Our Strength: Commitment to our Client's vision

Our Team

Our team consists of some of the very best people in the industry. The knowledge, experience and unique abilities that each member offers is the foundation for our success.

William Thomson

William started Swish Builders in 2006 full of ambition to build the best houses. With a broad range of experience in architectural building, renovation, and repair work, commercial, and high-rise construction and office fit-outs, William has a wealth of knowledge on which to turn that ambition into reality.

William is primarily responsible for preconstruction planning, contract management, quantity surveying, financial control, and business development. He leads the projects at a strategic and site level and remains actively involved throughout the design and construction process. William shares his time between managing the day-to-day running of the office, meeting clients and consultants, and visiting the numerous construction sites.

Alan Lowery
Project Manager

Alan joined Swish Builders in 2008 as a qualified cabinetmaker and apprentice carpenter. His attention to detail and carpentry skills were recognised and he progressed quickly to a foreman role. Since this time, over the past ten years, he has managed the successful delivery of many high-end residential projects.

Alan is responsible for planning and implementing the tasks on site and is the main point of contact for clients and subcontractors. Alan upholds the Swish standards by demanding quality and consistency from our teams through good communication and leadership.

Tenacious and hardworking, Alan is often found with a tool belt on, working well past knock-off in order to deliver a project on time.

The Team

Each project is assigned a team comprising a mixture of;

  • Project manager
  • Foreman carpenter
  • Carpenter
  • Apprentice

Our site foremen are all Licensed Building Practitioners (LBP’s) and are experienced hands-on carpenters in charge of the day-to-day running of the site.

Our carpenters are the guys who get most of the work done. They are chosen for their skills, knowledge, and ability to consistently deliver work of the highest quality.

We employ apprentices who are young, enthusiastic, creative and eager to learn. They’re schooled in our way of doing things and are valued as important members of our team.

All our staff hold and maintain a site-safe passport and first aid certificate.

No matter what their individual specialty, each member of our team has a high work ethic and is committed to giving clients the best experience once they entrust Swish Builders with their build.
