Alastair Kleyn Director of Alita Constructions

Alastair’s grandparents from both his father and mother’s side came from Holland in the 1950s and both grandparents settled in Armadale. Mr Kleyn worked in the brickworks and Mr Bruning was the Pastor for the local Armadale Free Reformed Church. Alastairs mother Hilde Bruning and father Arthur Kleyn met in 1972 and married in 1974. Arthur and Hilde had eight children; all born in the Armadale Hospital. Alastair was the second eldest child. Ali (Alastair) has very good memories of his upbringing in a house of eight children. It wasn’t uncommon to have twenty people around the dinner table when friends came around. There was always a lot of joy and laughter.
Ali’s Dad, Arthur Kleyn has been an active member of the local community, being a Councillor from 1991 to 1999 for the City of Armadale and a local builder for most of his working life.

Ali has lived in the Armadale area all his life, attending the Kelmscott John Calvin Primary school and then the Armadale John Calvin Christian college. Ali now resides in Champion Lakes with his wife and five children.

After leaving school in year 10, Ali started his apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery, whilst studying for his Diploma of Builders Registration at night school. Undertaking his study in the evening allowed him to work on perfecting his trade during the day in the building of residential houses and commercial buildings. Upon completing his apprenticeship, Ali worked as a tradesman, continuing to gain experience in many aspects of building.
Soon after, with a team of 6-10, Ali began trading as Ali’s Concrete Contractors and mainly focussed on commercial tilt panel buildings.
In 2004, Ali’s Concrete Contractors was incorporated into Alita Constructions, managing commercial projects from start to finish.

Ali has always had a passion for helping others. In 2015, Ali and Tim Devos started Pindari Mens Restoration House. Pindari Mens Restoration House is a not-for-profit Australian Charity that is committed to transforming men in need, into confident, self-sufficient leaders and members of their family and society.

Ali, his wife Rita and 5 children are christians and worship at the Free Reformed Church of Southern River. Working with the young adults and being in different leadership roles, Ali believes that you can not separate your Christian beliefs from how you live your life and how you do your work. For this reason, Ali is very strong on the culture of Alita Constructions and how it aligns with Ali’s Christian beliefs and foundations.


Alastair Kleyn takes on Ride for Change 2019!

Alastair Kleyn takes on Ride for Change to raise funds and awareness Pindari Mens Restoration House.

Ride for Change 2019!

Thanks for taking the time to read about the upcoming bike ride; Ride for Change 2019!

In September (30/09/2019 – 04/10/2019) myself and 17 others will be riding for 5 days…over 700kms and 9000m elevation from Bunbury through Busselton, Nannup, Ferguson Valley, Waroona and finishing at Pindari to raise funds and awareness for Pindari Mens Restoration House. Pindari helps men who themselves are ready and determined to end their endless cycles of addiction, homelessness, poverty, chronic anxiety and other dysfunctional behaviours. Read more about Pindari here.

Pindari is very close to my heart as I am passionate about being another spoke in the wheel in helping restore men’s lives who are caught up in destructive life choices that keep them in a cycle of hardship.

Over the past years, I have seen how much positive change one person can make, not only to himself but to all the lives of the people he is connected too.

As an amateur bike rider, this bike ride (including all the early morning training in the dark) will really push my mental and physical boundaries, and this, in turn, helps me understand only a small amount of the mental, emotional and physical journey a person living in addiction needs to go through to be fully restored back into fullness of life.

Pindari is 100% privately funded and is open to anybody in the community who needs help, and more importantly wants help.

This bike ride fundraiser is very important to Pindari in raising vital funds to meet budgets and to provide the service needed to support men in reconnecting them with positive and fulfilling relationships.

It has been two years since I participated in the last Pindari bike ride fundraiser and it certainly pushed my limits. As this years ride is going to be even harder, I aim to double what I raised in the 2017 ride and I have set my 2019 target at $10,000.

You can sponsor me and leave a message of support by following the link;

The Route

This year is a 5-day event… but don’t let that fool you. This ride is over 700kms and 9000m elevation, similar in length and elevation to the last ride, with one less day.

The route provides a great mix of flats and climbs, undulations and some epic scenic routes.

For a detailed look at what these days look like, please see below MapMyRide links for each day:

Once again thanks for taking the time to read about the Ride for Change 2019 Campaign. I look forward to sharing more with you throughout the training period and during the ride.

PYMS and Alita Constructions News Update



The BubbleDeck suspended slab is currently being installed at the PYMS project for the City of Mandurah and GP Down South.
BubbleDeck is a precast concrete floor system which makes floor slabs lighter and stronger by incorporating large, hollow plastic balls in a lattice of steel. With 1kg of recycled plastic replacing 100kg of concrete, it is a low cost and sustainable solution!

The civil stormwater has been completed using Eco Aid storm tanks (pic below) to provide storage capacity and the hydraulic in-grounds and pre-lays are nearing completion.

Going forward; there will be bulk import of fill to bring the site up to design level and then the detailed excavation of the lift pit and footings will commence.

The project is being built on the town’s old tip which was closed in the early 60’s. The challenge for Alita has been ensuring the design accounts for any future potential movement. Alita have achieved this by providing alternative engineered solutions for the building’s substructure.PYMS - Eco Aid storm tank installation by Alita Constructions
