Celebrating 50 remarkable years at Kane Constructions

13th December, 2023

On Saturday night, we united to pay tribute to Jonathan Forster, our visionary founder and Chairman, who embarked on Kane's incredible journey as a spirited 26-year-old Englishman half a century ago.

From a modest office above Geddes Antiques in High Street Armadale, Jonathan's passion for Kane's growth laid the foundation for the thriving business we know today. Under Jonathan’s stewardship, Kane has evolved into a beacon of empowerment, recognised as The Kane Way. Jonathan's five decades of leadership have left a legacy of opportunity, fun, professionalism, fulfilment, growth, and seamless succession.

As we celebrated Kane's rich history and iconic projects, Saturday night was also a heartfelt thank you to Jonathan, who announced his well-deserved retirement.

On behalf of our board and Kane family, past and present, we express our deepest gratitude for creating Kane, supporting career development, and championing succession as a key foundation for Kane's ongoing success. We wish him an incredible retirement and thank him for his legacy which we hope will endure well beyond his tenure.
