Services, Versatility & Delivery

Our Services

Alita Constructions can offer complete design and construct packages. We have an excellent working relationship with qualified draftsmen, engineers and building certifiers, ensuring that the most suitable option is provided to meet the client’s needs. These professionals are also familiar with the Building Code of Australia, relevant Australian standards and Local Authority requirements. This results in a quicker and smoother process of design and approval in addition to timely construction.

Versatility and Delivery

At Alita Constructions, we understand that the contract to build a project can be as important to the client as the project itself. We offer different types of contracts depending on various aspects, such as the type of project, the degree to which the client would like to be involved and the client’s budget. We are happy to formulate any of the following contracts to assist you in the successful delivery of your project:

Lump Sum Contract:

When a Lump Sum Contract is chosen, Alita Constructions uses documentation provided by the client to make calculations and produce a quotation. The client is able to negotiate with Alita Constructions regarding the finer details of the contract and to ascertain our responsibilities.

Design and Construct Contract:

When a Design and Construct Contract is chosen, Alita Constructions provides all the services, engages all the trades and includes all the design work to be carried out. All consultants and subcontractors are engaged, controlled and paid for by Alita Constructions. The client is involved throughout the design stage, and with the help of our consultants, the experience is stress free.

Cost Plus Contract:

When using a Cost Plus Contract, the client has to pay the actual cost incurred by Alita Constructions, plus an agreed percentage of that cost, which covers overheads and builders profit. The client can be actively involved in the building process by having access to all costs as well as working together with Alita Constructions to choose subcontractors and suppliers.

Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale Testimonial

Alita Constructions were awarded the contract for the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s Byford & Districts Country Club project after submitting a competitively priced and strong tender application.
Throughout the project, Alita Constructions continually made suggestions and gave advice to save costs, which was extremely helpful due to budget constraints. The team was always friendly and approachable and no request was too hard for them.
Given that the project was to construct a Community Facility, it was great to see Alita Constructions using local trades. The teamwork between Alita, the local trades, and the Shire ensured the project was completed within the Shires tight time frame of 24 weeks as well as coming in under budget and without any major safety incidents.
The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is very pleased with the outcome and would strongly recommend Alita Constructions to anyone considering building a Community Facility.

Commercial Showroom Development by Alita Constructions

Joondalup Showrooms

Alita Constructions have just completed our 1960m2 commercial complex on time and within budget.

This is the fourth, large building (all over 1500m2) we have had constructed.  The previous three, by three different builders and this was the first building to be built without a hitch.

Alita Constructions built the building to the standard originally promised.  In fact during construction they suggested improvements to the design always with cost in mind.  The building was built within the schedule and the quality was such that our leasing agents congratulated the builder on the quality which made it very easy to find tenants on our behalf.

Constant communication occurred between us and Alita Constructions.  The staff were very approachable, polite and friendly and obliging whenever possible.

Thank you Alita.  We have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone wishing to delve into the world of commercial building construction.

Beaver Tree Services Testimonial

Alita Constructions would like to thank Paul Harrison from Beaver Tree Services for his glowing testimonial of the recently completed project in Forrestdale. The team at Alita Constructions thoroughly enjoyed working as a team with Paul and Joe and thank them for having the confidence in building with Alita. 

Once the design process was complete, Alita Constructions began building our facility which was a highly professional and easy process.

APT

Advanced Polymer Technology had the pleasure of working with Alita Constructions on the build of our state of the art polyurethane manufacturing facility. As this is the first time Advanced Polymer Technology had built a commercial facility, the process was quite daunting to us until Alita Constructions came on board. We had ideas of what we wanted to build but were unsure of how it all would tie together, with the help of Alastair and his team of professionals we were able to figure out a design that best suited our needs and budget.

Once the design process was complete, Alita Constructions began building our facility which was a highly professional and easy process. Any queries we had were answered almost immediately & any issues were solved quickly. We were kept in the loop at all times and were told when major installs were happening so we could view them, which was fantastic and made us feel like we were a part of the team. Our build was completed within the specified time frame and budget. The handover process was quick and thorough and any post occupancy items are attended to quickly. 

I would like to thank Alastair and his team for making the build such an easy and enjoyable process. With the high level of client service we received and the high quality of the build, we recommend them to all those looking at building.”

