect from a tradesman. In August 2011, Luke’s first book called “Home Maintenance with Luke Van Dyck” hit the bookshelves nationally, offering homeowners the tips and step by step guidelines on maintaining their home. As a result of his public profile, Luke is regularly asked to make guest appearances at trade shows and celebrity events including regular live presentations at building and home shows nationally and he is a regular contributor to a range of national print, online and broadcast media.

With all of this going on, Luke continues to run his successful building business and also found the time to marry long-time sweetheart Aime and they became first time parents with the arrival of baby son Jensen in August 2012. Together Luke and Aime have bought, renovated and sold four homes together on Sydney’s Northern Beaches! An accomplished sportsman, in the rare moments Luke finds time to wind down you will always find him somewhere outdoors near the beach or lake indulging in his love of fast boats, water skiing mountain biking and wakeboarding.
