About us

Rick Altavilla


It all started at a very young age, apprenticed by my father, Richard Altavilla Snr. I obtained my Carpentry & Joinery License by the age of 18, followed by a complete Builders License by 21.  I furthered my education in Project Management at UTS in 2011. 


My family and my life in the beautiful Blue Mountains is what motivates me to grow both as a builder and as an individual. I have a particular love of the local, historic style architecture, respecting and preserving original styles, with a modern approach. Being a builder in the Blue Mountains requires a lot of creativity and adaptability, working within such a dramatic natural environment. 


Let’s chat and bring your vision to life.

Meet the team

At Lightscape Building, we pride ourselves on having a large, dedicated team of professionals. This means we can manage multiple projects at once, whether they're big or small.


With more hands on deck, your project gets completed faster and runs more smoothly. Our friendly and skilled team is always ready to bring their expertise to every job, ensuring high-quality results and a stress-free experience for you.




Our relationship with you is paramount, and we want you to stay in the know.


We promise to keep you informed through daily site reports, immediate updates on discoveries backed by photographic evidence and weekly site meetings to go through where we are and where we’re going.

We understand a major concern when choosing a builder is what happens if something goes wrong. That's why we have a standard 10 year structural guarantee (4 years above industry mandated standard), and 7 years on workmanship and materials. 


So, we’ve got your back for the next decade!


Our budget options are as flexible as our construction options, we work with what the individual project requires. 


We will provide you with a live costing and construction program, so you can see where we are in the build, how much it has cost so far and where we are projected to go. 

"On time and on budget! I’m so happy with my new garden studio, and grateful to the team at Lightscape Building for executing this beauty. Rick was especially accomodating and helpful during the design stage, in consultation with the architect. And all the trades who put this build together were polite, cheerful, hardworking and patient with my questions and concerns throughout this process. Thanks everyone!"
