Conecta is excited to welcome Alchemy Construct as a new partner. As we introduce each new partner, we’d like our community to get to know them more and understand what makes them different.
Who are Alchemy Construct and what are their values?
Alchemy Construct is a respected Melbourne builder that specialises in commercial construction, fitouts and refurbishment. The company prides itself on its personal approach to both client relationships and team culture.
In their own words: Alchemy’s philosophy is “to be exceptional in our project delivery, to exceed our clients’ expectations and to always approach our projects with a positive and passionate attitude.”
Alchemy’s mission is to be the most trusted builder in its market by providing high-level customer service and delivering excellence in all its projects.
Founded by Jamie Nicholson, who recognised a gap in the market for sophisticated, high-end commercial builds, Alchemy has grown in its relatively short life to become a trusted name in the industry, whose workforce is doubling in size every year.
The company’s values – hard work, skill, positivity, passion, loyalty and going the extra mile – are reflected in its people, with every team member carefully selected for their skills, personalities and how they align with the core tenets of the business.
What is it like to work at Alchemy Construct?
Alchemy’s company culture sets it apart from its competitors. Working at Alchemy, team members are part of an environment that feels more like a family than a workplace, where everyone is valued and genuine friendships are fostered and celebrated.
A priority at Alchemy is the learning and development of its team members, with the view to helping them grow and excel within the business.
Founder and Director Jamie says “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.”
What do employees say about Alchemy?
Employees say the ‘family feel’ that Jamie and the Alchemy leadership team have cultivated and the ability to work alongside knowledgeable, reliable colleagues are the best things about working at the company.
Some of Alchemy’s notable projects include refurbishments of the Melbourne Town Hall, which were recently delivered and include the addition of a gallery space and upgrades to the Old Melbourne Gaol courtyard. The Old Melbourne Gaol project, one of Alchemy’s first, saw the restoration of a heritage wall, installation of blue stone benches and outdoor facilities.
Alchemy’s key clientele have been in the education and civic sectors, having delivered projects for RMIT, Deakin, Monash and Melbourne Universities, however as the company moves into 2021 its aim is to diversify its offering and enter new markets.
Currently, Alchemy is delivering Stage 1 of the Aikenhead Centre for Medical Discovery, Australia’s first hospital-based biomedical engineering research centre, at St Vincent’s Hospital.
