THE LYTTON DC STORY

Managing director, Richard McDonald grew up at LYTTON, an irrigation and grazing property located in the Riverina region of southern New South Wales. Rich lived on the property between the age of 2 and 27 years. LYTTON taught Richard his most defining lesson. One's relationship with their home is a romance from which the fabric of life is sewn.

 

With respect to LYTTON's legacy, the LYTTON DC crew dedicate the best we have to offer; our care, invention and craftsmanship.

OUR LYTTON TEAM

RICHARD MCDONALD
MANAGING DIRECTOR / FOUNDER

Richard McDonald has a unique eye and strength for designing and building just about anything.​

 

A product of five generations of self-taught engineers that specialised in irrigation infrastructure development, civil, industrial, and domestic construction. From these life influences, Rich has developed the ambition to build anything he finds inspiring and challenging, and one of his happiest forms is when he is doing so.

 

Rich's focus is on the efficiency of the project. Addressing problems through a buildability approach, he has the talent not only to produce complex beautiful features but to integrate these features into the structure as a whole.
