Allchin Builders: bringing great design to Gippsland

Back to news

Leigh Allchin has been modernising the home building landscape in the Warragul area since the launch of Allchin Builders in 2009. His focus on creative thinking delivers the inimitable ‘wow’ factor when it comes to modern home design.

A unique approach to home design

Allchin Builders operates primarily in Warragul, but also services a larger area reaching from the South Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, such as Berwick, and spanning from Traralgon to Philip Island. Leigh will be handing over the keys to 16 homes this year, his biggest year in business yet, and this growth and success is testament to his unique approach to home design.

“We start by sitting down with the client and going through their wish list. We then sit down with our two craftspeople and design the home to give them as much ‘out of the box’ thinking and ‘wow’ factor as possible. I’m a Master Builder Green Living Builder, so we design the home to be energy efficient, and aim for the best street appeal possible,” says Leigh.

Design quality and strong team the keys to success

“We always design the home to make the best use of the land, such as tiered levels on a steep block. As part of that design process, we’ve really broken the mould for Warragul and are delivering high standard, modern homes,” Leigh says.

Quality is key for Leigh’s clients. They are often building their third or fourth home, know what they want, and are happy to pay for a unique, quality home.

Leigh is, justifiably, proud of his team. “Our 75-strong team of tradies are locals and they’re keen and approachable. We build a relationship with our clients from day dot and try to make the design and build as easy as possible for them.”

The Dahlsens factor

Allchin Builders is supported by the team at Dahlsens Warragul as their preferred building materials supplier. Leigh says of Dahlsens Warragul, “The team at Dahlsens are really good! Since they’ve been back in town, they’ve been so reliable to deal with as far as we’re concerned.”

“Nothing’s too hard. A big part of our business is thinking outside of the box, and they’ll break the mould when we want to do something innovative or different for our clients.”

Dahlsens would like to thank Allchin Builders for their business and wish them continued success.
