We have had involvement within the building industry for approximately 35 years in all areas from domestic to commercial developments.

New Builds

At Essense we build homes, not houses.


Whether you’re building a first home or a dream home, you can trust Essense to bring your new build to life. We’re in the business of delivering genuine quality, great value, and the highest possible standards, and have been for 35 years.


When we build, we do so with families in mind, because a new home may be a huge project for you, but it’s probably not the only thing going on in your life. During the build, we want you to be able to carry on a normal life and not be absorbed by every detail of the construction.

Alterations / Extensions

Whilst you might have had grand ideas for your property when you bought – or built – it, sometimes it’s only after you’ve been in a home for a while that you know what needs to be altered. And as your circumstances change, so too do your needs.


When you’re ready to start talking about changes, drop us a line. We’ve more than 35 years’ experience in the industry and have completed hundreds of alterations and extensions. We work to the highest possible standards and, because we understand the needs of families, we’ll do our best to let you carry on your life as normal throughout.

Multi Unit Developments

With Melbourne set to eclipse Sydney as Australia’s most populated capital within the next 15 years, it’s not surprising that the demand for housing is extreme. Multi-unit developments are springing up more and more frequently across Melbourne, and we are keen to talk to you about yours.


We have a track record of successful multi-unit developments over our 35 years in the building business, and ensure that each project is seamless and completed on time.


The quality of our build, and the high standards we set and maintain, will help to ensure a quick sale and profitable return.


If you’d like to know more about our multi-unit developments, please get in touch.

The high standards we set for ourselves and the quality of our workmanship should give you the peace of mind that when we bring your home up to date, everything will continue to stay looking good, long into the future.
