Our People

The Kingbuilt Team

 

Phil King

Managing Director

With over 20 years in the building industry, Phil has the experience and the passion to make sure that every home we build lives up to his prized Kingbuilt brand identity. Phil’s particular nature and attention to detail ensures that all of our staff work to a very high standard. Everything under his hand is expected to be done properly – the first time!

Lochlin Wall

General Manager

Lochlin brings a wealth of industry and leadership experience to the Kingbuilt team, having held management positions at Laminex, Austral bricks, and Meca Enterprises (builders), and has now worked at Kingbuilt for 8 years. Lochlin’s “let’s do it” attitude and his determination to overcome challenges make him a dynamic manager.
Lochlin has three teenage boys that keep him on his toes on weekends.

 

Nick Costabile

Commercial Manager

We’re very pleased to have Nick in our team. Nick Costabile manages the Kingbuilt Commercial realm – right from expressions of interest, to the official handover night. Nick’s most outstanding qualities are his professionalism, dependability and competence. He’s right there for his clients, every time.

 

Kelly Hedley

Administration & Drafting

Kelly’s friendly disposition and quiet competence make her a pleasure to deal with. A lady of multiple talents, she backs up the admin team when the pressure is on, and also helps out Danny on the drafting side of things. Kelly takes great care in every part of her work, fitting in perfectly with Kingbuilt’s motto – “Do it right the first time”.

 

Ollie Kidd

Marketing & IT Manager

Ollie delivers all our marketing and IT needs. Brochures, websites, signs, and everything else emblazoned with the signature Kingbuilt green are all his work. Ollie builds and manages the technical side of all our electronic systems for quoting, tracking and managing our projects and systems. On weekends Ollie looks after his home and family, and enjoys outdoor activities like kayaking.

 

Danny Sheehan

Draftsperson

Danny is our drafting guru. His specialty is turning a client’s dreams into a set of detailed, fully engineered, approved plans just waiting to be built! When we build your new home, you may meet Danny at the stage of drawing or fine tuning your home design. Danny’s skill with a mouse and keyboard, as well as his sense of humour are equally appreciated among the Kingbuilt team. Danny hails from the hills of Neerim South, which is a few minutes drive north out of Warragul.

 

Heidi King

Accounts Manager

Meet Heidi! Accounts are what Heidi is good at and she’s been managing them at Kingbuilt for nearly 5 years. Everything she does, she does it well. Always quietly working away to keep everything in perfect order, Heidi is a very highly valued member of the Kingbuilt team. On weekends, Heidi likes to say goodbye to numbers and catch up with friends and family.

 

Jim Down

Construction Manager

Leading the construction team at Kingbuilt, Jim Down is renowned for the pride he takes in a job well done. With 15 years of construction experience, Jim is fully qualified to his role. All work under his hand is “Done right the first time”. Jim works hard to maintain a strong culture of quality and professionalism throughout the Kingbuilt team, our carpenters, and tradespeople. Subcontractors are selected based on performance, dependability, and outstanding workmanship.

 

James McDougall

Supervisor

James has over a decade of construction management experience, having supervised projects over $4 million in value. He knows his job inside out. More recently the majority of his expertise has been turned to domestic construction and management, and he’s proved to be ideally suited to this role. “Dooges” loves to have a laugh and his sense of humour colours the day in the office or on site. He’s also the proud dad of a two-year-old boy.

 

Travis Kirby

Supervisor

Travis doesn’t say much, but his expertise as a first class site foreman says it all. A valuable member of the team, Travis has managed nearly a dozen commercial projects for Kingbuilt. Architects, trades and fellow team members alike find Travis a pleasure to work with and a dependable and professional man on the job. After hours Travis heads back to his Traralgon home to relax with his family.

Gary is concise, efficient and very effective. A more recent addition to the Kingbuilt team, Gary has significant construction experience and formidable organisational skills. Gary currently manages some of our biggest commercial projects. His positive attitude is appreciated in the team.

 

Brad Kirby

Supervisor

Travis’s brother, Brad, is another recent addition to the team. Brad is a very capable and skilled commercial supervisor and leading hand, well up to his job of supervising commercial projects. Brad’s ability to jump in and make things happen is an appreciated talent in the team, considering the constantly expanding portfolio of projects in the Kingbuilt folders.
