Our Work

Frank takes a vision and transform it into a beautiful construction project straight from the pages of your favourite design magazine.

From high end custom homes in Melbourne and surrounding areas, to bespoke retail and commercial projects, we bring the same inspired attitude and unwavering commitment to quality to every project.

Over 30 years in the business we have proved ourselves to be the premier contemporary home builders in Melbourne. Our clients benefit from a flexible team of talented and highly skilled people, who have experience on diverse and complex high end building projects across the spectrum.

That means we can hand-pick the best people for the job.

As registered Master Builders, Victoria Building Commission Registered Builders and HIA Gold Members, our reputation for quality is confirmed by the industry’s strict quality standards. But more than that, our track record has continued to see Frank innovate and outperform other Melbourne contemporary home builders year after year.

It’s important to us that every project should be the result of close collaboration between the client, architect and us, the builder trusted to build great things. Strong industry partnerships and a long list of happy clients are just the tip of the iceberg. We invite you to browse our gallery of recently completed high end custom home builds to see for yourself what we are capable of.

Who knows, you might just be inspired for your own building project.

Custom Home Builds

We are proud and humbled to be counted among Melbourne’s best high end custom home builders. Redesigning the face of residential living in a stylish modern city like Melbourne is no easy feat. We have been doing just that for 30 years.

Every project is a new challenge and a new opportunity to learn.

Many of the projects we have been lucky enough to work on are as diverse as they are complex. From environmentally inspired woodland cabins on the Peninsula, to boutique inner-city residential transformations from central Tasmania to Sydney, our clients and the architects we work with trust Frank above other Melbourne contemporary home builders because they know we will deliver to the highest standards.

Our building process involves close collaboration with the client and architect, underpinned by a commitment to integrity. It’s no accident our company name reflects the way we work: direct, collaborative and professional for truly outstanding bespoke homes.

Functional and Beautiful Spaces

From high end custom homes to inspired retail and commercial spaces, our capabilities are always expanding to meet client’s demands for quality. With space at a premium for commercial and residential projects, Melbourne contemporary home builders and construction companies are faced with unique logistical challenges. Plus, with environmentally conscious design front of mind for every Australian client, the materials we use must be carefully selected for minimal impact.

These challenges are all in a day’s work for the Frank team.

Every project is personally overseen by Wes Alfredson, who founded the company in 1991 to take high end custom home building to a new level. With Wes’ varied experience in the building industry and a team of highly capable people working alongside, Frank has become a leader in contemporary residential and commercial construction.

We are constantly challenged to use innovative materials and techniques in our projects. Browse through some of our recent commercial and residential projects and you will see stunning features that stand out. But keep an eye on the perfectly executed details and you will quickly understand what sets Frank apart.
