Building Excellence

Valeo Constructions’ core business is the design and construction of new residential and commercial buildings.

We believe our expertise and track record in construction, combined with cutting edge design services and fast track programs, will ensure the successful delivery of each project.

We are predominantly active in the medium density residential accommodation market, providing entry level home ownership or investment accommodation in the form of boutique apartment developments.

We provide consultative services such as designers, architects and engineers to complete the design process and then deliver the actual construction through to completion.

The same principles of excellence that Valeo Construction has adopted in all projects since our establishment are still our priority today – our aim is to be ‘hands on’ with detailed participation in all areas of development and construction. The result of which is successful results for all stake holders.

Our Safety

At Valeo Construction, part of our guiding principles is communicating and promoting our high stance when it comes to Occupational Health and Safety. We believe it is imperative that a strong OH&S platform be the guiding force for our practices and construction methodology at every level. Thanks to the long-standing combined experience of our hand-picked staff, we at Valeo have a keen appreciation for the need of safe working practices.

Our commitment begins with our OH&S Policy which endorses our objective to provide all workers and visitors with an environment that is safe and free from risk. This is encapsulated and shown in our core value of excellence in safety.

We ensure that our daily operations comply with all legislative and regulatory requirements to ensure the safety of all site staff, sub-contractors and the public. This is put into practice through a range of practical initiatives:

  • All site managers and company safety representatives are accredited to a minimum OH&S Level 3;
  • All our site staff and senior management team are trained in first aid;
  • All our staff and sub-contractors participate in regular safety meetings;
  • Regular internal and external workshops and training initiatives.

The Valeo Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) is modelled to comply with Australian Standards (AS/NZ 4801) and the stringent requirements of the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner. Valeo is also registered with the Victorian State Government’s Construction Supplier Register (CSR).

Our OHSMS provides the important foundation for which we base our daily operations across all Valeo sites. This is achieved by conducting regular OH&S inspections and risk assessments to ensure the successful implementation of a strong OHSMS, including communicating regularly with WorkSafe Victoria.

We provide safety resources to all Valeo Construction staff through our industry partners such as;

  • Master Builders Association of Victoria (MBAV)
  • Safety Institute of Australia (SIA)
  • WHS Monitor
  • Various preferred Registered Training Organisations (RTOs)

This entire commitment can be proven by our unsurpassed safety statistics experiencing very low incident rates. Our recent yearly statistics provided by WorkCover shows that our industry rate performed 35.97% better than the industry average. This figure has consistently reduced year after year.

At Valeo, we operate with a viewpoint that a strong OH&S platform is not only a professional obligation, but also an important ethical and moral responsibility.

Our Clients & Testimonial

Following Practical Completion for the above mentioned project I would like to thank you and your team at Valeo Construction for making the project come to a successful end, with a high-quality finish. Valeo Construction has been good to deal with and I look forward to working with you and your team in the future and continuing our strong working relationship.

Valeo Construction provided a high quality finish to the apartment I recently purchased. They responded to my maintenance request in a extremely responsive manner and I was very satisfied with the result. The maintenance team was very responsive in relation to my maintenance request. The issue I had was resolved to my satisfaction and they left my area clean after visiting.

We write to congratulate Valeo on the successful completion of two of our recent projects, MODE South Yarra and 211 Dorcas Street South Melbourne (39 and 28 apartments respectively).

From the tender stage, Valeo sought to understand our product, customer base and project intentions. Throughout the building period they were pro active and effective in decision making. Both projects were a success for a I parties, and the expected standards of finish were met to an exceptional level.

Noteworthy benefits of working with Valeo included:

  • Valeo always provided a reliable, an approachable and trusted working relationship
  • Valeo adapted well to changes in project requirements whilst effectively controlling costs (an example being the re design of the penthouse level in MODE)
  • Valeo undertook value management processes to meet project cost objectives, whilst remaining conscious of the quality and design finish   expectations
  • Valeo understood the importance of key sales and in marketing design features and worked closely with the client to meet such objectives (an example being the unique MODE breakfast bars)
  • Valeo worked to resolve challenging site and building constraints (an exam p e being the basement re-design and construction methodology at Dorcas Street as a result of foundation issues)

The feedback from buyers was overwhelmingly positive and the settlement period ran smoothly which can, in part, be attributed to the quality of finish. Defects were minimal and all were completed prior to handover. We are confident these two projects will provide a timeless legacy for both Perri Projects and Valeo Construction, and one that we are both proud of.

We would d not hesitate to recommend Valeo for any future projects of similar size and nature.
