What We Stand For
We exist to create Buildings of Impact because we believe great visions deserve to be realized. We are experts in social infrastructure construction, and we are honoured to build projects that serve communities and enhance lives.
Spaces where you are born, spaces where you learn, spaces where you care for elderly family members, spaces where you are treated when you are ill, spaces where you can excel at sport, spaces where you can enjoy your local community and more.
Our mission has always been to be the most trusted builder in our market, by delivering high-level customer service and excellence in construction projects and by always being willing to go the extra mile. Success for us stands wholly with success for the clients at the end of the project.
We build from the inside out - with transparency and integrity to produce projects of the highest calibre and quality.
Our central value of inclusivity filters throughout the business, and our experience of every facet of the construction industry spans decades. We are a high energy company and anyone joining us does so at a very exciting and empowering time.
Jamie Nicolson MD: "To be exceptional in our project delivery, to exceed our clients expectations and to always approach our projects with a positive and passionate attitude."
"Culture is everything to our business. We strive to create an environment where nobody wakes up and dreads going to work. We believe high performance happens in an environment where you feel valued, appreciated, where the structure helps support you and fosters confidence. We strive to create an inclusive and equal work environment where every staff member is part of our Alchemy family.”
We specialise in spaces that service and inspire communities. From schools, hospitals and galleries to aged care and early learning centres – at Alchemy, a job well done is one that helps forge connection, learning and growth.
After we’ve completed each job, we then have the privilege of handing over new public spaces to the locals who need them. Then, we get to stand back and witness the facilities flourish. We know that before the first soil is broken, the strongest foundations have to be built from trust, respect and mutual understanding. So our processes are always collaborative, open and rigorously executed.
By building a team and culture that puts our people, our relationships, the quality of the process and build before anything else, we create a reputation that attracts the most visionary clients, architects and projects. We collaborate with our clients and project partners as equal peers, working harmoniously with them to achieve their vision and delivering an exceptional build process and outcome. We employ the latest technologies to improve our operations and lead a global conversation that champions visionary people and projects from around the world to inspire our team and our industry peers. We have brought together experts from every section of the construction industry to provide an exemplary service to clients and an incredible environment to excel in.
Why Work With Us?
We have worked in every sector of the building industry. We bring our Tier 1 experience and the Tier 1 level of sophistication to every project we do. We have innovative systems and processes which help to nurture new talent and provide huge opportunities for career growth. We have experts and mentors within the business with decades of experience always able and very willing to help nurture the new generation of construction professionals. We believe that character is priceless and the character you bring to an organisation is a fundamental component of success within that business.
We focus on building very positive relationships on our projects with our clients and the rest of the project team – on building project teams that work well and cohesively together – at the end of the day the construction industry is relationship based. We strive to ensure that everyone on the project delivery team feels pride at the end of a project through the transparent way we communicate and the integrity with which we build to produce quality projects and outcomes.
Wellington Child & Family Hub
Alchemy was engaged to deliver the new, purpose-built Wellington Child and Family Hub in Mulgrave for the City of Monash. The project is designed by the talented AOA Christopher Peck Architects to replace the existing aged kindergarten that had insufficient capacity for the increased demand in the local community. Initial works required demo of the existing Wellington Preschool and Mulgrave Maternal Healthcare buildings, and Alchemy managed works carefully from the outset, given the site is surrounded by residential properties and local shops, so all site activities and deliveries are keeping disruptions to an absolute minimum.
The new Hub offers brand new kindergarten rooms, maternal, child health and specialist consulting rooms, a community playgroup room and multi- purpose family room, all purpose built and will provide a truly state-of-the- art Childcare and Family facility. Ancillary works included a welcoming yet secure entry foyer, supporting amenities, outdoor education landscape areas and associated civil and site infrastructure services works.
This facility is the first of its kind in Monash and demonstrates a commitment to improving the accessibility and quality of early childhood services in the growing population of the Monash municipality. A particular focus is the major works around some established and wonderful trees, and the site team are doing a great job to protect these mature specimens.
Pascoe Vale Primary School
Early works involved installing a temporary fire exit from Level 1 and extending Building A to the west. We revised ramps and built a new lift to increase the accessibility to Building T in accordance with DDA standards. Now, there’s a more accessible entry to the school and easier connection between admin and Level 1, an internal fire staircase and new staff facilities that meet current BCA coverage. The refurbishment of Building A linked to the new lift, improved amenities and modernised learning spaces to accommodate more flexible pedagogies. Meanwhile, we worked on the in-ground stormwater and sewer services to ensure the school’s ageing infrastructure stays working at its best for decades to come.
Outside, we re-landscaped the surrounding gardens to create a new memorial and commemorative space featuring the relocated cenotaph and memorial plaques.
Clubhouse Facility, Lifestyles Deanside
This incredible project provides resort style living for residents, offering a fantastic lifestyle. With 24/7 access to the highest quality, 5-star resort luxury facilities, the new clubhouse features resort amenities for the homeowners. These include indoor and outdoor pools, spas and steam room, a movie cinema, lounge, gym, games and activities rooms, and extensive outdoor facilities and courts.
Alchemy Construct have been engaged on a D&C basis, providing great opportunities for client value management and the resolution of specific detailing. Designed by DKO Architecture the concept is inspired by a colour palette and textures extracted from Australian natural landscape, providing a raw, earthy appeal. Architect: DKO Architecture
