Wal Robbins Building Company


The Wal Robbins Story

Back in 1963 Wallace E Robbins started his own Building Company.

Working out of his home office in Fairfield Heights, he designed and constructed small home additions and garages as a sole trader, assisted by his wife Daphne and a small band of tradesmen. The growth of the business necessitated a move to commercial premises at Fairfield Heights in 1969.

In 1970 Wal Robbins & Company Pty. Ltd. was formed and enjoyed great success specialising in additions for a variety of clientele, including Defence Service home extensions.

Ray Fielder (a nephew of Daphne and Wal) joined the business in August 1971 to assist with the management of the ever-increasing workload.

Tragedy struck in December of the same year, when Wal died suddenly of a heart attack. This left the Company in Ray's control.

The following year the Builders' Licencing Board was formed. This governmental regulatory Board was set up to protect consumers from shoddy and incompetent builders. Licences were granted to builders with sufficient qualifications, ability, experience and sound financial management.

Wal Robbins & Company Pty. Ltd. was issued with Licence number 4403.

Ever expanding to accommodate the demand for quality home improvements, the Company constructed all types of additions and alterations over the years - always and only improving family homes.

We specialise in the design and construction of,

  • Ground floor extensions
  • First floor additions
  • Major internal alterations and renovations
  • Brick veneering and remodelling

With the resignation and retirement of Ray's Aunt and co-director Daphne Robbins in 1998, the business was reformed as Wal Robbins Additions Pty. Ltd., retaining all our highly trained and vastly experienced staff and tradesmen.

To comply with regulations, a new Licence was obtained - Licence number 96727c.

Ray's leadership has instilled strong teamwork among the staff, management and tradesmen, who all constantly strive to exceed customer expectations.

Strong work ethic, camaraderie and pride of workmanship provide the excellent results achieved by the Company. This is confirmed by many letters of commendation from our clients who appreciate the services provided by our friendly and efficient staff and especially our hard working, considerate and polite tradesmen

Today we enjoy the status of being one of the leading builders of home additions in the greater Sydney area.