Agrifil warehouse built by Alita Constructions

Agrifil

Alita constructions were selected to build our facility from a short list of four construction companies 2 years ago. They were easily selected because of their very professional approach to every detail of the very difficult and challenging design and layout of our project. Their “can do” culture within Alita came through very early in our discussions which also included level headed costings and understanding budgetary constraints.
The project was undertaken and completed within expected time frames and which also allowed for partial occupation while they very professionally worked around our day to day operations without any issues. This was very much appreciated and marveled.
In the eighteen months it took to build this difficult facility it was an absolute pleasure to have been able to talk with any personnel from Alita and discuss queries if and when they manifested. From accounts through to the managing director everybody was accessible and were more than happy to apportion time to talk. Project management was impeccable.
Alita built us a beautiful and functional building which we are very proud of and which is much talked about and marveled within the business community.
I recommend Alita very highly to any prospective client of theirs who may be considering a building project. I will use Alita again for any projects I may have going forward.

Darling Downs Church01

Free Reformed Church of Darling Downs

We, as the building committee for the Free Reformed Church of Darling Downs, had the pleasure of working alongside Alita Constructions in constructing our new place of worship. The nature of the project, given the vested interest of each church member, was to ensure the project was built on time and within budget. Alita Constructions’ professional approach and unwavering commitment was a key contributor to the success of the project. Their ability to understand our requirements, keen eye for detail, willingness to allow flexibility and on site planning and initiative ensured we received a building of a very high standard that we and the local community are very thankful for. For these reasons we would not hesitate to recommend Alita Constructions to any potential clientele who wish to engage their services.

Croker Construction

Alita Construction have just finished our new office & workshop Forrestdale and we couldn’t be happier.

We picked Alita from the three quotes based on price and experience.

All the planning consultations were pleasant experiences and they have friendly team.

Throughout the build they were always easy to get hold of and approachable.

We will recommend Alita to anyone.. You only have to drive around our business park & see that they are building 50% or more of the buildings. That speaks volumes to me.

Carey Community Centre by Alita Constructions

Carey Baptist College

During the construction of the Community Centre we considered Alita conducted their operations in a professional and helpful manner. To complicate the building process the Community Centre was built on the grounds within an operating school where consideration had to be made for the learning environment and safety of the students.

We considered Alita Construction completed works to a high standard and would recommend them based on our experience as capable builders.

I am writing in regard to the dealings that I have had with Alita Constructions.

Alita was recommended to me by a friend. I obtained 3 quotes and found Alita to be the best value for money so decided to use their services.

They listened to what I required and took the time to discuss things. I found through the whole process of building, if there were any issues, I could ring up and personally speak to Alistair and he solved any issues I had there and then.

We have used Alita Constructions for all our building projects in the past and will continue to do so in the future.  They are very professional and very competitive in an ever cost increasing market place.  Any issues we had during our projects were attended to immediately and Alistair Kleyn was always available to solve any issues that came up.  We can recommend Alita Construction anytime and our building at No 9 Gillam Drive, Kelmscott is proof of the quality workmanship they deliver.

I have had the pleasure of working with Alistair and the team at Alita Constructions for more than 10 years now and over that time they have proven to be very efficient company that conducts themselves with the utmost professionalism.

I enlisted the help from Alita Constructions to build my last 4 projects, the latest being a new 4 unit factory complex in Armadale. This was no simple build for Ed (building supervisor) as water tanks, filters and extensive drainage systems were required for recycling to one of the units. Many changes were made during the building process to make this possible and at no stage was I left to feel that my changes were too much trouble, all variations were made with ease and were cost effective. The Staff at Alita always communicated well with me during the building process with regular updates even whilst being overseas making the entire build relatively easy.

Alita’s work has always been of the highest quality and I would have no hesitation in recommending Alita Constructions to any potential client wishing to build a quality new Home or Factory.

Apple-Storage

Apple Storage

I am writing to thank and congratulate you on the completion of the Apple Storage units in Byford. In particular I would like to thank you for your flexibility, advice and diligence in relation to this project.

Initially I found that your quote on the construction of the 24 storage units was the most comprehensive quote and also provided the most information in relation to subcontractors and their pricings. The quote was also among the most reasonable. My decision to use Alita Constructions came down to my confidence that the quote was accurate and that the company understood the peculiarities of the site and what we were trying to achieve as an end result.

