Since then he has become an award-winning home builder, successful businessman, author and popular TV presenter with an ever-increasing profile.
Luke owns LVD Industries Pty Ltd, a building company that works with top architects building and renovating high-end custom homes throughout Sydney for a clientele that includes many well-known celebrities. In 2009 his company was recognised as executing the best renovation in NSW by the industry body and won Look Home Magazine’s Popular Choice award for ‘Best Renovation 2009′.
In 2004, Luke Van Dyke was nominated in the category of ‘Best New Talent’ at the Australian Logies and his television career has since gone from strength to strength. He appears in the lifestyle program Australian Renovation on Foxtel’s How To Channel. He also appeared on the Nine Network series entitled Do It, Do it Green and the specialised tradesman challenge, Jack Of All Trades.
Luke is regularly asked to make guest appearances at trade shows and celebrity events nationally. He gives live presentations at the national HIA Home Shows and is considered a specialist in the use of new and energy-efficient building materials in the construction industry.
Luke is also 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.
He published his first book Home Maintenance with Luke van Dyck in August 2011 and is a contributor to a range of home renovation magazines and national print, online and broadcast media.
Highly professional and punctual with a very easy, affable personality, Luke is a very popular, professional and credible presenter for all things building related.
