Get To Know Us And How We Work!

Sussex Construction is a locally owned and operated company in Helena, Montana. Since 1996, we have been hard at work creating several quality Helena communities that include: Heron Creek, Ridgeview, and Sussex Park. The inspiration for our name came from co-founder Bekka’s childhood home – Sussex, England. Along with a penchant for tea and gardening, Bekka brought with her an understanding that homes should be built to last for generations to come.

Ron has been intrinsically involved in the building community of Helena. In 2003 & 2005 Ron was awarded the Builder of the Year award by the Home Building Industry Association (HBIA). Ron has been a part of the State of Montana Building Codes Council since 2009, and from 2011-2012 Ron was the Montana Builders Association President.

Sussex is truly an outlier when it comes to quality and the customer service provided. 
I can say as a first time home buyer, who was hesitant about the process , Ron and the entire Sussex team made it a very special time. 
Thank you!

“We were amazed by the quality of the construction and attention to detail in our Sussex built home.  From the finest finishings to complete landscaping, Sussex excelled!  Living in Heron Creek has surpassed all of our expectations!  The surroundings are amazing and all the neighbors are wonderful!  What a great community! “

~Mark & Kara Pallister

“From the very beginning, I simply did not want to spend my time pouring through thousands of options from faucets to flooring.  Bekka and the Sussex team presented me with great choices and the process went beautifully. Building the home was a smooth, positive experience and I appreciated their guidance.”
