David Steadman

Dip Building and Construction

Trusted, experienced, passionate and a lust for perfection are all characteristics our founder and chairman David Steadman possess’s in spades as anyone who meets him will attest. These are the qualities that he has passed on to his son Jake and his team and underpin the culture of the Steadman Building Group. David has spent over 40 years in the WA housing industry mastering his craft. The first 20 years he spent as a very successful sub-contractor and his understanding of contracting is why the expert group of supplier’s value the relationship with SBG so highly.

Many would walk over hot coals for David and his team such is that mutual respect. In the last 20 years, he turned his attention to personally managing the design, planning and production of hundreds of superb award-winning luxury homes. David’s vast experience as a contractor and builder in the WA housing market and the respect and trust he has earned from not only his team but his contractors has produced an enviable legacy of some of WA’s finest homes as well as lasting friendships with his clients.

George Allingham

Diploma in Project Management
Curtin University Growth program 26
Builders Reg # BP9879

George has spent a lifetime in the building industry starting in Northern Island and moving to Perth in 1988.  He held senior management positions for larger building companies and in 1995 started his own company Gransden Constructions which he grew into one of the most successful luxury builders in WA.  In 2016 he sold out of the company he founded to take a well earned break and see a bit of the world.  David and George have been friends and associates in building for 20 years so after some serious coercion on David’s part it seemed logical that the two of them team up to see out their careers in building together and to hand over the years of experience and knowledge to the next Generation.

George has building in his veins, he is the hands-on guy, loved by his trades and his team and respected and admired by his peers. He has a no compromise attitude and demands perfection from everyone around him and as a result has forged a reputation as a quality builder who is second to none.  He is active in the industry associations and various industry bodies and he brings a level of experience and expertise to the SCH team that when combined with the Steadman Family will guarantee there will be no better building experience available anywhere.
