Sectors / Specialisations
Building Engineering commenced operations in Melbourne in 2003. As we celebrate our 20th year at Building Engineering, we are proud to have successfully delivered over 400 projects to a total value in excess of $1 billion across a wide range of industry sectors.
Proudly Australian and privately owned, Building Engineering delivers successful construction projects with certainty and real value.
Across a wide range of commercial, education, health, community, and industrial projects, we devise cost-effective construction strategies that protect and advance our client’s interests.
From refurbishments and fit-outs to entirely new buildings, Building Engineering produces high-quality results — safely, efficiently, reliably, and at the right price.
Project quality is our highest priority. Our management team includes qualified engineers. We believe our forward planning to “think ahead” is the best in the business. We undertake thorough risk assessments prior to tendering, identifying all possibilities for the best investment results for our clients.
Our impeccable record is defined by the leadership of directors Tom Basel and Chris Doufas, whose partnership and core values underpin all facets of the business. Tom and Chris have worked in close partnership to build a successful, well-respected commercial construction company, with the bulk of our work coming from repeat clients.
