Our Team

Director & Construction Manager

Luke has over 20 years experience in the construction industry, operating his own business since 1998.

Completing his Apprenticeship as a Carpenter/Joiner, then sub-contracting to a variety of domestic and commercial builders for the next 5 years. Learning a wide range of skills and being exposed to the operations of a number of businesses, Luke soon realised he had a passion for building unique and challenging projects and he developed his goal of becoming a high quality builder in his own right.

The business is in a niche market as a boutique builder of premium quality projects to a variety of budgets and diverse styles. Luke works closely with his clients and staff and is fully involved in all aspects of the business operations and construction process. Luke manages the construction team and is also involved in the design, technical consultation with engineers, architects, planning consultants and he is the main contact for all customer service.

His role involves on site supervision and advice to the construction staff, pool builders, landscapers and other participants in the building process, as well as assisting with design, planning and engineering before construction commences. Luke is creative and has great attention to detail to ensure the finishes of the project are optimised. He works with clients throughout construction and is always available to review the work as built and suggest changes or enhancements to meet client expectations once the construction commences.

Luke is well regarded in his industry, with a proven reputation for completing consitent, quality, innovative and challenging projects, and he has the experience and knowledge to be a valued consultant to clients and architects/designers for all aspects of the development.

His commitment to this goal has been recognised, being awarded a number of Industry Awards for domestic building, with his greatest honours being awarded the Victorian MBAV Regional Builder of the Year for 2010 and 2005, the 2011,2010, 2009,2005 & 2004 MBAV Regional Builder of the Year for the North region of Victoria. Several nominations by MBAV for our projects into the National Building Awards are also a highlight.

Now serving on the Master Builders Association of Victoria Council of Management and the Chairman of the Country Sector Committee & the local Bendigo Section, Luke is heavily involved at the industry level and he has continued to develop his knowledge and skills with extensive training and ongoing participation in industry courses. Recently completing a Cert III 3 in OHS and also becoming an accredited MBAV Green Living Builder.

General Manager

A qualified accountant and experienced in a range of management and analyst roles, Luke’s wife Nikki formally joined Luke Drummond Builders 2005. Nikki has a strong passion and motivation to develop the most professional, honest and fully compliant custom builders’ administration division in Regional Victoria.

Our role is to enhance the construction team with accurate and detailed documentation and management and to provide a level of service to our clients and suppliers befitting to the quality of projects constructed.

Nikki believe’s every client deserves the time and effort from their Builder to produce a detailed Specification that lists all Inclusions, fixtures and products and materials. A house is a major investment and clients need to be well informed and all details checked and double checked before the project commences. Clients should be guided to understand EXACTLY what they are getting before the Contract is signed.

As the General Manager, Nikki manages the Administration, Estimating, Ordering, Marketing, OHS and Human Resource areas of the business. Her team includes an Estimator/ Purchasing Officer and an Adminstration Officer who performs claim, invoices, general administration and the OHS Manager role.

Luke Drummond Builders have a fully customised Construction management software system. “We can produce major commercial tenders within 2-3 weeks. Our Residential clients are presented quotes within 2 to 4 weeks depending upon workloads. We present a quoted price and a detailed (approx 30 pages) document outlining the inclusions of our price. You can be guaranteed a superior professional service and a competitive price, especially when you compare the items we include as standard in our quotes!”, says Nikki.

We employ trade qualified and apprentice carpenters and high quality staff for all aspects of our business. Our loyal staff work on each project with us, ensuring a consistent level of finish.

Our staff are experienced and committed to our mission of maintaining a proven reputation for high quality and professional service. They are also friendly and great people to deal with.
