What We Stand For
We are a progressive, ambitious and principled Tier 2 construction company passionate and specialised in creating visionary buildings of impact™ which build our social infrastructure and serve our communities.
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.
