Capabilities - Alchemy Construct

Inspirational spaces need precise processes.


We treat every project as a flagship for our client, no matter its scale.

We’re proud to say we’ve worked on some of our city’s most prominent and beloved destinations, including the National Gallery of Victoria, the Melbourne Aquarium and Federation Square. We’re trusted with internationally renowned projects because we’ve continuously proved our Tier One capabilities.

Our core team members are experts in engineering, project management, design management, building contracting, and construction management. Our methods harness this collective knowledge to ensure every job is a flagship job. And even the most complex projects are always completed on time and on budget.

Building Contracting

Alchemy has a fully-resourced estimating team with great industry and trade contacts, consistently achieving value-for-money and highly competitive tender submissions under the traditional fixed lump sum, construct-only contracting basis.

Despite this engagement requiring execution to fully coordinated drawings, specifications and schedules, Alchemy always adds value through pro-active input for construction detailing and buildability aspects to the project’s benefit.

Design and Construct

Our team of highly experienced and technical personnel lead the design team in developing and quickly finalising documentation to strict accord with our client’s principal project requirements, professionally presenting the design to achieve a timely approval milestone.

Alchemy excels managing the multi-disciplinary team, ensuring the documentation is fully coordinated, working collaboratively whether the design consultants are novated or we’ve collated our own team of quality professionals.

Construction Management

This method of delivery is very popular for complex projects with site constraints and technical challenges, such as hospital works or specialist research laboratories, reaping the benefits on the Managing Contractor‘s buildability and VM input.

Alchemy is highly adept in this model, working in an open and transparent manner to prioritise trade letting aligned with the critical-path programme. Our team work closely with the client’s PM and QS to control costs, packaging trade works to guard against variations, providing budget certainty once underway with regular and coordinated cost reports.

Early Contractor Involvement

Major redevelopment and refurbishment projects have inherent risks associated with existing (latent) conditions that can’t readily be investigated by the design team, including the serviceability and Code compliance of base building infrastructure services or structural elements. The engagement of Alchemy to provide Early Contractor Involvement reaps major benefits to our clients, with technical reports and feedback informing the subsequent design and detailing for the tender phase.

In construction there’s risks that can be controlled with initiatives, and Alchemy has regularly provided our clients with an ideal opportunity to guard against various project risks coming to fruition with insightful input and clarity of the existing conditions.


Our diverse range of experience equips us to work in all sectors of the commercial building industry. We build for education, government, medical and science, aged care, sports and leisure, and community projects.

We’re ready and able to take care of construction, building, fit-outs and refurbishment for each job from the recanting stage through to the finishing touches.