Your recommendations for minor changes and enhancements to the project were very much appreciated. As an example, your recommendation that we rebate the concrete floors to enable the roller doors to seal out any rain water was very helpful.

I was very impressed with the supervisor Hank, who was always available by telephone and happy to meet on site whenever necessary. Hank also showed great flexibility in making any repairs and he ensured that all workmanship was of the highest quality.

The finished product is beyond our expectations and we would have no hesitation in working with Alita Constructions again. I would be happy for you to provide a copy of this letter to any prospective client and also happy for them to contact me to discuss the project.

It is clear to me that all the team have been selected because they exhibit similar qualities in regard to customer service, honesty, and reliability. I would recommend Alita Constructions and their people and contractors to anyone who wants some construction work completed on time and within budget.

We recommend Alita Constructions as a quality, efficient and helpful commercial builder. From preliminary planning to completion we were able to work together very well which made the transition to the new premises a smooth one. The project was completed within the expected time frame and the end result is a quality architecturally designed and aesthetically pleasing building which exceeded our expectations. Alita Constructions have a good understanding of the compliance requirements for commercial developments which is essential in the current market and allowed for a very efficient handover. Any post occupancy items were completed without hassle and on time, which made our experience from start to finish a good one.

Alita Constructions built a factory for me recently and I am totally satisfied with the high standard of their work and competitive pricing.

They were very professional to deal with at all times, and I would have no hesitation in using them again. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who requires building construction.

Sports hall construction by Alita Construction

Free Reformed School Association

The FRSA has known and used Alita Constructions for many years. The last projects that Alita Constructions completed were the construction of the JCCC Middle School building, which is used for the Years 7-9 students. The building has an excellent design and works efficiently, and plus the project was completed on time and within the budget!

Alita Constructions also constructed the FRSA Administration and JCCC Reception area while they were working on the JCCC Middle School building. The Administration building was a mixture of new construction and renovations to the old building. At the time it was quite complicated as normal school operations had to continue. With the effort and help of the builder, it was possible.

Currently Alita Constructions is building three library facilities and three Sports Halls for 3 of our Primary Schools (Byford, Kelmscott, Rockingham). These projects are funded by the Australian Government but also require the input from our School community to finish the buildings. Alita Constructions is willing and able to work around this requirement.

We would recommend Alita Constructions to any business needing their services.

Aquatec

Aquatec Equipment

As we were undertaking a very large project with our new warehouse facility in Forrestdale, had a very tight schedule and a budget to work to, we needed a professional builder who we could rely on to deliver as promised.

After many hours of discussion with 5 different builders, including others who we had used in the past for other warehouses, our company decided on Alita Constructions and we feel we made the right choice.

We had been put into a spot by another builder who had charged us for the drawings and then was to re-imburse us for this cost if they got the job. The drawings took much longer than promised and there was a number of grey areas which we were uncertain about and we didn’t feel totally comfortable with the design. After consulting other builders and getting some very possible feedback from other clients who had used Alita in the past, we decided to approach them.

We had an initial meeting with Alistair Kleyn and explained our situation, budget, time schedule & the predicament with the drawings. He was extremely helpful and offered us professional advice which would save us money. He directed us to Mulder and Kampman Design who worked very quickly on our drawings to fix the flaws that existed and produce a more cost effective design. We then put the amended drawings out to tender to several builders and had a meeting with each one to discuss what they could offer us and if they could meet our time constraints. Alita to be honest were the only ones to quote us exactly as per the drawings with everything included, with others quoting and missing out key components to try to save them money. Alita quoted with the client in mind and were very accommodating when we asked them if we could use some of our contacts for certain aspects of the project. The end result was the project was done in a very cost effective, professional manner within the time constraints of the contract and we ended up with a quality building which we are very happy with.

Alita were in contact with us constantly throughout the course of the project and any minor problems that have occurred after completion that needed fixing within the last 12 months, they have been quick to rectify. I would like to extend a big thank you to the entire Alita team for their professionalism and the way they handled our project from start to finish.

I would be more than happy to recommend Alita Constructions over and above other builders who we have used in the past, to any potential client who is looking for a honest, reliable & professional builder who will work with you to deliver what you require when you require it.
